After a great time in Houston, we set out for Galveston at about 11am Sunday morning. The drive took about an hour, and then…
We parked our car (at Galveston Park N Cruise, $65 for a whole week, inside, and RIGHT across from the port. Like, RIGHT across from the port!) and then dropped off our luggage to be taken aboard the ship. Then, we stood in an insanely long line, outside, that I forgot to take pictures of. The crazy line moved pretty quickly though, and we were soon inside…and in another long line, that I couldn’t take pictures of. Then we went through metal detectors, and had our water shaken to make sure it wasn’t liquor (o_O). Then, we got in ANOTHER line, to get our Sail N Sign cards, and have our picture taken, so that they could verify who we were when we got on and off at ports. THEN we were able to get on the ship, and go to our room, which we either didn’t get a picture of, or lost the memory card or something. 🙁
Anyway, we washed up, changed, and started exploring the ship! The first night, there was a dance party for the kids, hosted by Camp Carnival, which is the program for kids 2-11. Izzy got down!
And won a medal for her awesome dancing:
Those kids were jamming! And y’all…they played the Casper slide! THAT’S what I should have gotten video of, lol!
Anyway, after that, we were all tired, so we were back to the room for the night:
Y’all, I have such a struggle getting Izzy to get into the bath tub….but she sees the ocean, and says “Swim, swim, help, mommy, wanna swim!” O_O
The next day was a sea day, and we took Izzy to Camp Carnival to be with her group (2-5yo) as soon as they opened. She barely had time to say bye to us once she saw those other kids, lol.
Then Byron and I went to explore the ship some: (And apparently didn’t notice the smudge on the camera lens for a while O_O)
Not pictured is Byron hurting his ankle at the basketball court while I was off checking out the (overpriced) spa 🙁
And soon is was time to go get ready for dinner, which was one of the Elegant nights!
We woke up in Cozumel the next day!
We dropped Izzy at Camp Carnival and went off to do our Beginners Snorkeling excursion! We stopped and got a crappy underwater disposable on the way.
Next up is Grand Cayman, and Jamaica!
