American Association of Port Authorities is the alliance of ports in Canada, the Caribbean, Latin America and the United States.
The volume of cargo shipped by water is expected to dramatically increase by 2020 and the number of passengers traveling through our seaports will continue to grow. Galveston, which serves as a primary point of embarkation for cruises to the western Caribbean, welcomed 484,000 passengers and crew visits in 2009, or 2.4% percent of all passenger and crew visits nationwide.
PREVIOUS POSTObama Outlines Transportation Strategy The president's strategy over six years would aim to rebuild 150,000 miles of roadways, build and maintain 4,000 miles of track for the intercity passenger rail initiative, and fix 150 miles of airport runways while deploying a more efficient generation of air traffic control technology. For centuries, seaports have served as a vital economic lifeline by bringing goods and services to people around the world. Each year, seaports throughout the Western Hemisphere generate trillions of dollars of economic activity, support the employment of millions of people and import and export more than 4.5 billion tons of cargo including food, clothing, medicine, fuel and building materials, as well as consumer electronics and toys. To meet these demands, the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) and its members are committed to keeping seaports navigable, secure and sustainable.


These visits are estimated by the CLIA report to contribute $34.7 million in passenger and crew onshore spending, or nearly $72 per person per visit. The Carnival Magic, now in final stages of construction and due for delivery next spring, will offer 7-day cruises to the Caribbean out of Galveston starting in November 2011.
State Ports Authority hires engineering firm to refine scope of new passenger terminal The maritime agency today hired an engineering firm to develop a more detailed scope of work and cost estimate for the effort. Carnival Triumph will move to Galveston to operate year-round, running four and five-day Caribbean cruises starting the previous month. The plan will see the SPA’s cruise operations moved to a converted 100,000-square-foot building north of where they’re currently located at Union Pier.
