The #1 Website for Cruises from Galveston and Houston, Texas

Houston (Bayport) Cruise Terminal

Originally built in 2008, the Bayport Terminal has had a colorful history. For years it sat empty after being built, only seeing service when Hurricane Ike disrupted cruising from Galveston for a few weeks.

Then, a few years ago, the port has inked deals to begin dedicated service from Princess and Norwegian Cruise Lines — offering Texas cruisers even more options for dates and itineraries.

But after an initial run with the port, the cruise lines decided again renewing their service. Instead, they left the area. Now the Bayport Terminal sits empty, despite being a relatively new facility with on-site parking and a convenient drive from Houston.
