Shipping to Port Galveston

I read the section about being able to send a package to Florida for cruises, is this option available for Galveston?

I know there were a couple of threads about this recently. Maybe do a search for "Galveston mail" would work?

While I am far from an expert and have not actually done this yet, I did phone DCL and ask for the information. I will be shipping a box to port next week for the Jan. 4 sailing of the Magic. Keep in mind I am from Canada and that is why I am shipping so early. I had looked in the information on these boards and found the Port Canaveral information, so when I called I did ask on size restrictions. I was told there is nothing concrete, I would think you should use common sense. I am shipping a box that is 18"x18"x18" and under 20 lbs. The box must have a list of items posted on the side and not contain any restricted items. For restricted items, I used the PC info on these boards. You must also have the ship name, your name, sail date, stateroom # (if you have one) on your box in at least one spot. Ship to: Intercruises Shoreside and Port Services, 2109 Post Office Street, #318 Galveston, TX 77550. I was told to send it so that it arrived about a week before the cruise. It needs to be there prior to the Friday before the cruise.
