No you are not the only one. The Pre-arrival guide emailed to me yesterday still stated that transfers were only available from IAH. It looks like they still are sending out incorrect information.

Thanks for organising the linked dinning :-)

As for the FE - I am happy for 15-20 staterooms per group, I think 25 might be pushing it for what I have planned but I will of course be happy with the general consensus. Thanks again for settling this early so we can make a start

If any of you are interested in letting the girls get in touch, I loved having pen pals when I was younger lol, just pm me and we can swap email addresses.

My daughter Beth is 11.
My daughter Hailey is 11 right now and will turn 12 the day before we cruise. She is very interested in being pen pals with kids around her age. PM if your DD is interested. Hailey's has an email address and she uses it for emails as well as iMessage on her iTouch. She is a big One Direction Fan!!

Original one-way Enterprise booking in September: = $ 84.78

Pickup Branch: Return Branch:
HOUSTON HOBBY ARPT GALVESTON
8601 PANAIR ST 5919 BROADWAY ST
HOUSTON, TX 77061-4142 GALVESTON, TX 77551-4306
(713) 645-7222 (409) 740-0700

Car Information:
Type of Car: Full Size
Examples: Chevy Impala, Nissan Altima, Dodge Charger or simi
Holds 5 passengers and 4 luggage

Rate information (all rates in U.S. DOLLARS):
Daily 1 DAY @ 64.99 = 64.99
TEXAS REIMBURSEMENT FEE 1 DAY @ 1.35 = 1.35
* Subtotal = 66.34
CONCESSION RECOVERY FEE 11.11 % = 7.37
SALES TAX 10.00 % = 7.38
HARRIS COUNTY STADIUM TAX 5.00 % = 3.69
Total charges = 84.78


Rebooking in December - same car, same dates - but with Costco card: $78.95 (so closer to $80 not $70 as I inaccurately stated earlier; apologize in advance for any grief that caused anyone)

Pickup Branch: Return Branch:
HOUSTON HOBBY ARPT GALVESTON
8601 PANAIR ST 5919 BROADWAY ST
HOUSTON, TX 77061-4142 GALVESTON, TX 77551-4306
(713) 645-7222 (409) 740-0700

Car Information:
Type of Car: Full Size
Examples: Chevy Impala, Nissan Altima, Dodge Charger or simi
Holds 5 passengers and 4 luggage

Rate information (all rates in U.S. DOLLARS):
Daily 1 DAY @ 60.44 = 60.44
TEXAS REIMBURSEMENT FEE 1 DAY @ 1.35 = 1.35
* Subtotal = 61.79
CONCESSION RECOVERY FEE 11.11 % = 6.86
SALES TAX 10.00 % = 6.87
HARRIS COUNTY STADIUM TAX 5.00 % = 3.43
Total charges = 78.95
*If you inquired about coverages or additional driver fees, the rates are not reflective in your estimated total. These fees will be added to your contract at the time of pick up. Additional surcharges, local taxes, etc. may apply.

Toll Road Usage Program; click here for more information: www.htallc.com/enterprise

Following mileage rule applies:
MILEAGE IS UNLIMITED WITHIN THE RENTING STATE
AND BORDERING STATE. IF TRAVELING OUTSIDE OF
THESE STATES, MILEAGE WILL BE AT 200 FREE MILES
PER DAY AND $.25 EACH ADDITIONAL MILE.

Important Pickup Information for Airport Reservations:

COUNTER IS IN THE TERMINAL. A SHUTTLE WILL BE PROVIDED
TO OUR OFFSITE LOCATION.


Both are for pickup on Friday, May 17 at Houston Hobby for a full size car.
I was able to call Enterprise and get the same rate as above.

Unfortunately, they could not confirm a car seat for me, and even if they could, the price with taxes, etc was right about $85.

I don't want to drag a car seat along with me, for just the first 45 miles of the trip, so I guess I keep (and hope it runs from Hobby), my DCL transfers.

Thanks for the help though - at least others can benefit from this same rate information!

You ROCK, Sarah!!!

With my name, please add MIL as well. We are making her final payment today - and already purchased airfare - so she is definitely onboard. Couldn't coerce FIL to come too, but she will definitely love the cruise.

We are leaving on the Magic this week (9 nights) . Our FE is organized to be 9 in a group so that each day one family is assigned to deliver. Maybe if this 14 night voyage has 14 families in each FE group? Just sayin'

Have fun!! This will be the first 8-night itinerary, right? Key West, PC and CC? I booked some friends on that itinerary for late April, so have been keeping an eye out for any pointers to tell them.

Hopefully no fog for you guys - this past weekend was craziness!

We are getting several little princesses who are 6 years old at late dinner it looks like! Binkytell (Sarah) is coordinating getting that together, and she will pop on here. She's in Scotland, so probably snoozing right now. Be sure to keep an eye out for her posts!

Yup can't spend all my time on here

I'm in agreement with you Sara, 15-20 cabins sounds good to me too.

I think we might try to do linked dining! DH was against it, but now seems more open to the idea. I'll work on him more and then let you know. I know that it might be too late to really be part of your group, but maybe we'll at least be seated near you all.

Thanks, Mandy! It IS the first on the new itinerary. Looking forward to Key West, even though we only get to be there 1/2 day. Bucket list. Our grandson's 10th birthday is actually on the same day as the WDW visit (yay!), so that makes it more magical. We are going as "placeholders" for the second room, since kids are free these trips from Galveston and our DD has five kids (surprise twins after their three-- OMG)
The FB page for this week's sailing is all a-dither over the fog thing. What a problem for last week's sailing!

When we cruised in 2011, dawns husband didn't want to link either but she told him they would probably get linked with others anyway, so she went ahead and did it and we all got along fabulously.

On the wbta we had around I'm guessing about 50 of us linked, all within tables of each other. So you will be part of a group
