:?: Since most of us know absolutely nothing about the area we will have to depend on our Texas CruiseMates to pick the hotel.

Thanks Phil & Liz
I will have to agree with ScurvyDog--
It sure is nice knowing people that are staying in the same hotel/area---

Phil & Liz,
Thanks for looking into this for us, keep checking to see if any of the Galveston hotels will offer the cruise package like Holiday Inn Superdome did. (I like Holiday Inn's anyway because I can get a good rate with priority club)

Oh ... and since you have so much time to investigate cruise options ... can you also check for the best transportation costs to Galveston from Houston airport. (I think the Phil & Liz mini van sounds like fun LOL LOL LOL )

Getting real excited about this, about 10 months to go! :)

Phil&Liz March 30th, 2009 06:39 PM

LOL Hmmm ok.

I kinda like the idea Beenie or Kat suggested which was Moody Gardens/Schlitterbahn combo. IIRC the post I made on Moody cruise package had the price abit higher that many like.

Liz will be at Moody in May so she can ask about a group price.

I would kinda need a rough number of rooms, tho. Wonder how many we have booked so far on this cruise? :?:

It is early so the numbers will only grow, but I suppose if we asked for a rate on a block of 30 rooms????

Maybe Kuki can advise us on dealings with hotels ?

Anyone know how many rooms we took at the HI in NOLA?

I still have plans of going to Galveston and just scout around. I thought I would wait until after all the Spring Breaks were over, though. The hotel managers may be a little hungrier, if they didn't have as good of season as they had hoped.

Ready, sounds good. Pick something good for Carole and I. We will most likely show up on the ninth. Thanks, Mike

We have stayed at the Beachfront Best Western three times, and have had free parking there during our cruise. Moody Gardens is a couple miles away and there is a Super Walmart only two blocks away for last minute shopping.

T C April 12th, 2009 06:45 PM

I like that link Phil & Liz ... I checked Holiday Inn Galveston on the beach ... I can get a rate of $85.00 !!! :D :D

Yeah Baby! :wink: .. it works for me!

I would love to do this cruise but I would need someone to room with me to share the room cost. If anyone is interested please email me and let me know at Cruisemate cruises are ALOT of fun. I really want to get more involved here.
