New Orleans, a world class destination
The ingredients have come together like a delicious gumbo. Start with the Mississippi River, then add the historic French Quarter, world class restaurants, an arts district, and shopping – all within walking distance of the port's Julia Street cruise terminal complex.

“A cruise itinerary which begins and ends in New Orleans offers passengers two vacation experiences in one trip," said Gary LaGrange Port of New Orleans executive director/CEO. "Most passengers will spend a couple of days in New Orleans either before or after their cruises." More than 11 million people visited New Orleans in 2001.

In the past decade the growth of New Orleans’ cruise industry has been phenomenal. The number of passengers embarking or making a port of call has grown from 80,000 in 1993 to an estimated 690,000 in 2003. The port’s infrastructure has grown with the passenger totals. Forty-seven million potential passengers live within a 500 mile radius of New Orleans.

Cruise terminal expansion
In the past two years, more than $9 million has been spent to upgrade the two cruise terminals at the Julia Street Wharf. New enhancements include an air-conditioned, elevated passenger gangway; expanded customs and baggage area; covered and lighted walkways and a vehicular drive in/drop off area. The two terminals combine for 35,000 square feet of check-in/waiting area, 46,000 square feet of baggage area, a 2,600 foot long berth (for three vessels) and 140,000 square feet of ship loading space. There is also on-site parking for 350 vehicles and satellite parking nearby for many more.

A new and larger cruise terminal is planned for the adjacent Erato Street wharf. “Cruise lines are telling us they want to be in New Orleans. And it’s because passengers are telling the cruise lines that New Orleans is their favorite port of embarkation,” said LaGrange. “We must continue to expand and improve our facilities to meet this growing demand.”
