I am considering the May Celebrity Galaxy cruise from Galveston to Rome as a way to minimize flying from home (Hawaii )with all the time zones and airport delays. Does anyone have feedback on this trip such as best shore excursions either on your own or Celebrity tours? Itinerary includes Key West, Nassau, Madeira, Azores, Gibraltar, and Nice. It is such a bargain compared to the Classic Mediterranean tours departing and ending in either Barcelona or Venice . Thinking of going on to Venice from Rome and flying back from there unless the cost of the one-way flight home would cancel out the bargain cruise. We haven't been on the Galaxy but love Celebrity since our Alaska cruise on Infinity. Any comparisons between the 2 ships? What about where to stay in Galveston before the cruise?
