Offered year-round, Galveston cruises typically range from four to eight days in length and call on ports in the Bahamas, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America. There may also be one or more transatlantic cruises annually, sailing between Galveston and a European port.

The Galveston cruise pier is accessible to guests arriving by car or air and is located approximately one hour and a half by car from Bush Intercontinental Airport and approximately forty-five minutes from Houston Hobby Airport.

Cruising can be an inexpensive way to visit multiple destinations around the world. Every ship travels from port to port, without the hassle and discomfort of airline travel. They also offer excursion options for vacationers who can take tours and see the sights of their port destinations safely and easily.

The cruise line you choose will depend on the type of vacation you are taking. Many cruises are family friendly, while others cater to an adults-only crowd. Since cruises are all inclusive and the price per night is usually less than many hotel accommodations, it is hard to beat the value of a cruise vacation.
