Default Galveston

Any advice on getting to this port? I assume most people fly into Houston. Do you take the Carnival transfer or taxi?

Are you flying in the day of the cruise or the day before? If you're flying in the same day I'd recommend the Carnival transfer. If you're coming in earlier and you want to spend some time in Galveston, I'd suggest a shuttle from the airport to Galveston.

We usually fly in late the day before and stay at an airport hotel at Houston Hobby, using the hotel shuttle from the airport to the hotel. The next day we take the hotel shuttle back to the airport and take the Carnival transfer bus to Galveston.
Have a wonderful cruise!

My suggestion .If you fly into Hobby and have a free day book a room at the Kemah Boardwalk Hotel and go from there to Galveston.
