Hey Phil & Liz,

I checked the web site for Galveston Limousine Service from Hobby to Galveston round trip is only $60.00 and about an hour. This looks like a great deal!

Now just have to get from the hotel to the cruise terminal ...

For driving to the port and parking there, here is the place I always use.

http://www.ezcruiseparking.com/

They are a couple of blocks from the ship and very secure. I also pay extra for the cover, to keep the salt atmosphere off my vehicle.

We do, too !
The last time we were parked at their "other" lot on Church .
When the driver picking us up after the cruise asked us which lot we were in we said the one on Church. He was completely lost ! Had no clue the lot he drives folks to and from was on Church.

I offered to drive !
