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

We went to the port of Galveston, to board onto the ship Navigator of the Seas. We had a very long wait to board the ship, we probably spent 2-3 hours in line to get the sea pass. This sea pass allowed into our room and to charge things to our account, for on board purchases. We had a very... More

Easy travel to and from the cruise ships, great parking and ease of travel. No parking garages here, but the parking lots are clean and have always proven to be safe.

Last April was my wife and I's 3rd cruise on the Magic. This last time opted for the Spa Balcony. We really love the ship and hate to see her leave Galveston. This last April myself and 15 others in our Facebook Group were "randomly" selected to be searched at check in. I inquired who chose this "random" search and... More
