We're taking a cruise out of the New Orleans port for the first time in August of 2014. Normally when I've taken cruises in the past I've always flown in, this time were driving down..that means parking! Does anyone have good tips or a cheap way to do it? From the research I've done so far there are some parking garages close to the port that's about 11 dollars a day and will shuttle you to the port. Otherwise I have seen some hotels that offer you to keep your car there when you stay a night however by what I've found those hotels seem to be kind of pricey. We're not looking for a high class place we'd be okay with staying in a cheap hotel. Any tips on which is better or good places to stay for a night you can park? (Like I said not concerned about places being high class but I do want my car to be safe for the week) thanks everyone in advanced for opinions!
