The two big cruise lines that operate from Galveston expect to be back on their regular schedule by the weekend.
The other major cruise line with a ship based in Galveston TX, Royal Caribbean, also announced it was gearing up for return to normal operations during the weekend. The single Galveston-based ship of the line, the 3,634-guest Liberty of the Seas, is expected to arrive back in the port just in time for her scheduled Sunday departure.
Port of Galveston had been closed since Hurricane Harvey began pummeling the coast of Texas last Friday, forcing the cruise lines to cancel all of this week's sailings.
