Everyone on the Dine Drink Travel team loves Galveston. A Galveston cruise is a great vacation, and it is even better when you spend some time on the island. We have plenty of reviews of the hotels, restaurants, parking, and attractions on the island. Look for more after our July 2019 cruise.
There is a temptation to stay on the mainland before your Galveston cruise. We get it. Hotels are cheaper just across the bridge, and many hotels in Galveston require a two night minimum. However, there are budget options like the Hampton Inn. We stayed there on Hilton points in 2015 and 2017. We are excited about staying in the Hotel Galvez in 2019. Follow us for all the details. We have two more cruises scheduled in 2020, and we will try to stay somewhere new to share those details with you.
Obviously, if you stay in Galveston for a couple of nights you will need something to do. The picture at the top of this page is of La King’s Confectionary. That. Place. Is. Amazing. We also enjoy touring the ships at the American Undersea Warfare Center. We have reviewed several of the restaurants, and we look forward to enjoying even more. Your Galveston cruise should absolutely include a stay in Galveston. At Galveston Cruise Reviews, we are committed to helping you find all the best spots.
