I am planning a cruise in October and New Orleans and Galveston are both a five hour drive from my home. Which is the better ship? I know they are both the same class but has one been refit soone rthan another?

I'd go with the Fantasy. It was recently refitted, and New Orleans is just a neater place to cruise out of than Galveston. Go a day early so you can eat great and hit the French Quarter. My brother-in-law and his wife just completed a cruise on the Fantasy and loved every part of it.

See how you like going out of Galveston nedt week and then decide. I don't think you can go wrong with either ship, since they are the exact same class.

However, I am also very partial to New Orleans because of the new terminal and ease of parking right on top of where you check in.

Have a great time on the Conquest.

We have done both ships and ports. We liked New Orleans and the Fantasy a little more, mostly because of New Orleans, not the ship. We arrived a day early and stayed a couple days on the end and had a great time. Ready to go again.
