We flew to New Orleans the day before and stayed at the Marriott using my points. We didn't arrive as early as we had hoped, so we only had about 12 hours there before it was time to embark. We ate brunch at Brennon's (always fabulous) and ... Read more

Embarkation in N.O. was easy- we waited until 2:00 p.m. to board, and stood in line for less than 30 minutes before boarding the ship. Our group of 6 included my wife and I, my in-laws and my daughter & her college roommate. We had ... Read more

The ship: We had a quiet and clean inside cabin on the 9th deck. The room is small, but comfortable, with a nice size shower! There was no refrigerator in our room, but our room stewards did well with supplying us with ice. Our room ... Read more

I'll start by saying that my wife and I spent 4 days in New Orleans before the cruise, and it was a great time. If you can swing it, I'd recommend getting there early and exploring New Orleans a bit, lots to see and do. Now onto the ... Read more

Embarkation - we were very disappointed with the embarkation process. Mardi Gras traffic put us behind schedule but that will not be considered. When we arrived our baggage was handled efficiently. From there we stood in a very long line ... Read more
