7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 30, 2006
Ship: Grand Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 9 years ago
Embarkation and diembarkation process was horrible. We arrived into Houston on an early morning flight (10:00AM). Did not end up boarding the ship until approximately 5:30PM. We were one of the first to arrive and one of the very last to board. We were sent to an alternate place (Moody Gardens) for the registration process. It was not well organized at all. We were told to stay on the bus. Meanwhile buses that were coming in behind ours were pulling in and everyone on those buses got to go in and get registered. It was very very disorganized. They served a light snack but only had enough for the very first people who arrived.

Some shopping. You either have to take a small airplane $50 round trip pp or a water taxi to some of the cays for the nice beaches with clear water.

Lots of shopping here. We were taken to a not so nice beach. There was a $10 charge that you must spend in food or drink which wasn't so bad but the beach wasn't great and people were packed in like sardines. Way overcrowded. There were also tons of sand fleas everywhere. They were landind onto us and in our drinks and food too.
