Sail Date: Mar 2013
Cabin: Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

My wife and I recently took a cruise aboard the Mariner of the Seas from Galveston. We didn't find Galveston very interesting and will probably not take any future cruises from this port again. We didn't find Galveston an exciting cruise port town and we would recommend anyone plan a cruise out of Galveston.

If you must plan a trip to Galveston for a cruise, we recommend that you book a hotel at the Hilton Galveston. It is a modern, clean hotel that provides cruisers a free shuttle to the cruise port.

Upon arriving at the cruise port, embarkation went well and fast considering the long lines. We arrive at noon and by 1 p.m., we were on our ship. Royal Caribbean did a great job getting us on board quickly.

Cabin Review

Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin D3

Our balcony cabin was awesome. Plenty of room, lots of space for all your clothing and personal items, and a nice sitting area on your balcony.

Port Reviews


If you can take a cruise to Roatan, Belize and Cozumel from any other port than Galveston, do so.


The best tour in Roatan is zip lining.

Belize City

Shopping is the best at the port markets.
