Last year I went on that cruise on Feb. 23. Leaving Galveston was okay. First day at sea was cold. As soon as we got close to Key West, it was beautiful and warm. Coming back the last day at sea, it was cold and raining. When we got back we found out there was an ice storm in Houston/Central Texas that week we were gone. But you'd never know about the bad weather when you're sailing a day out from Galveston.
