Not sure why it showed up unavailable, but it's looks okay now. Hopefully it stays that way.

I just made the final payment on the Jan. 4 cruise and was told it was still and 8 night cruise. Are we doing FE's? Also, anyone know of a good hotel at the port in TX? We are coming down early for extra R&R.

I checked it again tonight and it did the same thing - or it said it was all sold out. I rechecked a few more times, because I didn't believe it could be sold out already and after the 3rd time, rooms where available. I hope they will change the itinerary on this cruise.

Someone has started a facebook page for FE. It is a few posts back.

Also, for hotels, I've stayed at the Hotel Galvez and Moody Gardens Hotel. Both I'd recommend. The Hotel Galvez is on the sea wall and has a really nice outdoor pool. It is close to restaurants and shopping.

The Moody Gardens Hotel, is on the other side of the Island, and you have to drive to get anywhere. They do have a water park across the street, and three pyramids within walking distance. Each pyramid has a different theme - aquarium, rainforest, and I can't remember the 3rd one. This is also a really nice hotel, but if you want to do anything like dinning out and shopping, you will have to drive to get there.

Oh, we've also stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort, the West-Seawall one. It's nice and new, a little far from any of the things to do on the island though (Just like Moody Gardens hotel). Again, this one is also on the sea wall, it's just not where everything else is located. I believe it's cheaper than the first two hotels that I mentioned.

I hope the ports stays the same. I love Key West and Grand Cayman. That's why we booked this cruise.

Ok...so I think we're going to bite the bullet and stick with this cruise. I was hoping for a fare drop, but I don't think it's going to happen. At any rate, this is probably the last year I can get away with pulling dd10 out of school (She goes to the public middle school next year where they aren't as flexible as her current school)---so we might as well enjoy it while we can!

Can't wait for Key West!

I'm looking for great ideas on how to get my 5th grader interested in Hemingway and the Mayan Ruins (not at the same time necessarily =)!

Anyone know where the best parking is in Galveston? We have always parked at the pier, but wondering if there is a better place.

This is our first time to stay in Galveston. We read some reviews and decided to change to the Marriott. Hope this is a good one.

Hello all. Finally pulled the trigger today with the Kids sail free promo going on, so we'll be joining you. It will be myself, DW, DD (7) and DS (4 months).

We've done many cruises before, but this will be our first Disney cruise, really looking forward to it.

Question, what exactly is an FE?

We have never done FEs before, but what I understand is that they are small gifts that you exchange with others on the ship. It is arranged beforehand with each other. I'm new at this, and still learning myself. I think someone started a Facebook page on a previous page to discuss FE. Hope this helps.
