Hi, we are 4 aussies (with 4 suitcases) needing to get from the Galveston cruise port to Houston GB in order to get a flight out early afternoon for New Orleans. Can anyone tell me the most reliable and cheapest way to do this? We can catch the shuttle bus organised by Carnival but that would mean we can't get on a plane until 4:30pm as Carnival says not to book a flight before 1:30pm and that is the next flight out after 1:30pm. If we could be in Houston ready to catch the 1:00pm plane that would be fantastic. Any ideas please friendly people? How long will it take to get from Galveston to Houston? Any solution MUST be reliable as there is no point in trying to beat the shuttle if the organised transfer doesn't show. Thanks heaps.
