I just got all of my details worked out. I booked my tickets myself (because I had points to spend on my credit card!)gave that info to my TA who then booked my suttle with carnival. We are staying at the Sheraton North Houston Hotel. Its right next to the airport. Our TA recommended it. We fly in Saturday night, have a nice dinner, get some sleep and the next morning we will just take the hotel suttle back to the airport, go to baggage claim and get on the Carnival suttle to the ship. That is my plan anyway!!
