Disney Cruise Line to sail more ships from Galveston
GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - Port officials say Galveston can expect to see double the number of Disney cruises sailing from the city on the Gulf of Mexico over the next five years.
The Port of Galveston announced Thursday that Disney Cruise Line will expand its offerings from the city to 26 cruises a year by 2023. The Galveston County Daily News reports that the agreement guarantees the company will operate out of Galveston for the next 10 years.
The deal comes a month after the port announced plans to develop a new $85 million cruise terminal with Miami-based Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
Port Director Rodger Rees says Disney cruises will get some of the open slots when the new terminal is completed in 2021. He says the company wanted to be first in line.
