Our family sailed on an eastern Caribbean cruise from Galveston. We parked in one of many private parking sites across from the terminal. Price was same as official parking, but it was much more convenient. Just walk across street. Both the boarding and departure were very quick and uneventful. We have been on many cruises and galveston and Carnival were... 更多
We have cruised out of Galveston many times. The official Port parking has degraded significantly. We will use other private options in the future. After parking, everyone had to walk significant distances (some with bags) to get somewhere near a shuttle stop. For those with bags (not us), the shuttle had no area for bags so baggage was in seats... 更多
My wife and I have used the Port of Galveston parking lot for ten years and have always been impressed with the efficiency of the facility. Unfortunately that impression has changed drastically with our latest experience. We sailed on the Carnival Magic May 3rd, 2015. As I usually do, I dropped my wife and luggage off at the terminal and... 更多
Fastest debarkation ever from a cruise ship. Efficient and friendly. Was there after a 7 day Carnival Cruise (Magic) that is a huge ship. I thought the immigration/customs area was going to be a nightmare with so many on board. Went through quick and they had plenty of people to help with whatever anyone needed.
We cruised out of Terminal 1. We had to ask multiple people where to drop our bags and it was at the opposite end of the terminal. I asked two porters for help with our bags and they wouldn't help out. We went to the large sign that said bag drop, or something similar, stood there for a couple of... 更多
This was our first cruise (5 night/6 day) & we'll definitely be taking a cruise again, although next time we will entertain the option of a different cruise line. I spent a lot of time reading reviews and trying to understand exactly how a cruise works, which helped quite a bit, but I would say to anyone who's about to... 更多
Quick review - Great boat with lots to do and very clean. - Staff excellent we tipped over what the gratuity added charge required and they deserved it. - Comedy shows 5 stars. - Food excellent everywhere and the steak house if you pay the up charge is worth every penny of the extra $35 per person charge. Must eat... 更多
We used Pier 2 for our Royal Caribbean Cruise. We had no troubles at all. Lines moved fairly quickly for the number of people checking in. We were through all of them and on the ship in 40 minutes. We would do it again.
This was our first experience with the Port of Galveston and my first-ever cruise experience, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I thought the process went very smoothly and only encountered one employee who was a little less than peppy and friendly, but everyone else seemed very pleasant and willing to help you. We pre-paid for parking with... 更多
