Before the 'Great Hurricane of 1900' Galveston was larger than NOLA. Had many firsts in business and development. The Strand area is very historically preserved and walking distance from ships. They have a big Victorian themed event there every year.
The Cruise Terminal (no.1) is very modern although in the shell of a very old building. They also have the largest terminal gangway in the world. Of course it would be in Texas.
When they bring the Oasis of the Seas they will probably do the same improvements to Terminal 2.
