This is the first time to cruise from this Port---usually a Florida depart. Surprisingly easy to get through and finally reach Royal Caribbean check in area. It was very efficient and friendly and probably easier than before since there were only two ships departing.

Another great cruise. This was our fourth cruise, third with Royal Caribbean. We didn’t sign up for many excursions because we wanted to do more on-board things. This cruise we were invited to enjoy “The Chef’s Table”. This was absolutely one of the best meals...More

We used the Galveston terminal parking option for a recent cruise and it was very easy and convenient for leaving the port. The cost is around $50 for 5 days which can be bought in advance to save $5. Some of the local hotels offer...More

We made reservations prior to arrival. The whole process was very smooth with little waiting for bus to and from cruise ship. Bus driver on return was exceptionally nice. Certainly will choose this place again on our next cruise out of Galveston.

Departing for a cruise so very limited time spent there. It is interesting looking but chaotic for embarking.

See what I did there? The staff wand attendants were friendly and helpful. We got the cars unloaded and were directed quickly to parking lots.

The embarkation went very smoothly. Thus was our first cruise. I paid for the parking on-line prior to arrival. We dropped our bags by the front and proceeded to Lot A. The parking lot is very close. They have a shuttle, but we opted to...More
