Very helpful to handicap travelers. Pleasant employees. Very crowded and suggest you only arrive at designated check in times.

Parking for 7 days was only $65 and came with a shuttle each way. There is tons of stuff to do around the port (the railroad museum was great!) and everything is totally safe. 5 stars!

The port is more in the historic part of Galveston. It is in a cool older area. The port is easy to maneuver. It is air conditioned. The lines fairly quickly with our check-in only taking about 30 minutes. It is a good cruise port.

We took a shuttle from hotel to the port. The port seemed easy to get into and the porters were professional and friendly. The staff did a good job moving us through security, check in and on to the ship.

They have change some of the boarding processes and it seems to run a lot smoother. Staggered check in times and sign and sail cards once you board. Once we arrived at port we waited less than 15 minutes to board the ship.

Traveled on a Royal Caribbean ship from the port. Port was clean, easily accessible and very well kept. Embarkation went very smooth and we had no issues.

If you are driving in the day of the cruise, the parking adjacent to the cruise terminal mentioned by Angela is the easiest and works quite well. Follow your instructions to the ship and then they will direct you to the... More

Yeah there is off site parking that will shuttle you to the ship. But I'd park right at the Port. Like $10.00 a day
