Traveled with children

As we have done on many of our past cruises out of Galveston, we spent Saturday night at the Holiday Inn Express/Suites in Texas City, just a short drive to Galveston. The hotel is always clean and affordable, and you get free breakfast and free WiFi.

We parked with EZ-Cruise in Galveston, and we highly recommend them. Their staff is friendly, the buses are clean, and they are always on time and affordable!

Embarkation was fairly quick, though I noticed one small problem early on...there was some confusion by the staff near security as to whether or not wine was allowed on-board, and we saw several guests get their wine confiscated. There were some heated arguments and eventually a manager was brought in to confirm the policy that you can bring on two bottles of wine per cabin. We did just that and enjoyed them throughout the week!

Cabin Review

Junior Suite with Balcony

Cabin JS

Great walk-in closet, though the door sticks and you have to slam it to shut it, which creates a decent amount of noise.

We heard absolutely no hallway noise.

Balcony is larger than the normal balcony and is well equipped with three tables and a chair.

This cabin includes a sleeper sofa, which was perfect for my 4yr old son.

Tons of storage, a bathtub, lots of extra space and a great closet make this a perfect room for our family of three.
