Is anyone else going on the Nov 25, 01, sailing out of Galveston? Would love to talk to some people that are going and those that have been on this ship before. This is our first time to cruise and we are full of questions and excitement.
I am not going on this cruise, but I have been on the Rhapsody, and I have sailed out of Galveston. First of all, Galveston is a very dirty, ugly port. Be prepared that your ship will leave through the Gulf of Mexico which is a heavily traveled channel. Once you are clear of the gulf coast it gets much better. Of coarse the Carribean is wonderful. Arrive as early as possible because the cruise terminal is small and things get hectic very quickly. We went on the Norwegian Sea, which is much smaller then Rhapsody and the terminal was a zoo.
The ship itself, wonderful!!!! I sailed the Mexican Riviera on her in December of 99. I just recently sailed on the Celebrity Infintiy, and would have no problem going back on Rhapsody. Enjoy your cruise!
