Considering a cruise to Mexico from New Orleans

Recommended Posts

Hi, looking for feedback on your experience cruising out of New Orleans port down to Belize, Costa Maya, and Cozumel on Norwegian Escape. We've done cruises out of MIami and San Juan and loved it  just not New Orleans yet.

 

Thanks, all!

One of the benefits of cruising from NO is sailing down the Mississippi to the Gulf, about a seven hour trip. Fascinating.

I think it's good. It's a lot different than cruising out of Florida. The port is smaller. There will only be one or two ships in port. Actually the NCL port is in a shopping mall. Tons of hotels within walking distance. I highly recommend it. I would just check the weekend and make sure nothing major is going on. I've seen people book cruises when the national championship or NBA all-star game, or wrestelmania is in town and then wonder why hotel prices are so high. In general I get better hotel prices in New Orleans than Florida, California, or Galveston.

The NCL Escape is currently sailing out of San Juan - not New Orleans.  We currently have the NCL Getaway out of New Orleans to Cozumel, Costa Maya, Honudras & Belize.
