Default New Orleans

I'm taking the Western Carribean out of New Orleans on the 21st. When we return, I don't have to catch my plane until 4 pm. Does anyone know if Carnival will hold our luggage somewhere so we can explore the town before we head to the airport? Thanks.

I think the only way that Carnival will hold your luggage is if you do the Carnival New Orleans tour. Not sure about the cost or what it includes, as I live within driving distance of N.O. though. I'm sure if you've never seen the city though it is probably a pretty good tour.

You are 30-45 minutes from the airport and a $20 cab ride so unless you go with the Carnival tour it is not really feasible to pay all that money to go to the airport to drop the luggage with check in or the storage they have there and come back to the quarter. One time we met people on board that had a hotel for the night after they got off the cruise and a few of us with late flights dumped our luggage at their room and all toured the Garden District together. It was so funny as we piled in one couple's jeep cherakee - 8 adults and all our luggage - us girls were on the guys laps in the back seat (it was only a mile to the hotel) and when we pulled in front of the Sheraton (very nice hotel there) we all piled out and the porter opened the trunk and all the luggage started falling out on top of him! It was so funny - we looked like the trashy people there were all going to share a room! haha It is a great memory. One couple with the car were local and they drove home while after the time in the garden district two of us couples got a cab to the airport. Debbie
