That ship is the only other we have sailed on besides Carnival.
That was in 3/99 that we did a 10 day Southern Carribean.
We really enjoyed the ship, loved our balcony and the service
was great. Lucky people in Houston.

Now that's an interesting itinerary! This is a great idea to open up the Texas market more. Also, it's a much shorter flight for those of us on the West Coast. I just wish they would do that route in June.

I'm booked on this cruise for the April 28, 2003 sailing. Luckily I also have a cruise booked in Sept. 2002 aboard Carnival Celebration, since 2003 is a long way away! I'm so excited about there being more to choose from for cruising from Houston and/or Galveston. Since I no longer fly, this gives me a lot more choices. By the end of this year, there will be 5 ships departing Houston/Galveston.

I might try that one, I'm looking for a 10 or 11 day one that includes Key West and was thinking Celebrity out of Ft. L but Houston would be a nice change! I might do it! Thanks for the tip! Sue

I know of three ships cruising out of Galveston/Houston...Splendor, Rhapsody and Carnival's Celebration(I think). What are the other 2 ships? I've been on the new ships and I don't know if I want to go on an older ship. I guess I'm spoiled. But if I can save $200 on airfare I might try a ship out of Galveston.

We are booked on the Splendour 11 day cruise next January. The great thing its that we won't have to fly.

Royal Olympic is begining year round 7 day cruises from Houston in the next month. I don't remember the itinerary, but it is a bit different than the other ships in this market due to the speed of the ship (28 knots). There will be a second Carnival ship sailing out of Galveston later this year.
