Help couple of hours in New Orleans


Recommended Posts


A bit of help please, we dock early morning on the 23.12.16 in New Orleans and are on a 1420 flight home. If we get up early and off ship as soon as we can can you suggest what to do to see the best of new Orleans we can't just look at the skyline from the ship and be content with that.


I enquired with P & O to see if they did a trip like the farewell to Barbados where they do a coach trip to points of the island and then take you to the airport.


Thanks you in advance for any help, it's just 2 of us and OH cannot do too much walking

The port is right at the French quarter. There are plenty of shops to see. Cafe Du Monde is a must stop to get the beignets. There is a Cathedral in Jackson Square. You can go in it. The bars are open no matter the time of day. Pat O'Brien's on Bourbon Street is home of the world famous drink the "Hurricane". Another must if you visit NOLA. There is the Aquarium of the Americas also in the French Quarter area. It's right in the river. There are horse drawn carriages if you want to do that. Walking is moderate. The Quarter is my favorite part of New Orleans. Also down the street from the Cafe Du Monde is the French Market. Lots of local goodies like Pralines candy. Voo doo dolls. I grew up down in that area and travel there still.
