Houston Bayport Cruise Terminal secures two new cruise ship contracts
The only time cruise ships have called on the Bayport Cruise Terminal was for several weeks in 2008 after Hurricane Ike damaged the Port of Galveston. Since then, the 96,000-square-foot facility in Pasadena has sat empty. It won't for much longer.
On Thursday, the Port of Houston Authority's governing board announced the cruise terminal's first-ever regular service in the form of two contracts with Princess Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line, which used to call on a terminal at Barbours Cut but left in 2007.
The agreement with California-based Princess is for the 2013-2014 season with 27 planned departures; the agreement with Florida-based Norwegian begins in 2014 and spans for a total of 75 departures. The latter includes an option for a two-year extension.
