Oasis class ship to Galveston 2020?

Saw in a Galveston travel article that RCL signed an agreement with port authority to upgrade terminals to support an oasis class ship. Anyone else seen other sources on this? I know Liberty goes to dry dock in the spring of 2020 so an Oasis class would be a great ship to carry the load.

The last Scuttlebut i heard from RCI Headquarters was an Oasis AND a Project Icon ship to Galveston in 2022(I might have a mole).

Icon due to the availability of the LNG facilities in close proximity to the cruise port

I took a ride on the ferry boat near the new Galveston terminal. There's some dredging where they turn the ships and a few cranes near where I expect the new terminal will be built. I don't know if this is related to the new terminal or not but it looks promising

Like that "rumor"!

On channel 13 ktrk houston they had a news flash the allure of the seas coming to galveston after dry dock and showed a drawing of the new terminal being built on terminal 10

Well this is the second time Ive tried to post, so if it comes up 2x I apologize.

I appreciate you keeping us informed of all this. GOOGLING the ship gets you all kinds of links to not only the ship, but terminal construction as well. If theres such a thing as a ship being TOO big, those OASIS Class monsters are it. I don't care how many times you've cruised, and learned to make reservations and do crowd avoidance...with 7,000 people on board, its got to be noisy, crowded, and lines everywhere. I like the larger ones myself, but 4-5K is it for me, maximum.

Thanks again for the update.

I checked out with CoCoMango travel agency, they offer a cruise to Galveston!

Nice.

Great news! Allure is a fantastic ship. [quote=cruisellama

The RCL site has published Allure cruises out of Galveston, looks like starting around Nov 2021.
