    Does anyone know (worst case scenario) if they have on-location testing at the Galveston port?



    I don't know about testing at the port, but there's a Walgreens a few blocks away in Galveston, as well as all over the Houston metro area. Search Walgreens and CVS in the area and I bet you can find one with the rapid tests before you board.

    I thought it was only soda and water that was mandatory to be carried on. While not recommended by most and would most likely involve a trip to the naughty room I thought that you could still put your wine in checked luggage. 

    From RC FAQ page:


    On boarding day, guests may bring onboard two (2) 750 ml bottles of personal wine or champagne per stateroom in their carry-on luggage. If more than two bottles of wine or champagne are brought onboard, including any alcoholic beverages purchased in ports-of-call or in our onboard shops, they will be stored by the ship and delivered to your stateroom on your last day onboard.

  3. For my husband & I, just being able to board a ship every 2 to 3 yrs is rewarding, there are many people who don't have the opportunity. Granted, our experience on some have not been the best, yet all in all we have enjoyed all our cruises. Our main goal is to see places we might otherwise not get to, enjoying the friendship of others we meet and relaxing. The minor things we didn't like, is just that, minor. We don't judge 1 class of ship, no type cabin as being better then another, because everyone chooses for their own personal reasons. As long as we each have had an enjoyable cruise, that is what matters.


    I couldn't have said it better myself.

  4. Try to find out where the exit door (I'm sure there's a proper name). On excursion days that we were met by tenders, they started preparing very early. It was noisy...equipment, people, boats and I don't know what else they were doing. On days we docked it wasn't a problem.

  5. Ivroberts...On the question of getting to Hobby by 1:00. If that's when your flight leaves remember you need to be there at least an hour before. We easily made it home to northwest Houston (about 45 min. north of Hobby) by noon, but we also had no traffic issues to deal with. They've been working on I-45 on one of the bridges leaving Galveston and if this road is closed you won't make it. I'd book the later flight and relax. :)
