Cruise ships return to Galveston on Sunday

I just found this on a local TV station website. Very encouraging!

Cruise ships set to return to Galveston this weekend in hopes to welcome passengers this summer - ABC13 Houston

If anyone discovers what time they are due in port, I might head down and welcome them.

We went to see the ships come in and it was a nice sight.(we used to do this all the time). We ate at Fishermans wharf next to the terminal. Then we walked to the docked ships. An eerie sight and feeling. the only humans we saw was the ships yard birds painting the ship. No people hanging over the rails, no music, no food smell, no traffic. Like a ghost ship. Sad, we liked the noise of music and passengers getting on and off, happy sounds. Hope fully this will happen again.

Now now....don't be greedy......at least they're THERE!!!

They may be [2] of only [3] CCL ships sailing in July. Looks like CCL pulled the rest of the fleet from their booking engine for that month. Only the Vista, Breeze, and the Horizon out of Miami are still up.

Then again, maybe the rest are sold out. Got to stay positive.

Given the noti I got from NCL...we may have a new definition of "sold out"..now its "limited capacity."

You can still book a room for the sailing I am supposed to be on in July.. it's outrageously priced now. This is a 5 day to Mexico.. Surprised

WOW! and thats for the equivalent of a long weekend cruise...and not that far either...fortunately we're booked for 5 waaaay in advance, (assuming of course they all sail)....but we knew this was coming......

Welcome to the "new normal".

I looked for one in 2022 around the same time of year (if ours cancels) and it's back to a more "normal" price, maybe still a tad higher but nothing like those numbers up there.

Our 8-day cruise in July of 2019 was less than those prices above!
