Loved viewing the cruise ships, cargo ships and a ship of bygone days at the port. Enjoyed cruising the waters on the Bay Watch where we saw dolphins as they followed the shrimp boats in hopes of dinner. Great dining at Olympia located nearby.

Easy in and out of terminal. Cruisepark was a family operation that really caters to their customers. Right across street from Royal Caribbean.

My family and I used the Port of Galveston for a family cruise on the Liberty of the Seas in May of 2015. My family have been on 6 cruises in different ports and the Port of Galveston was not one of our families favorite ports to cruise out of. There was nothing special about the port that I could...

Went for Spring Break. Had plenty to do. Plenty to see. Couldn't enjoy the beach so much the wind and waves were way up but it was still a great visit.

nice port paid parking nearby, but can get crowed and there are not any stores nearby but little price to pay for going on a great cruise,

Plenty of things to do, never go hungry, service was good. The stop in Cozumel was great, not so much in Progreso. The cruise director Cory made... More

The porters at 2... More

Went on a 7 day Carnival Breeze cruise, loved every minute!! We had 14 in our party and each spent the day exploring, then shared their day over dinner with all of us. It was GREAT!
