I'll agree with that. If I had even been able to drive anywhere close to the speed limit or above 5mph I would have been thrilled. You can't drive like a maniac when the rest of the highway has enough time to grill a burger before your car moves 5 inches. No reason I could see for the traffic either. It was a good thing I didn't have a gun. I would have shot out my own tires. Just to have a reason to be sitting there.

As for Galveston I'm not sure why so many people don't like it? There were tons of hotels on the island or in Texas City. We booked a hotel a little over a month before we sailed and had plenty of places to choose from in all different price ranges. The locals we met prior to the cruise and after were all friendly and nice.

Someone who just sailed out of Galveston on the last cruise out of that port talked to 2 different DCL cast members and they said Dis will be back and will cruise out of the new Bayport terminal.... Fingers crossed this is legit!!!!

I really hope that's true!! I really wanted to cruise with Disney but I missed them. We live about 4 hours away from Houston so I hope they come back!

I was on the last cruise out of Galveston and heard they also that they would be back to Texas but who knows if it is true. I do hope so

If DCL comes back to Texas, or even NOLA, I will change our January 2015 cruise of of Miami and be thrilled! Just for us to fly to Miami is going to cost between 700-1200 when we could spend less than $100 to drive 3 hours to a Galveston or 5.5 to NOLA. Fingers crossed! (And thanks for all the friendly Texas comments! I didn't realize how friendly our state was until we moved to the NE and experienced culture shock!) Yes, we love our guns but we don't drive any worse than any other part of the country...DC traffic was the worst!
