I had checked upon boarding to see if a hotel drop off could be made instead of the one at the airport since I was spending the night in New Orleans, the main reason I booked this cruise since I had been on the ship & to all the ports at least once before.When they confirmed it was possible I was happy to book it. Unfortunately on the day of the tour there seemed to be a problem on the dock & the tour was over an hour late leaving thus cutting down the time alloted at each stop but not affecting the places we saw. It was a really good tour & our guide Pat & driver, Monica were lovely & helpful. I was dropped off at Hotel Drury after the airport stop. This is a great hotel with a good location, nice rooms & some free food & drinks.

New Orleans is a destination in itself. Bourbon street has to be walked once in the evening to understand the zoo it has become. Not out kind of scene. Just one street down, you can walk on Royal Street and is so much more pleasant. However, Saturday night is no good for shopping, as many boutiques and antique shops are closed. Fancier restaurants are busy and also pricy.
As we took a city tour upon our return, we really were able to appreciate the beauty of this singular city. Beautiful houses in the Garden District, Pontchartrain Lake, the cemetaries, the parks (Botanical garden) where you can enjoy the sculptures, the trolley rides, the French Market... everything contribute to make you want to return one day and really discover this beautiful place.

We visited cemeteries, various styles of architecture and toured the canal system and areas where the system failed. We had a refreshment stop at the Art Museum park.

We had a late flight so we signed up for this 3 hr bus tour. Was a highlight of the trip to New Orleans. Saw many things that we couldn't on our 2 days before the cruise. Tour guide was very funny and informative. Explained the many things that happened during Katrina. Bus dropped us off at the airport.
