Default Oh, I forgot to say this...

Since it was Mardi Gras the ship, the Conquest, had a HUGE party. They had karaeoke (spÉ) on Lido from 8-10 and then they took over the promenade on deck 5 and Lido from 10-midnight. We stayed until 10 and it was crazy!!! There was a large group from Louisiana (not hard to miss them since they all wore green shirts). I even got beads from one guy just fol holding the elevator..how sweet...Now my mom made a comment on how LARGE the beads (more like Xmas ornament size) were on this one man and he dashed off to his cabin and got one and gave em to my mom..she looked out of place consider you have to flash your boobs to get beads like that, but hey, that man must have thought she needed em!!!!

I`d go at that time of year again, but I`d fly in the day of the cruise if the port city celebrates Mardi Gras.....So let this be a warning, if they celebrate the hotel prices are higher, even for one star motels to astronomical for 3-5 star.

Are you signed up for the Bloggers 2 NOLA ?? We plan to have some Mardi Gras stuff with us to add to that bead collection.

I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed your review. I'm sorry that you had trouble with your hotel accommodations. Go ahead and plan your cruise for next year for the same time, but don't stay in Galveston the night before. There are a lot of nice hotels that are not on Galveston Island.

And I agree with Phil, c'mon along with us on the BLOG2NOLA cruise!
