My wife and I have been so busy at work we haven't had time to think about our cruise in less than two weeks!
However, we are beginning to plan.
Some have suggested arriving early between 11:00am and 11:30 to avoid the crowds in Galveston. We have done the some on other cruises out of Galveston and it worked really well.
A question in order to avoid the long tender waits in Cozumel we plan on booking an excrusion. This should us to leave early with the Princess early excursion groups in lieu of waiting for an unescorted tender number.
We have heard, with the piers in Cozumel destroyed by the recent hurricane, that it has been taking up to 5 hours to tender off the ship.
