Miller’s Seawall Grill

Miller’s Seawall Grill is located next to the Hotel Galvez in Galveston. It is a fantastic breakfast and lunch spot.

I also work hard to find new and interesting places to eat. When staying at the Hotel Galvez this year, we walked across the street to Miller’s Seawall Grill for breakfast. I am glad we did.

Galveston Oasis Class announcement delayed

Any upcoming Galveston Oasis Class announcement has been delayed. Pictured here is the Allure of the Seas, which has not yet been scheduled for any other port in late 2021.

On Tuesday, I wrote that only the Liberty of the Seas is scheduled in Galveston past April 2021. It looks like there will be more good news for Galveston cruisers. However, a Galveston Oasis class announcement has been delayed. Royal Caribbean should announce more details in early December.
