I stayed at the LaQuinta in Gretna for one night and was able to leave my car at no charge for the cruise. A cab ride was $17 each way.

Plan for delays and breakdowns. The gangway was broken on our way coming in and it also broke down on our way leaving out. So be prepared to wait, and to be inconvenienced. But make fun of it by dancing in the line and getting to know some of the people who will be on the ship with you.

spent two days there. it was our first time so we asked lots of people for hints. Ride the cable car, a $3.00 24 hour pass was perfect for us and we rode and got on and off a lot. breakfast at Ruby Slipper. on there site they suggest an app for reservations use it. Lunch at Antoines was fantastic. it was $20.16 for a three course meal very southern and $0.25 martinis. take a walking tour at free walking tours.com we did the ghost one. it was fun and informative.

Even if you have a late check in get to Ship Parking early and walk over to the mall next door if you need to waste time! Parking fills up fast!

We drove in the night before the cruise, so we didn't have a lot of time to sightsee. I did go to Café Du Monde & tried the beignets. They are very good. If you want to avoid the crowds, go to the one in Kenner, near the airport.
