I started looking last night at some 2014 sailings. Haven't even been on this one, my first cruise, and I'm already ready to book another!

Just booked it

Couldn't pass up the price. We just booked this cruise too. It will be me, my wife Ashley and our son who will be a few week short of turning 1.

We all cruised out of Galveston on the Magic back in April/May. So convenient we couldn't pass it up. We have a soft spot for the Wonder since we got married on her back in 2009.

Dead Thread??......

.....or maybe just on life support!

I'm surprised there's not more posts on here, but I guess the Facebook page is receiving most of the info. Dis Boards are a very useful forum for info, but this thread is quite inactive compared to other cruises we've done.

Yeah, I keep hearing crickets here. I guess everyone is talking on Facebook. Too bad for those of us that choose not to use Facebook.

For us, in Jamaica we are doing a horse and buggy ride. We are undecided on Grand Cayman. We've been before, so we've done the tourist thing (Hell, Turtle Farm). We might just stay on the ship that day. For Cozumel, we are doing the Tequila tasting.

excited

Hey all

We are excited to be cruising to Mexico & Jamaica. We just found this board tonight. Not sure what fe is but no thank you to facebook. I tried to post earlier today but it didn't go to post.

Did I say we are newbies to DLC? This is our first......wish they were not leaving Galveston.

Welcome to the thread for our cruise! FE's are Fish Extenders - you can do a search on here or on Google to find a full explanation. It's a nice idea, but a lot of work which, thankfully, my DW is doing.

First of all, thanks for your service to our country. Please know it's appreciated.

Do you spend time in Galveston before/after cruises? We're cruising with our 4 yr old DGD, staying the night at Hotel Galvez. Spent some time on Cruise Critic and got lots of advice - looking at dinner Friday at either Rainforest Cafe or Bubba Gumps, unless you might have a favorite Galveston spot a 4 yr old would enjoy.

I haven't spent any time in Galveston. Howver, I don't think you can go wrong with either place as far as food quality goes. The Rainforest Cafe will have the noise and lights, so you might want to consider that with a 4 yr old. Some love it, some cry. Bubba Gumps won't do anything for your child except provide nurishment. Bucket of Trash is good!

The other 2 times I departed Galveston, I drove down in the middle of the night and arrived at port an 11am. Driving down from Oklahoma is about an 9-10 hour drive. Might have to stay overnight this time.

You should be able to get into the port at 1100. Boarding started around 11:45 for both of our cruises. The Beach Blanket Buffet should be open at 1200. We always do that and then hang around deck until 1:30 when the rooms are open.
