The big question I have is....What is gonna be its "home port"?

Probably Nassau, like the rest of the Royal Caribbean International fleet.

Im hoping and praying that its gonna be Galveston!!We need a "mega ship" in Texas lol!!

That won't happen because the cost of registering a ship in the United States is prohibitive due to our government's requirement for U. S. crews.

By way of clarification of terminology, a ship's "home port" is its port of registry, painted below the ship's name on the stern, and has nothing whatsoever to do with the port(s) from which the ship actually operates. Unfortunately, some cruise writers have proved their ignorance by misusing this term in recent years.
