We were looking for a semi economic Thanksgiving trip to warm weather. We are driving distance from Galveston and the cruise fair was not a lot more than 5 plane tickets so we ended up taking our first cruise as a family.
Overall the trip was okay. The first half day and full day at sea was very rough but we managed okay. At times some of the kids felt slightly nauseas and felt fine when we hung out in our room on deck 1. We ended up spending more time than anticipated in our room and it lived much larger than I expected with 5 of us in an ocean view room.
The food was hit and miss. Going in my expectations were not very high. We really liked the pizza, Guy’s burgers and the Mexican place. I would pay for those meals off of the ship. The scones and cream at tea time on sea days were amazing! Most of the rest of the food was equivalent to cafeteria food even in the MDR.
