New Royal Caribbean terminal coming to Galveston

Postby itsjrd1964 » 05 Dec 2018 22:31

Galveston partners with Royal Caribbean on new $85 million cruise ship terminal

This will be Galveston's third cruise-ship dock facility. It is projected to open in 3 years. Carnival and Disney Cruises already sail from Galveston. The article reports traffic is up 15% there over last year's cruise bookings. Galveston is reportedly the U.S.'s fourth busiest port for cruise originations.

Sweet.

The more tourist pulling deals like that coming to Galveston increase the viability of an HSR extension. Just like Fort Worth, though, I think a Galveston HSR Station would need the boost from the San Antonio-Austin leg of the triangle to generate enough foot traffic.

Galveston has the island life advantage over Corpus Christi, but Corpus has more appealing beaches.
