Meaning a third cruise terminal?

Was the second one ever officially signed or just was it just a memorandum of agreement?

They have had two terminals for at least 10 years, but I thnk there was a more recent plan to renovate/expand the terminal Royal is currently using.

Memorandum. Royal and Port  have been in agreement for long time , but City of Galveston stalled  everything , because they having  been holding hand out for their vested interest share.  

 

Terminal #2 For Royal  was completely remodeled and expanded greatly  in size when Liberty came in .

Definitely meaning a $100 million third terminal for Oasis Class size ships .

That would be great!  I hope the plan also includes improvements to nearby infrastructure too.

Give Galveston some more credit than that comment  . There are many associated  infrastructure improvements already completed and others  in progress .

Allure should be announced as sailing from Galveston starting in the fall of 2021 tomorrow or Wednesday


Thanks!  Also, is there any indication which ship will be doing the short cruises from Galveston beginning Summer/Fall 2021?

His comment is appropriate. Galveston’s infrastructure and traffic patterns can barely/can’t handle the smaller ships that sail from there now. We’ve sailed out of about 10 ports and never experienced anything like the disaster that is sailing from Galveston. It’s great that it is convenient to the middle of the country, but that’s about it. It’s rough.

I thought Adventure was leaving April 21, 2021 for Copenhagen ?  I’d read there will be an 18-day TA.  
 

Wondering which ship will replace her in Galveston after that for the short cruises.

Cruise critic should not be happy with his attitude and comments about Galveston in the past . Cruise Critic is in business to sell cruises .  Galveston has made great progress with improvements . Many more are coming .

You would hope that they would now have to improve things for fly in cruisers.

That would be nice, but the drive-in geographical area encompasses a huge population, so there may be little incentive to accommodate the fly-in cruiser.

80-90% of cruisers in Galveston drive in depending on days of  cruise .

Honestly, its not as populous as one might think. It's just the only game in town.

The drive in cruisers  will be supplying for four Carnival full time ships and two full Royal and more Disney with long term contracts . Norwegian wants in badly . Hobby airport is forty miles away . Many cruisers are staying near airports.
