We got transfers from Houston Hobby froma place called galveston limousine service for 50 bucks apiece round trip. Its about 32 bucks cheaper than Carnival's transfers, and i think they will even pick you up on Saturday. Contrary to the name, though, i dont think you ride in an actual limousine, more like a shuttle bus.
We had our travel agent hold 2 seats for us on a Southwest flight while we decided what to do, and boy are we glad we did! I paid 496 for 2 round trips from Birmingham this morning, and now the cheapest thing you can find is 700. We were going to drive to New Orleans as well, but there is no way i wanted to do the 11 hour trek to Galveston, not to mention the lack of hotel rooms.
Hmmmm I should have thought about southwest from B'ham - we are leaving from Huntsville on American...
There is another alternative as well - you can rent a car from Enterprise and even with the $40 one way drop off fee, it looks to be cheaper for our family of 4 than CCL's bus or a private limo (we are arriving SAT and spending the night in a hotel - were we not doing that, the limo you suggested probably would have been the best bet.)
