We are booked on Splendour of the Seas on 4/18/03 out of Galveston. Has anyone departed out of Galveston? We are arriving a day earlier and staying at a hotel and was wondering how the transfers are handled. What is the procedure the day of the cruise (ie what time may we arrive at the port, how is the luggage handled). Do I purchase the transfers from Royal Caribbean or are there hotel shuttles? The hotel we are hoping to stay at is only 15 minutes from the port so I am assuming we can take a taxi. But how do we arrange return transfers? Any advice would be helpful.
We are also embrarking in Galvestion, with a one night pre-cruise stay. The hotel will
provide a shuttle to the pier, also, will permit free parking at the hotel until you return.
Check with the hotel on arrangements at debarkation. If they do not have a shuttle
available, all hotels are within a short taxi drive from the pier. You can place your cruise
tags on your luggage at the pier.
I needed tranfers from the airport and RCI is very expensive I am going to try Galvaston Limo service they are way cheaper and on another message board heard good things about them . http://www.galvestonlimousineservice.com/iah.html
So you might try to look them up . Good Luck
