Depending upon where you are staying, a taxi is an easy way to get to the port. We stayed in the French Quarter and had our hotel call a taxi for us. Took it 5 minutes to arrive. We got to the port in about 10 minutes. Cost was $15-ish. New Orleans is awesome. We loved our stay.

Cab from airport is fine as well. Not sure of rate - Maybe $20 or so?

I assume and hope your hotel is in or near the French Quarter.

If you hotel is downtown, i.e. Canal St/French Qtr, cab fare from the airport is about $35 for two. Same hotels to the port are about $5-7 plus tip. Easy.
