I'm new to this forum, but it's a great source of information. We're flying into Houston to depart on Ecstacy from Galveston in May. Meeting up with about 17 family members. We're flying in the day before departure to cut down on stress. We saved a TON on airfare booking ourselves - $740 for three people roundtrip from Tampa vs. $483 per person through Carnival, plus a $50 pp deviation fee for arriving a day early. Any suggestions on where to stay close to the airport and arrange for transportation service to the cruise terminal? When we return we need to get off the ship as early as possible, as we have a 1:25 PM flight home. We need to be home early due to other obligations. The ship docks at 8:00. It's a 1 and 1/2 hr ride to the airport. We're hoping to arrange pickup at a specific time. How quickly does disembarkation go & any suggestions on hotel/transporation? Thanks!
