We cruise only from S Texas. We have cruised out of Bayport twice and probably will cruise again. However, each time we cruise from Bayport there is a delay, weather, coast guard insp. immigration, etc. Terminal is small but very nice and new. Love the across the street parking but it is uncovered and more $$ than covered in Galveston.
The prices or good as or better than Carn/RCL. Mystery to me why some pan the food. It is better than my Carn or RCL cruises. Same for entertainment. Interior cabin has a better layout and is a little bigger (any extra is important in interior cabin). Crew and service was fine but not as good as RCL. Ship layout leaves a lot to be desired and seems a bit crowded. Smaller than Voyager Class with equivalent passenger load and crew. Look forward to sailing on Jewel. Lots of small complaints (no comp coffee in Int. café, narrow decks, a free dessert for B'Day/Anniv; as if we don't get enough desserts, etc) but all in all we I really like Princess and highly recommend them.
If you are going to cruise from Bayport here is what we need from Princess....vary the ports, go to any combination of Progresso, Costa Maya, Caymen, Key West and once a month do a turn around to Panama C. If you agree your help In convincing them would be appreciated. Good sailing to you where ever from and who ever with.
