The itinerary

Located just an hour outside of downtown Houston, the port of Galveston is one of the fastest growing cruise ports in the world – it's now the fourth largest in the US, and largest outside of Florida. Before you head to your ship you can relax on Galveston's 50km of shoreline, grab some high-octane thrills at the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, or dig deeper into the city's past at one of several museums in the Strand District.

Day 2At Sea

It's rare to find such stunning natural beauty, glass-clear aquamarine seas, and vast marine life combined with top-flight visitor services and accommodations, and as a result Cozumel's devotees are legion. Divers sharing stories of lionfish and sharks sit table-to-table with families tanned from a day at the beach club, while Mexican couples spin and step to salsa music in the central plaza. There's plenty to explore off the beaten track – deserted, windswept beaches, wild and vibrant natural parks, and 600 miles of coral reef are all yours for the discovering. Just 19 km (12 miles) off the coast, Cozumel is 53 km (33 miles) long and 15 km (9 miles) wide, making it the country's third-largest island.

Day 4At Sea

Located just an hour outside of downtown Houston, the port of Galveston is one of the fastest growing cruise ports in the world – it's now the fourth largest in the US, and largest outside of Florida. Before you head to your ship you can relax on Galveston's 50km of shoreline, grab some high-octane thrills at the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, or dig deeper into the city's past at one of several museums in the Strand District.
