Demand for cruising from New Orleans is growing, and our cruise line partners are responding by homeporting newer and larger ships at Port NOLA for both Caribbean and river cruises.

Carnival Cruise Line provides year-round cruises from Port NOLA on Carnival Dream and Triumph. In November, we welcome the largest ship to ever sail from New Orleans, Norwegian Breakaway. We are also thrilled to welcome the return of Royal Caribbean International in December 2018 with Vision of the Seas.

And our riverboat lines, the American Queen Steamboat Company and American Cruise Lines, bring a unique opportunity to sail on the Mississippi River.
