I'm frantically preparing for my quarterly 7 day cruise which I'll be embarking on this Sunday.
This time, I'm going to drive to Galveston on Saturday and stay at a classy Motel 6. Then, early Sunday I will drive my little car to the Galveston Park 'n' Cruise which is covered and cheaper parking than what the cruise lines offer. It's also directly across the street from the ship so you don't have to take a shuttle. Makes life easier and that's the way I like it.
I read online somewhere that you can start the boarding process at 10:30 AM which means I could be in my happy place by 11:30! It's like I'm a professional cruiser. I have been thinking of trying to get an *IT job on one of the Carnival ships. That'd be a cool way to spend the last 20 years of my life.
On this particular cruise, I'll be scuba diving in Cayman Islands and Cozumel. I'm not sure how many pictures I'll acquire, but I'll try. If you don't hear from me by the 24th of October it probably means I suffered an unfortunate accident or I finally got that dream IT job.
*IT stands for Information Technology. I'm not really an IT guy, but I think I could be if I wanted to.
