3 cruise ships. Kind of tells you I was in a tourist trap but it was still fun. We ignored most of the merchants.
The cruise left from scenic Galveston, TX and sailed for one day to our first destination and from then on it was about .5 days to each other destination and then one day to get back. It was really cool. All the food was amazing. For breakfast there was these huge spreads of anything you could possibly want. Lunch was usually average though. For dinner you could just grab pizza or something, or, you could eat in this luxurious giant dining room. Everyone was wearing suits, it was the best service I've ever had. On the boat they had a couple of pools, some hottubs, a rock climbing wall, and a ton of fun little deck games. We met some people on the boat that were so nice to us they bought us drinks all night. A bad thing happened though once, not to us fortuanately, one of the hottubs leaked into someone's room and flooded it while they were sleeping. So, the cruise line bumped them up to a first class cabin and comped them a bunch of stuff during the rest of the trip. If anyone is thinking of going on a cruise do it. If you're not thinking of going on a cruise start thinking about it. It's an awesome experience and you will never forget it. Bring a camera.
