About Galveston, Texas

Galveston, Texas offers everything from entertainment to shopping, to over 32 miles of Gulf Coast beaches. Galveston's festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for islanders and tourists alike. Arts and entertainment is as much a part of the area's history as its Victorian architecture, and Galveston sparkles at night, from theater, music and dance, to reggae, rock and country.

Be patient. No matter how efficient the process is, when you deal with thousands of people there will be delays.

I love Galveston. There is so much to do and see nearby. Sure the water isn't crystal clear like it is in Cozumel, but the beaches are pretty cool. Can't wait to go back.

Speedy check in. Great balcony room! Crew was very friendly. Casino has a few smoke free machines. Free drinks, 15 a day! After you reach 500 pts. About $500 fyi

Go see the short film at the Pier 22 about the historical flood of 1900 and pirate Jean Lafitte. Each is only about 20min but very interesting! Beautiful old homes in the city and inviting Seawall beaches.

Five stars for all of the workers for the port! Every single person we encountered was very polite and helpful, from helping us park, guiding us where to go next, to checking us in. For some reason we did not have the boarding pass with bar code & there was someone there to help & print it (them) out for us. That was really cool!

We took an Uber to Galveston from Hobby. We stayed at Comfort Inn, the rooms were nice, friendly staff, nice breakfast. Getting around the town was a bit challenging. There is no Uber to Galveston, so we took a Get Me to the pier. He responded right away and it was only $8. The pier is fun, scary fast rollercoaster, but a little pricey. The food at Bubba Gumps was terrible as was the service. We couldn't get another Get Me to take us back to the hotel so we had to take a $22 taxi. The same Get Me driver drove us to the pier the next morning with no problem. A lot of traffic which was to be expected. We arrived at 10:15am and were on the ship by 11:30am. As long as you have patience, expect long lines, bring a snack and water and it will all work out. I would sail out of Galveston again.
