We will be cruising from New Orleans in November 2006. Since we will be driving to New Orleans we plan to use the port authority parking for cruise passengers.
Does anyone know the status of the parking they provide. Is there covered parking? How far is the parking area from the cruise ships? Do they provide shuttles from the parking area? Is it advisable to drop off the luggage at the terminal, have one person wait with it and then park the car?
How long is embarkation from this port? Is it a big issue if we pack several 2 liter Cokes in our luggage/
The Erato St. Cruise Terminal and Parking Garage should be completed by
September, 2006. Right now the NORWEGIAN SUN and Carnival's FANTASY are
scheduled to utilize the new terminal commencing in October, 2006.
RCCL's GRANDEUR OF THE SEAS will utilize Julia St. Terminal No. 2, but
passengers will park in the Erato complex which is just next door. BON
