Cruises From New Orleans
Cruises from New Orleans are now operation year round with Carnival with seasonal Caribbean-Western cruises with NCL during the Winter months. Norwegian Dawn’s 7 day cruises ventures out to Cozumel, Belize, Honduras and Costa Maya offering an interesting itinerary with Norwegian’s infamous hospitality.
One of the newer ports to most cruise lines is Roatan Honduras. Roatan is a long island, measuring almost 40 miles in length and with a total landmass of 49 Square miles. The island has a mountainous backbone and is totally surrounded by coral reefs, offering superb diving as well as excellent fishing.

Carnival has two ships operating with cruises from New Orleans; Carnival Triumph and Carnival Dream. The Triumph offers the short 4 and 5 day cruises to Mexico stopping at Cozumel and Progreso and the Dream offers a longer 7 day itinerary stopping at Cozumel, Roatan, Belize and Montego Bay, Jamaica. Montego Bay has beaches, restaurants and a great Jamaican Vibe – Mon! It is also home to 4 championship golf courses and a variety of shore excursions including waterfall tours.
Carnival Dream also has two 8 day cruises this year adding Costa Maya and Grand Cayman to the list.
Cruises from New Orleans are as fun as the infamous city itself. Why not combine the two for a fun filled vacation for all the family.
