Galveston Island is Texas’ top historic destination. Guests on cruises from Galveston can enjoy 32 miles of relaxing beaches, great seafood, tropical scenery, superb restaurants, marvelous downtown shopping, breathtaking Victorian architecture, numerous antique stores, incredible art galleries, plus tons of attractions, entertainment venues and world-class sportfishing.
Probably the most charming way to discover this historic city is by carriage. Take a carriage ride through the Victorian streets and let your driver take you back through history.
There aren’t many places where you can enjoy Gulf shrimp, Louisiana crawfish, Galveston Bay oysters, and soft-shell crabs while you watch the very ships that caught them at work. The seafood here is fresh and always delicious.
The official currency of the United States is the US dollar (USD).
