My number one tip for cruising is: Don't try to do everything, you can't. Just enjoy the things you can do, and save the other stuff for the next one.

Get a cheap shoe holder for behind the bathroom door. You can keep so much in it.

Go to Walmart and buy some beach toys and cheap inflatable floats to use at castaway cay. They sell them on the island but they're really expensive so bringing your own will save you some $$! Ditto on the floats!

We made first cruise on Magic 2-9-2013. We did 6 day west, Grand Cayman, do not miss swim with sting rays. Galveston lots of close parking, drove up 10 am dropped family and bags, parked car, boarded by 11:30 lunch at top siders deck 9, room by 1:30. Sailed 4:30
Signed up for Fastasy May 2014. Cant say more that that. Tons of videos on you tube including Galveston departure. Watch Galveston web cams.
