    Galveston Terminal Exit

    You will not be able to exit 25th . But on leaving terminal worse case , have to go back to 33rd then turn left on Harborside back to ParkNCruise . You may be able to turn earlier depending on Officers directing traffic and/or construction. All of ingress/egress is being rerouted for the better . It is No big deal, just a few minutes , either way . Just follow officers directions . Do not overthink , you are on vacation . A good Attitude is difference better an ordeal and adventure. Call ParknCruise there may be a back entrance off Harborside into parking lot to save you time .

    Question on Galveston Port

    As other said most likely you will be able to go to ship immediately. Unless there is a hold for circumstantial reason , you will be separated by status in a sitting rest area and be released accordingly .
  7. In our case, we have cruised a lot and are more informed now, and do not need CC for information as much. And also we are using other social media for various reasons much more than CC now .

    Fog in Galveston?

    The galveston.com/webcams are usually live , and you can watch ships arrive and depart all the way to Gulf . And to repeat , a resolution of differences between cruise lines and pilots in favor of cruise ships movement in fog has occurred since early last year . The pilots It’s been said not navigating fog and using fog politically to get pay raises and new engines in boats , at expense of cruise lines and cruisers . Reason for fog delays in past . This hopefully will not occur with resolution in future of course except under extreme circumstances as determined by pilots , not determined by cruise lines , not coast guard , not port of Galveston. Cruise lines have first priority in navigation in fog . .

    Fog in Galveston?

    Fog can occur, and if it’s 17 days in a year like above post says , what are chances of being on your day of cruise . Pilots who decide when to move ships in fog have been under fire from cruise lines . A resolution between cruise lines and pilots in favor of movement in fog has occurred since early last year . This of course except under extreme circumstances. Make your plans and enjoy your cruise . Besides it happens everywhere like Florida last couple of weeks .
  11. There is a reason you want a booking on a mega ship and repositioning . Logically you want it . Go and Enjoy the company of your partner . We have done many. Never have we wanted to get off at the end of those cruises . It’s precious quality time with the one you want to be with . Slow down and smell the roses . What could be better ?
  12. Well has Cruise Critic responded to site , thread or anyone. This has been going on for days ????
