Went last November on the Splendor of the Seas with Royal C. Had a great time. Everything went smooth. The Panama City tour went a little long. 12 days was not quite long enough for us. Love to cruise. There are many excursions to take, depending on what you want to do. If you have any specific questions, just ask.
Shermans - We haven't cruised out of Galveston yet (but live in Texas). However, we did cruise on Celebrity Galaxy for Southern Caribbean in 12/2001 and loved her! I was excited when it was announced the Galaxy would be doing that itinerary out of Galveston, as hubby and I want to definitely try it!
