HOUSTON - The first regularly scheduled cruise ship of Princess Cruises has set sail from the Port of Houston Authority’s Bayport Cruise terminal.
This is a historic sailing from the terminal since it has sat vacant for much of its time since it was built in 2008. It was only in November 2012 that the port secured its first cruise line agreements — one with Princess Cruises and one with Norwegian Cruise Lines.
The new cruise lines are expected to deliver more than 400,000 passengers to Houston over the next four years, which will result in an economic impact of $50 million annually.
