We are leaving in Dec. out of Galveston. We don't know weather to wear winter clothes to leave, or on the cruise. Does anyone cruise in the winter and have to wear coats?

Sherri, my husband & I went out of Galveston last Nov. While it was pretty cool, we didn't need a parka. Just a sweater or jacket will do. It isn't summer but it isn't REALLY cold either.

And as you can see by my ticker, we wil board Ecstasy in 10 days!! I'll have plenty of pictures of the ship & will post my review when we return. Pray that Dean goes south as Cozumel hasn't fully recouped from Wilma a few years back. Just pack for your destination(s) and you will be fine.

Thank you AllyGirl. And you guys have a wonderful time. I want to see the updates they did to the ship. They spent alot of money fixing things and changing them. I can't wait. Friends of ours went on the Ecstasy and they said they saw a poster size photo of Billy and I right when you go on board. It was our formal night last oct. I told her I was famous, she should have bought one and I would have autographed it...
You guys will have a great time. Let us know about the island and all. Your right about them not recooping yet. I will pray.
Will it be just you and your hubby?

Sherri-

Galveston in December can be tricky weather. It can by 85 degrees, it could be 50 degrees. (Heck here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area it can be those temps too) You are going to have to wait until you are a week or so out before you are going to know what its going to be like. I would say DON"T bother with winter jackets unless you are coming from someplace cold and already have them. Even if it is cold in Galveston by the second day you will be in warm to hot weather in the Caribbean. Bring a light jacket or a sweater (my wife brings a sweater in the middle of summer because the inside of the ship is too cold for her.) and you can use it inside the ship too and not just on the first day. I doubt it will be so cold in Galveston that you will have an issue for the short time you are going to be there.

And my Mother-n-law. Her husband had rotator cuff surgery a few weeks ago and we thought she needed a break. He's right handed & that was the shoulder that had the surgery so he can't do anything and ya know how men are! Anyway, it looks like Dean is headed south of Cozumel so keep your fingers crossed!
