I think I have taken my last cruise out of Galveston. I am a native Texan, but the bubba/hillbilly factor has gone from bad to intolerable. Fellow Texans, if you plan to cruise out of Galveston, here's a hint. Don't wear shorts to the dining room for dinner....even if they are "nice" shorts. Wear a shirt (and shoes!) when walking around anywhere on the public areas of the ship other than the pool deck or spa/workout area. Cover your face when you cough or sneeze. I just returned from a cruise yesterday, and while the ship and service were fantastic, the behavior of the guests was the worst I have ever seen. I've never seen anything like that when cruising from other ports. Galveston may be convenient, but it is simply not worth it. A cruise should be something special, not a casting call for Honey Boo Boo.
