Our Carnival Conquest sailing was moved from New Orleans to Galveston. Have any of you veteran cruisers found a good, inexpensive mode of transportation (taxi, limo, shuttle) from Houston Hobby airport (or IAH) to Galveston?
I just returned Sunday from the Conquest. Both this year and last year on the Elation, we used Extreme Elegance. They were a little cheaper than Carnival transfers. What I like about them is that we flew to Houston the day before and stayed at a hotel, and Extreme Elegance picked us up directly at the hotel. The other limo companies I checked only went to the airport, which meant we would have had to go back there to be picked up.
Wife and I are sailing 12/11/05 on Conquest. We will be driving from Austin to Alvin on Sat.12/10/05 (about 20 mi from Hobby) and staying the night at my wife's brother house then driving on in to Galveston on Sunday. We could have picked you up at Hobby and you could have riden in with us !!
WE took Galveston Limo. They pick up at the airport and take you to your hotel, if you arrive a day early that is. Our hotel then took us to the terminal at the time we scheduled when we checked in. This is a free service that I think most hotels, if not all participate in. Galveston limo then picked us up at the terminal when we arrived and off to the airport we went. It is 50.00 per person for round trip thru Galveston Limo. Well worth it!! We flew into Houston Hobby.
