Our CruiseMates group cruise has arrived!! See sticky above or click this link for Details:
http://www.cruisemates.com/articles/...nquest2009.cfm

Help me show our fellow CruiseMates how enjoyable it is to take a cruise out of Galveston. I can't wait for them to discover all the friendly people who will be onboard. Carnival Conquest. 17 January 2010. Great rates.

I must say that I have visited Texas and found the people to be very friendly.

Oh how I wish I could join all you Texans. I have a special love for that state. The problem with joining your cruise is I leave on the 24th of Jan. on the CCL Legend out of Tampa. I know you will have a great my hubby retires we plan on spending our winters in Texas. We are hoping to be there in 2011 if all goes as planned.

This would be a great first cruise for me. Hubby will be home, and hopefully the trial will be over.

Sure will keep this one in mind.

Texans are great!! They accept you even if you aren't. They did me.

It would be great if you could go Luanne. We would love to see you. I've thought about you often.

BTW-I'm guessing your the closest CruiseMate to me. I went through the Cove on the way south a few months ago. I usually don't go around the west side of Fort Hood, but it's a very pretty drive. In fact I'm going to Gatesville today it's very easy for me to get there.

Michael, can you and Sandra join us on this cruise? That would be great!

Also, I haven't heard from Sherry in a LONG time! I've e-mailed and called her, but no answer. I hope all is well with her.

I plan to book this cruise tomorrow, and I really don't care what the ports are. Just lying around in the sun and eating all day should be fun.

Paul, you mean there's more to cruising, than lying around in the sun and eating?

Yippy!

Gosh Darlene, I really hope their home was not destroyed from Ike. I need to check to find her brother's email and see if he can shed some light on their whereabouts...

Less clothes to pack for this cruise, since men don't have to wear a coat and tie on "elegant nights!" The women should be able to pack less also.

My best friend lives in Dayton and it would be a great chance to see her again. But I am booked on the Dream for Dec 09 so it is waaaaaaaay too close.
