Default Port of Galveston

The Port of Galveston, TX - Official Website - Cruise Lines & Schedules has been "looking at / studying / working on " an expansion plan for the area anticipating additional ships and tourists for quite awhile.

Between George Mitchell and Tilman J. Fertitta, the battle for whose plan would be best and who gets what land goes on.

With the recent announcement of NCL & Princess going out of the Port of Houston Bayport Terminal, did POG literally miss the boat(s) ?

I see the Port of Houston is offering a large amount of cash to the cruiselines for their business. They will need it because the Bayport Terminal is in a hellhole part of the area. Surrounded by refineries and no points of amusement besides Kemah a few miles away. That is why it has been vacant all these years...

I heard that they were going to run a water taxi between Bayport and Kemah. Don't know why as yet, but I guess they have a long range plan.

I used to live about three miles from the terminal. A water taxi to Kemah would be about four miles. Not much to do for those who come in a day or two early.
