I did a cruise out of Galveston at the end of last February, a few weeks before you are traveling but close none the less. I flew into Houston and did the transportation provided by Royal Caribbean. (I did the transportation as well on my first cruise and had great success). This trip was decently lengthy, was in a tour coach style bus and about 1 hour and 30-45 minutes if I remember correctly. It was nice driving through and seeing Houston as I had never been to Texas before. Galveston was nothing impressive, and honestly I did not care for it at all. I don't know the word for it, but it was all shipping, fishing, industrial, and nothing scenic at all. The weather wasn't cold, but chilly, low 50's I think it was. When we boarded the ship I needed to have a sweatshirt up on the pool deck.
I hope this helps! I always like the transportation provided by RC to the pier, I didn't really care for Galveston, the town or the pier, but out of Galveston I had a terrific cruise to the caribbean!

What was the price for the transfer to the port?
