Welcome to Houston!

I am going to assume you will coming into IAH on either a Saturday or a Sunday, so traffic will not be an issue.

When you rent the car, get them to direct you to Hwy 59 South.

1. Take Hwy 59 South to I-610 (commonly referred to as Loop 610)
2. Exit onto I-610 East and travel approx 11 mi.
3. At exit 30B merge onto TX 225 East toward Pasadena/LaPorte and travel about 14 mi.
4. Merge onto TX 146 South toward LaPorte and travel less than 1 mi.
5. Take exit toward Barbour's Cut Blvd.
6. Turn left on Barbour's Cut Blvd.

I have not been to the port area in quite a while, but I am sure there will be lots of signs to direct you to parking and the ship. I very familiar with the airport area and the other roads. The distance from the airport to the port is probably just under 40 miles, so time should not be an issue.

If I can be of further help, let me know. Happy cruising!
