Default New Orleans transfer question???

What is the most economical way to transfer from the airport in New Orleans to the dock? We leave next Saturday on the Fantasy and I still don't have this figured out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Usually a shuttle van to the downtown hotel area. Go to the ground transporttion area at the airport and they can tell you.

I have another question also. Once we leave the ship on Thursday we will have about 5 hours before our flight home. How close will we be to a restaurant that has some great New Orleans cuisine? Any suggestions?

The last time I checked...it was $28 one way for a taxi from the airport to the port.

The airport will not be close to any restaurants. Of course the port is, but then you have the problem with hauling your luggage.

The port is right there at the French Quarter where great restaurants abound.

Sadly no...she doesn't sail until October 4th...so I would assume she will wrap up drydock on the 2nd at the latest.

We are sailing on her on October 10th. Can't wait!!

So, does this mean that Carnival is spit-polishing her just for me?

I guess so. That also means we want to see lots of pictures when you get back. Can't wait to see how she looks.
I also can't wait till it's my turn to board her.
