For the past two years, I’ve taken a Royal Caribbean cruise out of Galveston toward the end of August with a group of friends.

I highly recommend that cruise as a vacation — it offers a casino, unlimited food including pizza, and several pools and hot tubs — for a relatively good price. One of my excursions took me to Belize, where I went tubing in a pitch-dark cave and ate a termite.
