Where can I take a cruise out of Texas or Louisiana?

Port of Houston
Cruising out of Texas just got better! The new Cruise Passenger Terminal in the Port of Houston opens this year–just a 21-mile drive away from Hobby International Airport. This will make getting to your cruise ship so much easier. Princess Cruises begins sailing from Port of Houston on Nov. 5, 2013 and Norwegian Cruise Line starts departures in 2014.

CruiseExperts.com can get you the best prices and any applicable special offers available to try out these new sailings. Check out the links below for sailing dates, prices and incentives.

Port of Galveston
Galveston, Texas will continue to be a popular cruise port because the city draws tourists based on its historic downtown, 32-miles of beaches, restaurants, activities and entertainment. Take a history lesson by watching The Great Storm movie, which is a dramatic film about the Great Storm of 1900 (shown daily at Pier 21 Theatre).

From the George Bush International Airport, it takes under an hour to take a shuttle to the cruise terminal, and even less from Hobby International.

TIP: We recommended you include the shuttle in with your cruise package to ensure the timeframe of travel is sufficient to get on the boat with as little worry as possible.

Port of New Orleans
The Port of New Orleans is located on the Mississippi river in one of the most popular ports to cruise from. Over 700,000 passengers embark on their vacation every year from New Orleans to ports in the Caribbean and Mexico.

From the New Orleans International Airport, although it is only 17 miles away, it takes approximately 45 minutes to drive to the cruise terminal. There are many shuttles from the airport to the cruise port for reasonable prices. Make it easier on yourself by asking your CruiseExperts.com agent to handle all of your travel plans including your airline, shuttles and hotel at the best prices and at no extra cost to you.
