We currently do not have any specific designs or renderings for Cruise Terminal #3. However, the current estimation for the terminal's opening is Fall 2021. The new cruise terminal will be located on Pier #10 which is not too far down Harborside Drive from Galveston's Cruise Terminal #1 and #2. For those that are not familiar with Galveston, the Port of Galveston's current cruise terminals are located right next to each other. In order for a new cruise terminal to be constructed on Pier #10, the Port of Galveston says improvements to the pier bulkhead. Furthermore, parking, loading, staging, and other areas to facilitate the proper homeport operations of a cruise ship will be needed.
What cruise ship will Royal Caribbean move to Galveston?
We do not have this information yet, but more than likely the ship will be larger than the Liberty of the Seas. The Liberty of the Seas currently sails seven night cruises from Galveston year-round.
