Back in October I was lucky enough to get a great rate on a Disney cruise sailing out of a new port, Galveston Texas. This was great for us because it was a three hour shorter drive than driving to Port Canaveral, and I had a lot of people asking about the new cruise and port. Instead of doing a day by day report, I just decided to do some photos of the trip for you in 2-3 installments, with a few quick captions/explanations. If you have questions about Disney Cruise line cruises please contact me (or any other cruise line!)
We sailed on the Disney Magic, which is one of the classic (smaller and older) ships. I have sailed on her twice before, and while she doesn’t have the newness or technology of the new ships the Dream and the Fantasy, it is much less crowded and has a more intimate feeling.
Disney did a great job of sprucing up the port in Galveston by adding signs, etc. All in the waiting areas before you board the ship.
