Caribbean Cruises from Houston, Texas

Houston’s updated its cruising port in recent years, offering one of the most advanced experiences for travelers at the Bayport Cruise Terminal.

Located on the western portion of Galveston Bay, it’s positioned ideally for exploring the Western Caribbean region, known for its beautiful beaches, ancient ruins, and stunning underwater landscape.

Cruise Lines

Currently, two cruise lines start their Caribbean trips from Houston: • Norwegian Cruise Lines • Princess Cruises

Both offer that large ocean liner contemporary experience, characterized by a great range of onboard activities, dining options for every taste, and several cabin configurations. Trips on both lines typically last seven nights at sea.


On board either cruise line, your ship may take one of two routes:

Western Caribbean Itineraries: Because of Houston’s proximity to the border, most departing ships take travelers along the Central American Coast line. After you sail across the sea, you’ll get to take in the beauty of the landscape, the bountiful resorts, and the large, vast ruins in Cozumel, Belize, Roatan, and Majahual. Longer itineraries – those lasting 10 days or more – don’t return home right away after taking you through the familiar sights. Instead, the trip continues its festive voyage down Central America, stopping in Honduras’ Bay Islands, Costa Rica, Panama, or Colombia. Or, if you’re looking for more of a typical Caribbean vacation, select an itinerary that takes you to the region’s quintessential island resorts, including Montego Bay in Jamaica and Grand Cayman.

East to West: Looking for a taste of the Eastern Caribbean? A handful of itineraries explore Key West and the Bahamas before jetting across the sea to Central America.
