Decided on last minute that my husband and I want to go on a 5 or 7 day cruise in early January and also having my mom ( visiting from Germany ) accompany us....we live in Texas so we can drive down to Galveston and board the ship....questions are as follows......
Are there only two cruiseships in Galveston? Wich is a better choice? Would love the Mexico or the Caribbean kind, not sure yet what to book.
We all are in to gambling, food and tours....what is the ball park for a tour off the ship if booked through the ship ?
Also, my mom being a German national, does she need visa to go to any of the ports?
Casinos: slot machines, are they still coin operated or like Vegas with paper money witch takes all the fun away, lol ??
What time do the stores, clubs and restaurants close on the ships? Anything open all night long?
What about the pool hours, can u take midnite swims?
Is getting the insurance really necessary ?
THANKS for all responses for this newbie........
