Cruising to New Orleans

A cruise to New Orleans is an adventure into a melting pot of cultures on the Louisiana coast where one moment you'll be listening to the smooth tones of Jazz and the next dining on Creole cuisine amongst French-style architecture.

New Orleans Port

New Orleans port is one of the biggest cruise terminals in the US and a popular stopoff on Caribbean cruises. With cruise lines including Carnival and Norwegian Cruise Line giving guests the chance to visit, it won't be long before you immerse yourself in the sounds of jazz, the delicious cuisine and the vibrant atmosphere found throughout. What's more, while New Orleans' nickname may be The Big Easy, hinting to an adult-orientated city, you'll also find plenty of activities to keep all the family happy.

What To Do On A New Orleans Cruise

With the cruise port just ten minutes on foot from the French Quarter, you'll quickly find your bearings as you wander around streets lined with colourful buildings and bars playing jazz music. There are plenty of places to eat and drink here, and sampling Cajun specialities is a must, but if you're really looking to get into the spirit of the city, the French Market boasts street food, local crafts and performers. For those wanting to venture further afield and explore more of what New Orleans has to offer, the iconic streetcars are the best way to travel. To see the more creative side of the city, head to art galleries and trendy restaurants of the Warehouse District, or for those travelling with kids looking for parks and green spaces, Midcity is home to the City Park and Museum of Art and Sculpture Gardens. Other activities on a New Orleans cruise include:

  • If you're travelling in February, the vibrant and colourful Mardi Gras celebrations are a must
  • Antique shop browsing on Royal Street
  • A tour of New Orleans' ornate cemeteries
