Default Parking at Port of New Orleans

Hi there, My friend and I are driving to the port in New Orleans. Sailing on Conquest 1-16-04 We want to park there at the port but I have some questions.

How fast does the lot fill up? What time would we have to get there to ensure a spot?

Is it secure?

I heard there is construction at the port, does anyone know if this will pose a problem?

Are there any other parking alternatives close by the port? We are looking to spend around $10 per day.

Thanks for the help!

The old Julia Street cruise terminal parking lot is all torn up right now due to construction. You can park at several nearby private parking lots for around $12.00 per day. Most offer complimentary shuttle service to the cruise terminal.

Rob--if you plan to drive in a day early there is a hotel in New Orleans called the Maison St. Charles--they have really good rates on their cruise package with $5 per night parking (i think) and free limo to cruise terminal. there are also a few other perks.

The best and nearest place is the fulton place garage, it's a several story covered parking deck only a couple of blocks from the port. I parked there last week and had no problems, they have a free shuttle to and from the pier. The price is $12.00 per day. Hope that helps.

Thanks Jim.

Also, we are unable to get there a day early since we are driving from Minnesota. Ugh. I wish we had more time to do so. We plan on staying in New Orleans after the cruise for a few days.

Thanks!
