Named after Spain's Count of Gálvez, Galveston was the capital of the former Republic of Texas and originated many of the state's firsts, including the first telephone, post office and naval base. Today, this serene island resort city draws visitors to its charming historic districts, which highlight the area's celebrated Victorian architecture, from elaborate homes to ornate churches and other prominent structures.
Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, Galveston also offers niche boutiques, restaurants and entertainment that's suitable for the whole family. But it's Galveston's close proximity to Houston-a mere 45 miles-that makes it a prime gateway for exploring the largest Texas city's finest attractions.
Disembarkation tours in Galveston may be pre-reserved through your personalizer. Luggage is stowed on the transportation during your disembarkation tour. Disembarkation tours end only at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport; therefore passengers who have post-cruise packages at local hotels must disembark at the airport. Passengers will then be responsible for their transportation to the hotel.
