I would fly in the night before, and then stay in Galveston. That way, any issues with traffic wouldn't affect your getting on board the next day.

We are cruising in May 2013 from Galveston, and we will be driving from San Antonio the day before . .

We are on the may 10th cruise and will probably stay at the Hotel Galvez the night before

I would sleep in Galveston. Pick a hotel that has a free shuttle to cruise ship!

That is where we will be staying in March. We are actually going to be there 2 days before the cruise. I hadn't looked into where to leave our car yet, but glad to know that we have an option to leave it at the hotel & get shuttled over. Our cruise is only 4 days, so not sure if that makes a difference or not.

A Day Early

We're flying into IAH on May 9th, DCL is taking us to the Hotel Galvez in Galveston, and then transporting us to the ship on the 10th. We've always arrived a day or, depending upon the port, more earlier than sailing.
