My family and I are sailing out of New Orleans in April. We are debating between flying out of Nashville or driving down. Would anyone happen to know where there is a safe parking lot if we choose to drive?
We sailed on Granduer of the Seas from New Orleans in April 2003. There is a fenced and locked lot right at the pier (between the convention center and the ships). It was $10.00 a day to be paid on entrance. (cash only then, however, I have noticed some people saying other ports are now accepting credit cards so don't know if this has changed there). It is walking distance to the embarkation point. The lot is not covered, there are also several parking lots in the immediate area which provide shuttle service to the pier. The trip down the Mississippi is fun going out and interesting coming back in at night with all the oil platforms lit up. Cheers and Have a wonderful cruise!
