The additional charges will quickly add up on you so be prepared!  There wasn't an cruise shuttlebus from Hobby Airport so be prepared to pay at least $70 one-way.  Make sure you have money to tip the porters who load you luggage.  If you're bringing you personal wine/champagne be prepared to pay $15 per 750ml  or $30 per 1.75ml.  There's a $12.50 per person per day charge for grautuities that is charged which I'm sure isn't distributed equally amongst the crew who so well deserved it.  If your are physically challenged then you're going to have a tough time maneuvering on the tender boats that take you into 2 of the 3 ports.  The entertainment was definitely not packing a big punch.  The initial price for the cruise is great but when you start adding up all of the extra expenses than they far outweighed the cost of the cruise.  If you are a resident of the state of Texas and you're able to go at the last minute then you get the best deal available.  Otherwise, the rest of us are going to get nickeled and dimed to death!

Ship Tip

Thanks for at least having a room dedicated to cigar smokers! I wish that it could have had a TV installed in there.
