Homeport cruising is a great idea with one minor problem. Once you’ve sailed the handful of ships and itineraries from your home city, you’ve got to repeat a previous vacation or fly to another homeport for your next cruise. So it’s always a big deal when a ship makes a new home at one of the smaller ports.
Therefore, Texas residents should be excited about the newest ship to homeport in Galveston. This weekend, [% 15420 | | Royal Caribbean’s %] Voyager of the Seas arrived in Galveston, where it will sail seven-night itineraries to the Caribbean and Central America through April.
