Default Houston & Galveston Docks

I have read the internet and some news reports on the status of the Galveston and Houston docks. Could someone who has been there please give me an update? Are all facilties in Galveston back up and running and what is the real status on cruise ships going out of Houston. Can you tell me about parking at both locations?--Thanks

Galveston is the same as pre-Ike. You park about 1/2 mile away and they shuttle you to the pier. Don't recall the prices because our DD lives there and always drops us off. You do need to drop your luggage at the pier before going to the parking lot as the shuttle does not allow luggage onn the bus.

Houston does not currently have any cruise ships sailing from there even though their new pier is complete and they did use it for a short period of time after Ike while Galveston was under repair. Certainly wish they'd open and NCl would return.

EZ Cruise does load your baggage on their bus.
