  1. Just out of curiosity, is there a "nursing station" separate from the "infirmary" on Carnival ships? I will be cruising on the Glory in a couple of weeks and will not be traveling with my blood pressure device. Not critical by any means, but wondering if there was a nursing station where I could check my blood pressure. Certainly don't need the bejesus scared out of me πŸ˜›
  2. If it's near the Zig Zag bridge, I think it's Lu Bo Lang.
  3. I believe this is the Key Bridge and Fort Carroll on embarkation day, October 21, 2017, just after 6pm local time.
  4. Thank you so much for this post. Between the eating and the sight seeing recommendations, I'll have more than enough to do for the post cruise days.
  5. Ok, thanks for the info πŸ™‚
  6. Which specific tour did you take, if I may ask. Was it the one that included zip-lining?
  7. Been following this thread for information for a September cruise. I apologize that I'm not familiar with some of the offer terminology but will try to provide some background. I will be traveling with my mother on the upcoming cruise out of NOLA. We were both on one previous Carnival cruise (October 2017 - Pride). I'm the planner and was initally booking this cruise with a "returning cruiser" offer. My PVP booked using a "casino" offer that was in my mother's account (but not mine), which provides a DOU card for her, presumably not for me πŸ™‚ . She doesn't drink alcohol, but I do. Not really looking to break any rules, more just what to expect when on board.
  8. Thanks for all the great info on this thread! I am also cruising out of NOLA for the first time this September. I am flying into NOLA the day before departure and have a reservation at the Hilton Riverside. Post cruise, I have a reservation at the Hampton on Cardonlet for 2 nights. I have been to NOLA a couple times for business and was shown the sights and food highlights as my work scheduled allowed (evenings and a random weekend). This trip I am traveling with my mother (78 years old, mobile but slow), who has not been to NOLA previously. Looking for some suggestions for self-guided walking tours, possibly good spots to exit from the trolley for a short stroll, resturant recommendations (I'll try anything pretty much, but Mom has a more limited range when it comes to cuisine in general -- other than a major sweet tooth, nothing too pricy, spicy or exotic).
