Wet days when embarking/disembarking
Today is a wet day in Galveston and watching the Magic in port I cannot help but to feel sad for the people that have to endure this type of weather. I have trodded in this weather during embarkation/debarkation before and I absolutely dispise it. What a way to begin or end a wonderful cruise.

Yes a bummer. In reference to Galveston, we park at EZ Cruise so if it's too wet we ride the shuttle. Usually we would walk.

I'm always the optimist.... a rainy day on or at the ship is still better than a sunny day at work! Lol.

It poured down rain in Ft. Lauderdale when we got on the Freedom. It stopped for the cruise and was storming when we got off. I was feeling bad for the next set of cruisers myself. All that waiting and planning - you can only hope that it clears up during the cruise.

The Miami /Fll area has had a lot or rain this summer,and usually the friendly skies have not been so friendly recently. I do feel badly as I watch them sail away, but, the people on board are not shedding a tear, trust me.

After we were disembarked from the Epic in March...from the hospital window,I watched the skies open up,and, never stop the hard rain in St Thomas. I thought boy, the cruisers got robbed, that day.. Showers are easy, but sideways rain, is another story...;(

My first cruise was on the Conquest out of Galveston. It was a chilly, windy March day after a storm. I had not thought of the possibility and was wearing shorts. I about froze but it did not much matter. I know better now and go prepared but I'm with Chrissy....just knowing I'm getting on a ship is enough.

I was on the Voyager a few years ago on a 7-day Caribbean and it rained every day...every day. You never know.
