GENERAL INFORMATION *****************************************************************************************************

Cruise Park is a Park & Walk lot. We do not operate a shuttle to or from the cruise terminal. Presently, golf carts previously offered for transportation assist at the crosswalk will not be available, going or coming. Cruise Lines allow passengers and baggage to be dropped off and picked up at the cruise terminal.

Look at the Google map at the top. The "satellite view" gives an excellent orientation of the area.

The easiest way to handle baggage and accommodate other people in your party is to go directly to the terminal and drop off baggage. It usually takes only a few minutes. Per the cruise line regulations. all large size baggage must be checked before boarding.

Thanks for considering Cruise Park!

Galveston's Cruise Ship Terminals operate almost in the same manner as many Airport Terminals. Passengers are screened and baggage x-rayed.

(Recommended action before parking) You can drop-off passengers and larger size baggage at the terminal. Just drive to the terminal where your ship is docked. The cruise lines have porters for your convenience, if needed..

Over-size baggage must be checked at "baggage." Only smaller sized items will fit thru the x-ray machine at passenger screening. Also, your passengers may go to security check-in while you park. It won't take long to rejoin your party after parking.

The cruise terminal is a relatively small facility and easily navigated. Basically, no one becomes "lost."


"If a Saturday or Sunday is half red and half green (in that order) on the booking calendar, you can reserve parking for the week that is green. If the Sunday is totally red, parking is not available for that date."

If you are cruising back to back, the reservations will require a separate reservation for each week.
