Hello. We're cruising our first time out of Galveston also. We're driving over the day before and staying in Spring, TX with my brother and his wife and driving down the hour and a half to Galveston also. Ive got some advice from previous cruisers concerning the parking situation and have booked online with a place there.

Due to the rules regarding the naming of commercial places on the message board, please email me and I'll give you the website.

Parking is secure but somewhat costly. It runs from $50.00 - $80.00 depending upon how many days you will be gone.

Check out this website- www.galveston.com

I think you can pretty much figure on $12.00 a day(maybe alittle less ) for parking, as a general rule.

Happy crusing;
David

We parked at ezcruiseparking http://www.ezcruiseparking.com/ and had no problems. It is gated, secure and shuttles. It is about 3 blocks from the terminal and it only cost 50.00 for the week.

We have also pre-booked EZ Cruise and have used them in the past and been very happy with their service.

We used EZ in 2004 and using them again next month. We booked online and saved I think it was $5.00 for doing so. We had a great experience our first time using them, so we did not hesitate booking with them again.
