Ridiculously Cheap Cruise Fares from Galveston to Europe

When most people think of visiting Europe, they imagine taking a $2,000 flight from New York. But you can get there from little ol’ Galveston, with two weeks of room and board and a stop in the Bahamas, for less than $600.

You wouldn’t think of Galveston as a gateway to Europe. But many of the ships that sail from her port relocate during the summer months — most notably to the Mediterranean Sea.

So every year, usually during April or May, the ships making this trek offer a two-week cruise from Galveston to their European destination. These cruises offer all the fun and food of your typical Caribbean cruise, but there is a catch — they are only one-way trips.

Once you reach Europe, you will be free to do whatever you want, but you will need to make your own arrangements to return to the United States.

Because of that restriction, these cruises usually aren’t as popular. That allows you to get ridiculously cheap fares.

For example, the typical inside stateroom on a 7-night Royal Caribbean cruise from Galveston to Roatan, Belize City, and Cozumel, runs about $500 per person.

But Royal Caribbean is offering an inside stateroom for $549 per person for a 15-night transatlantic cruise. The itinerary takes you from Galveston to Nassau, Bahamas; Funchal, Portugal; Gibraltar, United Kingdom; Alicante, Spain; and ends in Barcelona, Spain.

Now, 15 nights is a long time to spend in an inside stateroom. Luckily, you can get a balcony room for just $929. Throw in that you get all the same cruise entertainment and food, and that’s a heck of a deal.

The bad news? You only get one chance for this route. The Royal Caribbean cruise departs Galveston on Sunday, April 21.

    We don’t believe this is possible. The European cruises occurred when ships were repositioned in the Spring. Now ships are staying in Galveston year-round.
