The article is Princess Cruises in Texas. It is about Princess Cruise Line offering the largest Princess Ship Regal Princess for the Texas Home Port of Galveston.
The 142,229 gross ton cruise ship Regal Princess debuted in 2013.
The ship offers a lot of love for 3,560 guests.
Princess Cruises relocated Regal Princess to Texas on November 5, 2023 and held a special media event.
The ship featured a we love Texas sign at the front of the ship to celebrate the arrival in Texas.
Princess Cruises began sailing from Galveston, Texas 20 years ago. In celebration of the 20 year anniversary, Princess is having her largest ship, Regal Princess making Western Caribbean sailings in 2023/2024 winter season from this homeport.
The port of Galveston is seeing a lot of activity with recent renovations of the cruise port to accommodate modern cruise ships as well as to provide good guest experiences in the terminal buildings.
Many of the cruise lines are going big for Texas this year.
Carnival is featuring the newest ship, Carnival Jubilee as homeported from Texas. Carnival even has a feature at the front of the ship to honor the Texas homeport.
Royal Caribbean is offering Harmony of the Seas as well as several other ships. Harmony is an Oasis Class ship.
Everyone is going big on Galveston!
I sailed from Galveston many years ago and had a great memory of watching dolphins swim alongside the ship as it was leaving from the port.
