I traveled down to Galveston today to see both ships. The Carnival Vista was docked at cruise terminal #1 and the Carnival Freedom was docked at cruise terminal #2. The area outside the cruise terminal was crowded with debarking passengers, but not nearly as crowded as a normal cruise ship turnaround day. Some crew members could be seen in the area around the cruise terminals. It felt like a normal day even though there will be no embarking guests.
Here are some pictures from my visit down to Galveston:
