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).
