A cab to the pier for 2 people is around $20 and takes less than 10 minutes.
I assume since its a conquest thread (love Magic a LOT, agree completely), they were asking about hotels in NOLA.

I start with cruise123.com and see what they list for cruisespecials. Lately Holiday Inn Superdome seems to have gone up, though they do offer a cruise package that is good.

I just did Voyger very last minute (booked only 5 1/2 days before the cruise) and did quality inn westbank for $129, 8 days of parking, shuttle to and from the port, and easy to get to the hotel. full breakfast and free internet included.

For this Nov, Im debating between Marriott, Convention Center location, right near the port so I can walk, for $159 with a $10 starbucks card, or Quality Inn for $129 again.

Hotels seem to have gone up in NOLA if you ask me. Had been getting Holiday Inn for $99 before this time.

Are you planning on parking at the port? I found that there is a holiday inn and a quality in both have free parking, welcome beverages, breakfast and a shuttle to and from the port all for around what it cost just to park at the port.

How was the quality inn? Is it safe to leave my car there during the cruise? How was the room?
I can't decide between that one and the holiday inn. Both offer about the same package but one is about 50 dollars less.

see above .. just posted above you (maybe we were posting at the same time). I just did the cruise special for quality inn westbank. the quality inn in new Orleans told me just 2 weeks ago they no longer offers a cruise package.

I would never park at the port.. thats why I do a cruise package that includes parking. It would have been $108 to park at the port.

I did the april 7 to 14th, voyager OTS and did quality inn and called the quality inn in new orleans among others .. and the best deal was the one shown thru stay123.com .. the one in westbank, though stay123 is sneaky and does not say its not in the city. I would book it direct though and not thru stay123 as they have a big deposit and a penalty to cancel usually.

The quality inn I am considering says it's in Gretna is that westbank?

The service was very new orleans, and friendly. The huge platter of bacon was perfectly cooked, with scrambled eggs and grits and fruit and sausage gravy and bisquits (no waffles like chains do these days). But they are not the one in new orleans, they are in westbank.

the shuttle driver was friendly and asked me to put a review up for their hotel on trip advisor and I will, but I did jewel and just got home monday from jewel. did 3 cruises in 3 weeks so just catching up.

I had trouble getting online and the front desk changed my room which is more than the 3 star hyatt place in tampa did when I had live bugs. The service was good.

Its rather black in that area, which might bother some. Its right on the access road when you get off the mississippi bridge. Lots of fast food to get something to eat for dinner.

some would say holiday Inn superdome is iffy too for neighborhood with that almost vacant block next to it.

I wish I could do 3 cruises In 3 weeks!! I still have over 300 days for mine Thank you for the info. Very helpful! I don't think the holiday inn I seen online was in Nola either tho. It said something about being 8 miles away. I think I'm gonna stick with the quality inn. I did enjoy the one that I stayed at in Galvaston.

We sailed the Conquest twice and the Liberty once. Sur Mer is a favorite for us- especially the first day as very few people are aware of it. It is so much qieter and fresher than the Lido lunch that is served at Embarkation
The draft beer served at the sports bar was a bit cheaper as well
My main complaint about this class of ship is that the floor plan is chopped up and makes it very confusing. I elieve only two or three decks cut through the ship. The atrium and dining rooms cut off the walkways. Also the walkways around the shopping area are tiny. At night it gets a little uncomfortable
But any cruise is a fun cruise so enjoy!

We have been on Conquest four times, and I can't think of anything negative.

About #3- This is the one ship I've seen the staff actually enforce the "no kids" rule on any ship. (Haven't sailed any ship with Serenity, though). So yes, it's almost like Serenity. Kids can be in the area, but not in the pool or hottub, so most don't hang out there.

No we are flying in from New Mexico .... don't know yet if it will be 1 or 2 days before we sail. I do know that it will be 1 day after the ship returns.

You are right, we were in 7440 and the layout of the cabin will only support 2 guest. No room for a 3rd bed. For two it had lots of room. The bed was at an angle. Some of the other aft wraps may be different, don't know...We did have a couple of item fall on our balcony from the top deck.... cup, and cig. butts. There is a overhange which runs the length of the aft part of the balcony it sicks away form the ship 2 or 3 ft. Plenty of sun/shade and no smoke. When we were underway the side part of the balcony was windy, but not the aft. We sat outside on all the Sea Days never had a problem.

We would love the wrap around balcony....but they don't accomodate 3 passengers. What deck were you on? Do you remember if there was very much overhead coverage on the balcony's?

I noticed from different photo's posted on the web that the aft of the ship is angled .... did you notice any privacy issues?

So would you recommend the quality inn? We are staying there Saturday night.

I did walk off debark, and I called them.. twice as it wasnt clear which door to wait for them, I forgot (they did tell us when he dropped us off and the desk didnt seem to know).

Someone else called them.

Another large family of 5 or 6 walked up just as the bus pulled up.. so we had a full shuttle bus going back to the hotel with two large families plus me.

Its a nice sized bus and the driver extra nice and friendly.

But yes... we had to call them and wait maybe 20 minutes.. the hotel is not far away.

PS after the shuttle my car windows were fogged up so I also had to take time to wipe them off with napkins from the breakfast buffet and had some purple stuff on my bumper to clean off before I could start home. Got a cup of coffee, but I guess nothing to stop you from eating the free breakfast when you get back to the hotel if you wanted to.
