My flight arrives at Houston Hobby at 10:55. I have heard stories that you have to wait an hour or two for the carnival transfer service to the port. Would it be better (its a little cheaper) to get a transfer service from an independent service so that I could get to the port earlier? The Galveston Limo Shuttle Service has a shuttle that leaves at 11:30. Is that enough time to get my bags and get on that shuttle?
i think that only giving yourself a half-hour to get to the shuttle would be cutting it real close. Can you call and make a reservation, that way the shuttle will wait for you. I don't like taking the cruise lines buses, you have to wait until they are full and its like a cattle drive.
I was afraid I would have to wait until the bus was full to leave, and I really don't want to get to the port late in the afternoon. I think I will research and find a shuttle that I can make a reservation with. I'd rather get to the port and get on board!!!
Thanks. I did speak with them and they said if one person went to get the luggage the other could check in with them and as long as we've checked in before 11:30 they would wait for us to get our luggage.
