Getting to the Celebration Cruise is a relatively straightforward affair. Below you will find details on hotel, air travel, and the cruise terminal itself. If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
The cruise doesn’t depart the port until 3:00 pm, but you will have an assigned check-in time as early as 12:00 pm. More importantly, you don’t want to be late. The ship won’t wait for you. So unless you live within a couple hours of Galveston, it makes sense to arrive no later than August 2nd, and stay the night.
More details coming soon. Including special rates.
Arriving by Air
While there are a number of airports in Houston (near Galveston), you’ll want to arrive at William P. Hobby Airport (HOU). It is just 55 minutes away from the cruise terminal, and George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is another option that is 80 minutes away. IAH might have better flight prices depending on your departure city.
