Brilliant, staff, food, room service, were all brilliant. We felt at home as soon as we arrived on the ship, everything was explained simply and fully, and all the port visits went well. We loved it, and wouldn't hesitate to use Carnival again.

Very easy to purchase parking online. Bus service to and from is very quick, with pleasant drivers who are more than willing to help out. Parking is very secure.

There is an area by the hotel were you can take a short walk by the water. There are restaurants and downtown is walking distance. There are a lot of stores and restaurants is very clean and attractive.

Take the tine to learn things you are not exposed to regulary about the great ships at sea. See how our imports and exports are really getting in and out of the ports.

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.

One factor to consider is if you are on Carnival and have a preset boarding time, then you need to allow for the time of day you are driving to Galveston and the day of the week. We had a 12:30 boarding and the traffic... More

We had a rental car but as you said there is plenty of onsite parking. However depending where on the pier your ship docks it may be a long walk, so drop your luggage and any physically challenged folks by the ship first.
