“Easy Port”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

I visited the port to visit one of cruise lines for the day. This is one of the few ports with great friendly staff. It only took minutes to board the cruise line and walking back was a breeze. Nice enviroment

“So easy!”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We were some of the first people on our cruise ship & when cruise was over we were off ship, thru customs & leaving in our car all within 25 minutes. Park across the street at Galveston Park n Cruise. Carry your bags to save time. It's so easy!!

“Don't take pictures near the port”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We had a very bad experience when we took or friends to see Galveston and decided to see the cruises. We drove to the port but there was not any cruise that day. We started taking some pictures of the trains right next to the port and the police stopped us outside in the sun for about 45 minutes and called backups to verify us, because they said we could not take pictures and did not believe we were tourists looking around. They treated us very bad for being a tourist area.

“Had a good time”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

This was my 1st cruise but my husbands' 4th! First of all, we prepaid gratuities thinking that was it. LOL, well be prepared to fork out MORE MONEY for anything that you purchase on the Ship.
We stayed on the Sport & Spa Deck (12) but only used the Spa on the last day. Our cabin and cabin Steward, Oka, was excellent! We of course had our favorite waiter in Northern Lights dining room, Erik & Richard, they ROCKED! Lots of things to do on the Ship and didn't explore it all until the 2nd half of the trip. Husband was pretty disappointed with the food, but there is alot of selection. I only had 1 issue with an employee that was at Guest Services, I found her to be extremely RUDE..This ship has so much to do for kids, adults and even senior citizens!
Husband was disappointed in Carnival so guess we will go to Royal Caribbean on our next voyage.

“Excellent time on Carnival Magic”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

We just went on the western carribean cruise in July on Carnival Magic out of Galveston. We had a 7 and 9 year old. We had a great time and we highly recommend it. Our kids enjoyed the comedians at night for the family show. My only complaint the whole week is several of the comedians only did a 30 minute set. The food was excellent. One night we paid an additional fee to eat in the steak restaurant and I don't know if I would recommend that since the food was just OK.
