Go to icruise.com and search based on departure port. You'll have to know what month you want to sail but there will be the listings of the ships leaving from there.

Regards,
Thomas

I believe in the fall of 2003 NCL Sea will be sailing from Houston. This could be another option for you.

We have taken the Rhapsody out of Galveston twice and loved it. Another RCCL ship is doing 10 and 11 day trips to Panama Canal I believe.

Both are newer and larger ships than Carnival offers here.

We took our first cruise on the Celebration last year and had a wonderful time. The ship had a perpulsion (sp?) problem but we still enjoyed ourselves. The cruew were all terrific. We are cruising in May and chose the Celebration again after hearing it is currently in dry dock being completely overhauled and redecorated. We liked the itenerary on the Celebration better than the Jubilee because of the longer time in Cozumel than Playa Del Carmen/Calica. Also, FYI, we stayed at the Victorian Condo/Hotel the night before. They took us to the pier and let us park our car in their lot while we were gone. Good luck booking your cruise.
