Sail Date: Aug 2005
Traveled with children

We arrived a day early and spent the day walking the French Quarter. We ate lunch at Port O Call on Esplanade. This is a local bar just off Bourbon Street that serves great hamburgers and great drinks!

On Saturday morning, we took a taxi from the Naval Support Activity Base on the West Bank. The round trip fare of $30 was better than parking at the Fulton Street Garage and allowed us to drop off and pick up directly at the pier.

EMBARKATION: We arrived about 11:30 and the crowd was beginning to form. It took about 10 minutes to queue to the registration desk, get our gold Sign and Sail cards and complete the check in. From here we went to a waiting area and sat for about 20 minutes. From here we were sent through the x-ray machines and had our pictures made. Then had our S&S cards verified with pictures; and onto the ship.
