I was not expecting the long lines to board on my first cruise, and even a bathroom break was impossible due to the worst smelling restroom I have ever experienced. I could not even stand in the room. I think they are remodeling, so hope...More

To be fair, I love Galveston Island, the port is really nice, but this is more about cruise terminal, it is chaotic and not really organized, getting in is not so bad, but debarking a cruise is horrible. I am also touching on the Carnival...More

The Port was great. Plenty of restaurants to eat at or just walk around with the family before getting on ship. Parking at the Port was so easy due to plenty of company offering parking at a reasonable price. We loved the Port.

Boarding went fast and was very efficient. Lots of porters to take luggage to the ship. Disembarkation was slow but then it always is. Took our bags off ourselves. This seems to be catching on with travelers because the line looped almost all the way...More

Poorly organized, not so friendly, not so clean. Two hours in line to disembark from cruise is not very efficient. Thirds time through this terminal and still hasn't improved.

Had a great cruise from port. I have been out of this port and the one and Louisiana and prefer this the most. The staff are great and people are friendly.

This structure is not unique to Lighthouses from this era or location.... but it is a nice visit when you are in the area with some extra time !

We hadn't cruised in over a decade so I wasn't sure what to expect. We parked with EZ Parking whose shuttles were great and their staff was polite and helpful. My husband dropped us off while he parked the car. My only complaint about the...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
