The standard itinerary for Allure will be a seven-night Western Caribbean cruise to Roatan, Honduras; Puerto Costa Maya, Mexico; and Cozumel, Mexico, with the first departure scheduled for November 13th, 2022.
The Allure of the Seas is packed with onboard activities and dining options, plus a variety of cabin types, including RCL’s Royal Suites Class accommodations.
Galveston is Texas’s cruise port. And most of the cruises from this port city on the Gulf of Mexico take lucky passengers to the western Caribbean, Mexico and Central America.
Yes, You Can Cruise From Galveston to New York
But when the prime Texas cruise season comes to an end (around the end of April), the cruise companies move their ships to other departure ports. For Royal Caribbean’s ship Adventure Of The Seas that “other departure port” is New York – more accurately, Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey, within view of the Statue of Liberty.
Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd has signed a long-term contract with the Port of Galveston for the construction of a new $100 million cruise terminal.
The new two-story terminal will be constructed at Pier 10 in the eastern portion of the Port of Galveston. Construction is expected to begin in April of 2020, with anticipated completion in fall of 2021.
RCL will build the terminal, then lease it from the Port of Galveston for an intial 20 year term with four 10-year extension options following that.
The new terminal will be approximately 170,000 square feet in size. The terminal will meet LEED sustainability standards, will employ state-of-the-art technology such as mobile check in and facial recognition, and will have the capacity to accommodate Royal Caribbean’s largest ships.
Following completion of the new terminal, Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas will sail from Galveston.
