Within the past month, both Norwegian Cruise Line and Princess Cruises left the Port of Houston for good, leaving cruisers looking to sail out of Texas fewer cruise line options and just one port – Galveston. But not to worry, because Carnival Cruise Line made sure to place three of its best ships there: Carnival Breeze, Carnival Freedom, and Carnival Liberty, and here are eight reasons why you should book a cruise on Carnival Liberty.
1. The Itineraries
Carnival Liberty took the place of Carnival Triumph (now homeported in New Orleans), so it too will sail 4- and 5-day sailings. These itineraries are perfect for first-timers looking to dip their feet in the cruising waters, or for those who can’t take an entire week off of work or school. These shorter cruises are also more budget-friendly, allowing you to spend more onboard and in port.
