We cruised on Royal Caribbean ... wonderful! Embarking was a breeze. Leaving, however, was a nightmare. Two mega ships arrived at the same time, approximately 6,000 people and luggage and customs all at once. BOTH were receiving new passengers and luggage at the SAME time. Foot traffic inside and vehicle traffic outside were a huge bottleneck. This is not the... More

We took the Navigator of the Seas 7-day cruise out of Galveston, which calls in Roatan, Honduras and Belize City, finishes at Cozumel and returns to Galveston in this past September. The cruise ... which I was going to review as a 4 out of 5, I can't seem to review on TR, but I can review that maelstrom of... More

There was no option, in my family trip we were all adults... Galveston is not a city for tourism, the beach is awful, it is very very contaminated and there is not even one decent hotel. We had a good time because we were together as a family, but I would never go back if it is up to me.

Booked this wonderful 7 day western Caribbean on the Carnival Magic. This was our first time on the Magic and had high expectations. First of, the boarding experience out of Galveston TX is as good as it gets. From parking to ship and everything in-between was pretty good. Once on the ship – WOW! This thing is impressive! From the... More

This was our first cruise, and probably our last with Carnival. We went on the 7-day cruise to Honduras (Roatan), Belize, and Cozumel. The ship was new and beautiful, service was great, the ports were really fun, however the food was atrocious and the entertainment might have been even worse. When we first got on the ship we were super... More

We visited Galveston to go on a cruise with Royal Caribbean. I have cruised our of Fort Lauderdale and Port Canaveral. I guess I had higher expectations of Galveston. It is very industrial and trashy. It was not at all what I expected for a cruise port. Definitely not a place I would personally go back to. The disembarkation process... More

We visited Galveston for a week prior to cruising on the Navigator of the Seas. We visited Seawolf Park. The Tall Ship Elissa, The Offshore Rig museum, The Strand and a boat tour around the harbour. All that was very interesting and well run. Not so for Terminal 2. This terminal looks to be a warehouse built decades ago. It's... More

First I would like to say that I loved!!!! the actual cruise part of our trip, the on ship shopping on the other hand was not what I had expected. Was looking at purchasing a Bulova 63C107 Chronograph Watch they were pushing it for 4300.00 but would discount to 3800.00. The watch retails anywhere in the US for 1500.00. Go... More

Recently took the Carnival Magic cruise to Cozumel. Honduras and Belize from the Port of Galveston in June 2014. The cruise ship was in great condition. The kids loved camp carnival and the waterslide. My husband and I enjoyed the comedy shows and the food. We were able to board the ship around 11am and was in our room by... More
