Have a Great Cruise.... Be sure to give yourself enough time for your connections so you don't feel rushed.....

Bob,
Thanks. However, we are driving to the port, instead of flying. Galveston is only three hours away. We are planning on leaving early, just in case!

Where are you driving from?... We went to Galveston from Mississippi's coast & took the ferry ride...

Be ready to put on your gas mask to be protected from the cigarette smoke.

Have fun and don't forget your ID/cruise documents.

And bring a box of cigars and really stink the place up for POPPA_DADDYO.

Hi Happyinthesun,

As paddletoe53 said, have lots of one's for tipping! We didn't have enough on our last cruise.

If you have your ID, a credit card, and your clothes that's all you need !

Don't try to do everything. You'll be cruising again, so relax and save something for the next cruise !

Have a wonderful cruise and be sure to come back and tell us about it!

Hi Irish Shark,

!

Thanks, everyone, for all the words of wisdom. However, the comment about the gas mask makes me a little nervous. Is the smoking THAT bad on the Ecstasy?!?! When exposed to a lot of smoke, I usually get a sinus infection and I don't want that to happen!

Leave the gas mask home. The smoke is no better or worse as on any other ship.

You either left off a or a since it is obvious that you are joking me.

It is hit or miss. But I was on more cruises where smoking was a problem.
