Taking a Cruise out of Galveston? Info on some Common Ports of Call

Posted on January 29, 2015 by Jason Hayes in Our Blog

One of the best things about taking a cruise out of Galveston is that you can visit so many different ports of call. If you’re planning a voyage from the Port of Galveston soon, here are some highlights of different ports of call you may be able to experience during your journey.

Key West, Florida

A number of Galveston cruises stop here on their way to the Bahamas. During a visit here, stroll Duval Street and take in some shopping, or grab a bite to eat at Blue Heaven or Sloppy Joe’s. If you want to see a bit more of Key West, take the Conch Train Tour, which boards in close proximity to the dock, and takes around 90 minutes to complete.

Lucanyon Harbor, Freeport, Bahamas

This port of call is around a 10-minute drive from the city of Freeport. On a stop here, you may want to take in some entertainment, as Freeport has everything from live music to stand-up comedy. There are also a number of outdoor markets where you can purchase duty-free goods. UNEXSO’s Dolphin Experience will allow you to get up close to a real live dolphin, and is a must for anyone traveling with children.

Nassau, Bahamas

At this port of call, you can cool off at Atlantis Adventures, a water park that is filled with activities for people of all ages to enjoy. After relaxing a bit in the water park, you may decide to take a walk through some of the historical streets nearby and climb the Queen’s Staircase, a 65-step structure that was hand carved by slaves during the late 1700s.

Montego Bay, Jamaica

At this port of call, you can take in some authentic reggae music, and even do a little dancing if you would like. There are also a number of shops that sell locally made gifts such as straw hats that make perfect souvenirs. You could also take in a game of golf or simply enjoy strolling along the beach here before you head back out to sea.

These are but a few ports of call served by cruise liners that operate out of Galveston. You’ll enjoy visiting these stops even more when you know your vehicle is parked safely at our secure parking lot. Space fills up fast, so contact us right away to secure a reservation with EZ Cruise Parking.
