We woke up around 5am and decided to get up as we were getting closer to Galveston. We were docked by 6:30ish. We decided to get ready and head down to where the people self - disembarking were meeting up. We were off the boat by 7:30 and in the car by 8 AM. We made it to my parents in Kingwood after a quick potty and breakfast stop by 10am.
We then decided to hit the road for Austin and made it home by 1:30. We even joked we could have went to work if we really wanted to.
We unpacked the luggage and checked email and decided to go grocery shopping to get some snacks before the big game would be on at 5. We made it to the grocery store but it was way too packed so we decided to put it off for monday. We picked up KFC for dinner and got a pack of the hot wings. yummmy.
Before we went on the cruise we had been doing some research on what we wanted to do next cruise wise. I found that with the new ship to us, Mariner of the Seas came to Galveston, there would be a rare 9 night cruise out of Galveston. We decided then and there we would book it while on this cruise so we could get the discount on deposit and get a $100 onboard credit for the next cruise.
We booked it while on the cruise and now have this cruise to look forward to. It sets sail on November 11th, 2011 and it goes to: Belize, Roatan, Honduras, Cozumel and Grand Cayman. We will have four sea days as well so we are looking forward to it.
Up next, slideshow of the cruise.
