From the Gulf of Mexico map I've looked at New Orleans will be a slightly longer trip by approx 60 miles. IMO Port Canaveral is the better alternative, more cruise choices and some better ships from the major cruise lines.

And, the Canaveral area is great for pre and post cruise site seeing; Kennedy Space center, WDW, Universal Studios, or even enjoying the pristine beaches in the Canaveral area.
