I will be staying 2 days this time
I usually go in one day early, i have been to a lot of them before but flying out of the Midwest weather is always a factor.
I've sailed out of Galveston a couple of times on the Conquest. Living in Michigan, we ALWAYS go in a day early. The last time, we ended up staying a day after in Houston as a guy jumped off of his balcony 120 miles out of Galveston and we had to go back to look for him.
I live about 45 minutes away from Galveston so I don't get to spend time there like I did when I was a kid. I am always happy to hear that folks do stay and enjoy the island. Yikes! So sorry to hear about the jumper.
