Why visit Galveston
without experiencing a
few of its pleasures?
Add a little more fun
to a vacation by exploring
Exploring Galveston Island is a natural addition
to a cruise vacation. Carnival Cruise Lines offers
4, 5 and 7-day getaways, while Royal Caribbean
offers 7-day seasonal cruises. Disney Cruise Lines offers 6, 7, and 8-night cruises, while Princess Cruise Lines also offers seasonal cruises. With four major
cruise lines offering multiple cruises
from Galveston, many vacationers enjoy
excursions on Galveston Island before or
after their voyage.
From the decks of the cruise ships, passengers
can easily see the charming Historic Downtown
District just one block from the cruise ship
terminals on Harborside Drive. The 36-block
district offers more than 100 shops, restaurants and galleries housed in beautiful Victorian
iron-front buildings. The area is also home
to the Texas Seaport Museum, 1877 Tall Ship
ELISSA and the Ocean Star Oil Rig Museum.
Don’t miss the Great Storm documentary film
shown every hour at Pier 21 Theatre above
Willie G’s restaurant.
Bargain shoppers will be pleased to discover that
many shops in the downtown district
offer discounts to cruise ship passengers
(simply present your cruise credentials as proof).
Tue, 21 May 2013 17:40:39 +0000 My, How Things Change Heard from friends who were onboard RCCL’s Voyager of the Seas a couple of weeks ago that the ship was a “construction zone” (that’s cruise-line speak for (“undergoing revitalization/enhancement”) LOL!
Tue, 21 May 2013 17:33:25 +0000 Unsung Heroes Heard from a friend who works at one of the cruise terminals that four passengers were denied boarding today due to “improper documentation.” Apparently they did not read Lorraine’s diatribe on why one should possess a passport – SHAME!
Tue, 21 May 2013 17:29:25 +0000 Do You Have a Morgue? A cruise buddy of Lorraine’s was told this story by a friend of hers who once worked at the cruise terminal – and swears it to be true.
Tue, 21 May 2013 17:23:22 +0000 No Cruise – You Lose! Did you know that if you arrive at a port of embarkation without proper documentation – even though you have checked-in online (required by most lines no later than six days prior to sail-date) and have a valid cruise ticket, you can be denied boarding? And – don’t look for a refund!
Mon, 22 Apr 2013 17:21:51 +0000 Speak Now, or Forever Hold Your Peace Think it’s not important to fill-out those “comment cards” placed in your room the day before debarkation – or – sent directly to your mail a few days later? Think again!
