Exploring Galveston Island is a natural addition to a cruise vacation. With major cruise lines offering multiple Caribbean 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, Great Storm Theater, the Ocean Star Oil Rig Museum, the interactive museum Pirates! Legends of the Gulf Coast, harbor boat dolphin tours, and more.

Also, a number of lodging accommodations on the Island offer parking and transfer packages with an overnight stay, so guests can leave their car at the hotel and catch a ride to the cruise ship terminal. It’s no wonder Lloyd’s Cruise International and Travel Weekly have rated the Port of Galveston as one of the nation’s top cruise ports. Don’t just pass through Galveston, experience its many pleasures!
