Port of Call New Orleans
Perhaps the most 'foreign' and exotic of all American cities, New Orleans is a world in itself. French, Spanish, West Indian, and African influences have combined to produce a masterpiece of balconied colonial homes and ante-bellum mansions, Creole seafood delicacies and a pinch of voodoo, all accompanied by the immortal rhythms of jazz, which were invented here.

If You're Driving to the Port

We like New Orleans Parking.  Close to the pier, shuttles keep you moving, getting in and out better than the pier parking and much better pricing than the $16/night charged at the pier.

If You're Flying In

The pier itself is every bit of 35-45 minutes depending on traffic from the airport (MSY).  The shuttle provided by the cruise lines are much more efficient and a better option than a taxi.

If You're Coming for a Pre Cruise Night

There are a few park and cruise packages, but New Orleans ALWAYS has something going on, especially on the weekends that they don't really cater to the cruise guests like many other ports.  Contact us for the best options for New Orleans.  A word of warning especially for weekend departures, Friday and Saturday nights are a premium price for hotel stays.

New Orleans is unlike any other city in the U.S. It possesses a magic that cannot be explained, only experienced. This resilient city is just getting back on its feet following Hurricane Katrina, and ShoreTrips is particularly proud of our shore excursions that spotlight the impact that Katrina has had on the city. Of course, we don't forget about the Cajun Bayou or New Orleans' incomparable shopping and antiquing opportunities!
