Curious, just how many Texans are out here on the boards?
You guys ever have any sort of Casual meet and greets to keep in touch? Before a cruise or what have you?
I am booked for the 3/12/06 out of galveston and see a few folks on the cruise are in the D/FW area. Maybe before the cruise we can have a big get together some where and say hello before we cruise or something.
I am part of a huge group that play on-line games and we tend to do this every 2 months or so, and found it a great way to keep the friendship rolling, or turn tail and run away
Interested in some input or maybe this is already happening?
I'm outsoide Houston Texas and as far as I know we haven't gotten together here...... I might be able to go meet Luanne and another from the board in Galveston before her cruise, I'd love to meet her - her posts are great! Funny and nice. Take care, Debbie
Born in Georgia, but live here. I don't consider myself a texan or anything else actually since I grew up military....but I do live here (for now).
I am near Galveston. I have met over 75 cruisers either on a ship or on land.
Would love to meet more! Not interested in a group cruise, but I wouldn't mind a land meeting!
well, y'all KNOW I am in Texas.... Lubbock, to be exact ! I left DFW 5 years ago... but whenever we need a specific item seems like we are always back in DFW to shop ! I would love to see a group cruise leave out of Galveston or maybe someday N'Orleans ! I would bend over backwards to join that group !!!!
I think it is a wonderful thread. Many states get together to meet and talk about cruising. getting Texans together, is a great idea. What about the lookers out there. Are you from Texas? What state are you from?
Hi Y'all! I also am here in Texas--an 11 year transplant. I live about 15 minutes from the Houston Cruise Terminal and 50 minutes from Galveston. I read all the time, and post some. Glad to see so many Texans on the site! DavidB, I think you are just jealous !
I am sailing on 11/10/05-but not from Galveston although I will return to Galveston. As my signature says, I am on the Grand Princess Transatlantic and can not wait!
Second times a charm! Escasty 10/07

David, it's not narrow minded to find out who is near you for a get together. I know of Florida get togethers and ones in California, etc. It gives you a chance to meet posters from your area and get to know them. Also if a group cruise for people living in Texas seems narrow minded, maybe you aren't concidering that people who live CLOSE to ports wont need airfare so it would be easier to get that group together. Why post something only to gripe?
We DO have a gripes board. I think that the way your mind is working is NARROW.
As for Who shot JR? The culprit turned out to Kristen Shepard (Mary Crosby), Sue Ellens sister (JR's sister in law) and when J.R. threatened to have her arrested she announced that she was carrying his illegitimate child.
Luanne - I have days like that too! So hoping we can meet before you sail! Don't worry about the ........ I hope the only reason he is posting is because it is Halloween and he is a goblin!
Are your kids going on this cruise? So glad I'm not waiting till Dec. 18 to go - the Dec 4 sailing seems tooo far away as it is. I thought about a New Years sailing as NCL has an 11 nighter but it was too long to wait! Too bad you aren't going with us! I'll have to tell you all about NCL and how it compares to Carnival.. Hope it comes close! Debbie
