We just came off the Galaxy last week (1-24/2-3) and spent a day pre- and post in Charlston. It is a great city to walk around in. The ship docks downtown and is a short walk to lots of interesting places. Go to the "market" , it's just a couple of blocks away and take a carraige ride ( about $17 each) for 1 1/2 hours. Want to go back soon.
From our 2/3/03 Galaxy cruise, we have created a cruise website with extensive photos of the ship and islands visited, and images of dinner menus, wine lists, bar lists, etc. We have a Charleston link and have compiled the largest dining links page in existance, which contains links to the individual restaurants having their menus and prices in most cases. We hope this helps you plan. This is the link:
