This port is no frills but it gets the job done. The porter was nice and helpful with our bags on the way out. The local staff was friendly and helped everyone maneuver the lines. Going through customs on the way back was really slow...More

The port itself was easy to use. The parking and cruise boarding process were a bit tricky. We used Light House parking and were pleased.

Oh the sad little port of Galveston. Looks like the inside of a military barracks. Efficiency? none. There are two scheduled cruise ships that depart and arrive at the same time, one Carnival and on Royal Caribbean. This little port does not have the capacity...More

Went there to board a cruise ship. They were very efficient, handling the thousands who show up in cars, vans, taxis and busses. Workers are hard working, but pleasant. After the cruise, vans took us to the parking lots. They really hustled to get us...More

This was my second time cruising out of Galveston. The embarkation experience was much more efficient this time. From arriving at the port to getting on the ship was less than 30 minutes.

Our group recently sailed the Liberty of the Seas and had a great experience on the ship but horrible experience getting on and off the ship. Clearly this port is not capable of handling two large ships at the same time. We sat in traffic...More

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
