It could really happen. Thanks to the hard work of many, the Port of Galveston could be the first cruise port in the United States to host cruise passengers since March 2020 when sailings were suspended because of COVID.

On May 25, the Galveston Wharves Board of Trustees, Galveston County Health District and Carnival Cruise Line completed a 40-page agreement that details processes and procedures for a return to safe sailing. Royal Caribbean International’s agreement was near completion on May 26.

Rodger Rees is Galveston Wharves port director and chief executive officer.
