Does anyone know why the Princess line is no longer going to sail from Galveston after this Spring? I am so disappointed.

Have no idea but can only guess that it is either some financial matter with the port or the cruises from Galveston are not selling as well as from other ports.

I know the first year or so many, many Texans sailed on the Grand when she moved to Galveston but how many are now doing so? For the rest of us flying into Huston and then having to get to Galveston is expensive and quite a trip compared to FLL. Personally we found the port experience the worst of any we have sailed out of and have avoided any cruises from there since.

Future cruises:
Star Princess - Dec. 2007-Rome- TA
Crown Princess- May 2008 TA & Baltics
Pacific Princess-Nov. 2008-Holy Land & Egypt
Diamond Princess- Apr. 2009 Asia- Bangkok to Whittier
Past cruises:
Golden Princess-2007-Alaska
Sea Princess-2005 Canada/New England
Diamond Princess- 2005 Mexican Riviera
Star Princess- 2004 x2 Med. Venice to Barcelona/ Barcelona to Rome
Dawn Princess - 2004 x3- Southern Caribbean
Grand Princess- 2003 x2 W.Caribbean/ 2004 Panama
Sun Princess- 2003 Mexico
Tahitian Princess- 2003 Tahiti & Cook Islands
Royal Princess- 2003 x2- British Isles / Norwegian Fjords & Iceland
Island Princess- 2003 Panama Canal / 2007 Hawaii
Sky Princess- 2000 China & Orient
Sitmar's Fairwind - 1979 x2- Caribbean/Panama Canal
HAL-Amsterdam- 2004 Alaska

BJS, if many others feel like you, I think that's your answer.

I'm sorry that you all feel that way about Galveston. I have sailed out of there 4 times and have had no problems. We really enjoyed the Princess cruise, though, and would like to take another one soon.

Pretty sure its a financial thing. Carnival brought in the Conquest after Katerina and the smaller ships of the other lines sailing from Galveston have been selling much cheaper then before. RCCL is pulling their smaller ships out this winter and putting the Voyager instead. Maybe Princess doesn't have a spare large ship to put port? NCL is in its last season with the Dream out of Port Houston...
