3 Ways To Streamline Your Cruise Departure

Departing for Gulf cruises from Galveston, TX is one of the easiest and most accessible ways to do it, and it also provides you with unique opportunities for shopping, sightseeing, and more. If you're planning to fly in to Houston and leave from Galveston, there are not only a bunch of great things to do during the day or two before your cruise, there are also a lot of services that can make your vacation easier.

1. Chartered Transportation
Using a Galveston Island charter bus service to bring you from the airport to your accommodations or from your accommodations to the cruise departure means skipping the red tape and expense associated with vehicle rentals. After all, why bother filling out the rental agreement and insurance just to turn it in a day later and depart for the cruise?

2. Accessible Accommodations
If you look around, you'll have no trouble finding local hotels and B&B spots whose main business is making it easy for you to depart on your cruise. They provide everything from fast shuttle service to the waterfront to in-house restaurants that simplify your meal experience until you get on the ship. There's no reason to make planning any more complex than it needs to be when you can simplify your process and enjoy great accommodations at once.

3. Local Transportation
Of course, if you do want to get around Galveston, you'll need to know where to go for the best on-island transport. This is where your accommodation choices really help out, because most of the local hotels can make last-minute recommendations if you need help figuring out how to get to the shopping district or find the night life. If you don't want to be left at the whims of that night's demand, though, you can always look up the options and book ahead.
