  1. Looks like we are on the move and have entered the channel.
  2. We are currently anchored off the coast of Galveston awaiting for the port to open.
  3. We did the Blue Hole and Dunn's River Falls with Dr. Fun Tours during Christmas 2018 while on the Horizon. It was a private tour for our family only. Very nice guides and dependable. I would use them again.
  4. Sorry I didn’t take a picture, but from what I recall the breakfast menu was limited to cold items such as pastries and cereals. Enjoy your cruise and curious to see how you compare Carnival to Royal?
  5. Let's hope. The person at the airport office suggested that they might try and fix it. Ha Ha.
  6. It was the best price I could find to avoid the App Ride disaster at LAX. About half of what other limo companies wanted.
  7. Okay it's time for a quick wrap up of our trip. Overall we had a great time and enjoyed the week off and spending it with our family. We probably won't do this itinerary again as we felt the weather was too cold for the outbound and inbound sea days. Plus 3 sea days is one too many. We felt like we couldn't take advantage of the outdoor ship activities as we have in the past on a Caribbean cruise. We kinda expected that while choosing this cruise, but we thought we might give it a chance. We certainly enjoyed Cabo and PV, but not a big fan of Mazatlan. The overall food selection was decent, but we have noticed a gradual decline in the selection of choices and quality in the included dining areas. As with all cruise lines, there is a push to encourage people to eat at the the pay per venues. The staff was great. Very friendly and accommodating, especially the dinning and kitchen staff who went out of their way for our food allergies. Kudos to Carnival. Obviously the ship is new and shiny and so we had no complaints. We had previously sailed on the Vista and Horizon so we knew what to expect. Up next we may gave the Mardi Gras a try. We are looking at either Christmas or New Years week next year. Thanks for following along this week and I hope that we were able to answer some questions and build up the cruise fever for others. Oh and one more thing, I want to give a shout out to American Airlines for buying us a new piece of luggage.
  8. Flight # was 258 leaving at 12:10pm. We pre-booked with Prime Time Shuttle for roughly 85.- each way for 4 adults and 5 pieces of luggage plus tip. About 200.- total. Travel time was about 30 minutes each way.
  9. We decided to let Carnival take our luggage off the ship except one bag, so we waited in the Platinum area until they released us around 8:40ish. It was around 9:15 by the time we left the port area and on our way to LAX. Our flight was scheduled for 12:10, so we had plenty of time and no traffic issues. I will try to do a post trip wrap up tomorrow and answer any questions. Thanks for following along. Good night.
