Can anyone give me any information on transportation to and from the pier. We are sailing on the Conquest on January 26th and would like to know if anyone knows of the best way to get to pier from the Quality Inn on O'keefe Avenue. The hotels in New Orleans do not provide shuttles any longer to the port. What are our options?
Gosh I used to work on O'keefe many years ago. If it wasn't for the luggage you could actually walk there. It's not a far drive maybe a mile or so by cab, if memory serves me! That would be the easiest way. It's not worth renting a car that's for sure. We used to love seeing the ship docked when we would go into town. Ahh, brings back many fond memories! Oh sorry I digress. It is very easy to find anyways and it's in the area known as the French Market. If possible try to get to Cafe Du Monde (it's right after you pass up Jax Brewery which is very close to the port) for cafe au lait and beignets. Happy sailing to you!
