Look in the Ports and Hotels section of Chruise Chat.. there were discussions on Galveston from Hobby not too long ago. I think someone said they rented an enterprise car and droppped it off in Galveston for much less then the cost of the cruise shuttle. With 10 people figuring $65 a piece for the cruise shuttle, that's $650 you can easily rent 3 SUVs from enterprise or AVIS for half of that.. just make sure you do so before hand and get a confirmation number.

As far as the airfare booked through the cruise line, I have got to the point where I don't even bother asking what their price is and go straight to the airline fo rmy air travel. It always seems to cost half when you buy the tix direct.
