It could have been another cruise line but with Carnival being the dominant operated at Port of Galveston it comes as no surprise they celebrated the arrival of the 10 millionth cruise passenger.

Mr. Yingtao Liu from Norman, Okla arrived at the port not knowing what awaited him and his family. The cruise line celebrated as he boarded to Carnival Vista cruise ship on December 9 at Port of Galveston in Texas.

Pavol Drimaj, Carnival Vista Hotel Director said:

“We have always recognized the incredible potential of the Port of Galveston and are proud to be a part of their momentous chievement.”

“We offer our most heartfelt and sincere congratulations to the entire port team and look forward to continuing to work together in providing great vacations and amazing service to our guests.”

The family is being given the VIP treatment from the cruise line and the port with a Carnival tote with a collection of vacation essentials, a bountiful basket of delicious treats, a specially designed gift bag of Galveston-related items, and a three-night stay at a local resort. The treatment will continue during Carnival Vista’s 7-day sailing.
