As if New Orleans wasn't enough of a destination point on its own merit, the city is also a popular port for vacation cruise lines (as well as for important commerce with other ports around the world). The New Orleans cruise port is located near the Crescent City Connection bridge, which crosses the Mississippi River.
There are two convenient ways to get to the port. One is by car, and the other is by street car. If you decide to take the New Orleans street car, your booking options for a hotel open up considerably, as the street car connects with Canal Street and runs alongside the French Quarter and through the Garden District.
If you're looking to get to the port by cab quickly, the best option is to pick a hotel nearest the port in the Central Business District (also called the Convention Center area). A taxi can have you to the port in a matter of minutes, and you'll be on your way to the rest of your vacation!
