About the Port of New Orleans

The Lower Mississippi River makes up the world's busiest shipping complex, and the Port of New Orleans is at the heart of it. The vast inland waterway of the Mississippi and rivers that pour into it meet the Gulf of Mexico and worldwide access.

New Orleans is one of the most colorful cities in the United States, with deep cultural traditions. The city and port was founded by the French in 1718. It was ceded to Spain for a time, regained by France, then sold to the United States as part of the Louisiana Purchase. The buying of vast sections of land meant New Orleans was part of the United States. From 1820 to 1870, New Orleans was second only to New York City for the number of immigrants coming in from overseas.

The cruise port sees departures leave for shorter cruises in the Gulf of Mexico or down to the Mexican coastal cities of Cancun and Cozumel as well as longer cruises taking in the wider Caribbean. The Crescent City is also a great addition to your cruise itinerary.

The French Quarter and Bourbon Street are famous for their food and nightlife. The National World War II Museum provides a look back at one of the most decisive events in human history. Other fine museums and the Audubon Zoo are close by. Don't forget Mardi Gras if you can get to the Big Easy that time of year.

Taking a cruise out of the Port of New Orleans is a great way to experience some of the best destinations and vessels in cruising while taking in some New Orleans culture.
