Hi! I was reading in another thread (Topic: Ground Transport from Houston-Bush to Galveston) -- and in your comments you say you flew INTO Galveston? So there is an airport actually on Galveston Island? I'm asking because I was worried that we would have to fly into Houston and then take a two-hour-and-fifteen-minute shuttle bus ride down to Galveston!

Any info will be appreciated!

My bad! We flew into Houston-Hobby Airport. It was about a 45 minute ride from there to the port. Can't say enough good things about Melva. If you need a ride give her a call. Which ship are you going on? If it's the Rhapsody I am so envious. Hope this helps. Pennie

Oh, Penny thank you for this information! Hmmm well the cruise planner/travel agent recommended the Rhapsody, but it's for a seven-night cruise, and due to hubby's work considerations a three-night would be much more "do-able" so we're still looking around.

Right now from searching online it looks like the only RC three-night cruise is to the Bahamas, and sails from Miami! So i think we're going to have to go with that rather than sailing from Galveston. But the Rhapsody certainly sounded wonderful!!!

The three-night to Bahamas is aboard the Majesty of the Seas, so if anybody has any words of advice/info/opinion on the Majesty please post.

Thanks again

The Majesty is just as great. We did that one two years ago. You won't be disappointed. Let me know if I can help anymore. Pennie

Trust me a three night cruise is not long enough. Try to go for at least four nights. It makes a big difference. Pennie

Majesty of the Seas was the first ship we ever sailed on, had a great first time experience with RCCL so we are going again on the Enchantment. 3 days was a little too short but I would recommend a short trip for the first timer. The ship is in great shape and I have no complaints about the food. The entertainment was so-so. I would consider doing it again just to go back to CoCoCay. One of RCCL's private islands. Post any questions you might have, I'd be glad to answer them.

Thanks Pennie and Amy and everyone else for your comments, opinions, info and advice!

Re 3-nights v. 4-nights, Hubby and I suddenly realized that the 3 nights means actually only two days!

Well, we'll find something just perfect i'm sure, with the help of you all and the cruise planner -- i think Hubby and I are cowards about being more than a few feet from dear ol' terra firma for very long
