I have only been processed by a handful of cruise ports in the United States and this one seems to be on par with the others. The staff is generally friendly and helpful and the layout for parking and drop-off is fairly easy to negotiate. FYI...there are several off-location parking lots that can save you money and one is close... More

Busy working port that handles a large amount of daily ship traffic. If you are failure with ports the will be a good time.

Had a cruise (terminal 1) on the Carnival Freedom July 25-August 1, 2015. We had the Faster to the Fun package and embarkation was so easy--we walked right through with no problems. Enjoyed the cruise overall, had no idea what we were going to encounter upon debarkation morning. I want to first say, we are US citizens with passports--had purchased... More

Very long wait to get on the ferry. Not a fan of all the people trying ot cut in line either. The police did a really good job of making them go to the end when they got caught though. Seeing the dolphins playing in the water was a nice treat.

The water seemed to me pretty murky and dirty. I did not get in it but overall my kids had had a good time. What I enjoyed was sitting on the rocks enjoying the breeze and the sound of the waves and the view.

My girlfriends and I went on a Caribbean cruise out of the Galveston Port. The proximity of this port to my hometown (Corpus Christi, TX) enables me and others to cruise more often.

The port of Galveston, I think is amazing. I parked at the 'Galveston Park and Cruise' ( it is RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET) from the... More

The port is small compared to the other ports to get onto cruise ships, which is fine. The parking was a little out of the way.
