Cruises From Galveston, TX

Cruises From Galveston, TX
Located on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, Galveston, Texas is a newer venue for those looking to take a cruise. Carnival was the first of the big cruise lines to call Galveston home back in 2000. Since then, Royal Caribbean has joined Carnival, offering cruises to various destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean.

Western Caribbean

Both Carnival with their Ecstasy cruise line and Royal Caribbean with its Voyager of the Seas offers a variety of cruise packages that explore the Western Caribbean, with popular ports of call including Cozumel, Mexico, Progreso on the Yucatan Peninsula, Grand Cayman and Jamaica. Royal Caribbean also offers trips that stop through Honduras and Belize. The cruises vary in length, with popular four, five and seven-day voyages available.

Eastern Caribbean

If you're looking to experience the Eastern Caribbean, board a Carnival Conquest Cruise Ship, otherwise known as the Fun Ship. The cruise line's Eastern Caribbean cruise includes stops in popular destinations in the Bahamas, like Naussau and Freeport, with a stop in Key West as well. The Eastern Caribbean cruise is only offered in a seven-day package and runs from mid-May through the end of January.

Exotic Destinations

While it's most common to cruise from Galveston to ports of call in the Caribbean, you can still find more exotic destinations thanks to Royal Caribbean and their 14-night Transatlantic Cruise. You'll sail on the Voyager of the Seas to ports of call in Nassau, Bahamas, Ponta Delgada, Azores, Malaga, Spain, Cartagena, Spain and finally, Barcelona.
