Carnival Cruise Lines has long called Galveston its southwest cruise hub. Passengers can set sail on one of over 100 planned departures in the 2015-16 season.
Carnival recently added a third year-round ship in Galveston when Carnival Freedom launched a seven-day cruise schedule in February 2015, marking the first time that a cruise line has deployed three year-round ships in Texas.
Located an hour south from Downtown Houston, the Galveston Cruise Terminal has hosted Carnival Cruises since 2000 as well as other cruise lines since 1974.
