Does anyone on here think this maybe a bad day to start a cruise?
Also, i would like to hear from anyone who has taken this cruise about parking in New Orleans, specifically, directions to the parking lot.
This is my 4th cruise, with 2 on the Fantasy and one on the Fascination. Do they still do the "relaxed" disembarkation?

welcome to September 11th is my mother's birthday - so to me it isn't necessarily a bad day.

But seriously: If you are looking for 100% security, sadly you won't find it. Personally I wouldn't hesitate taking a cruise departing on that date - or any date for that matter - because of security concerns. What I do look for, however, is the destinations I plan to visit. But those visited by "Carnival Conquest" certainly don't make my alarm bells sound.

Have a great cruise!

hi I just got back from nola over 4th of july weekend first time I ever drove there and had to find parking the terminal, has parking right where you board the ship and plenty of spaces, the charge I think was about 10.00 per day if you are cruising if you park at any of the garages they start at 15 to 20 a day, but the terminal has secured parking can go on line to find the information, I have taken 2 cruises from nola but always flew in, the 4th of july trip was a comp at Harrahs so I was worried about parking as there is no free parking there over night, even the hotels charge for parking, I got off fairly easy I parked at harrahs and gambled and got 2 nites free the other 4 nites I paid a 10.00 fee at Doubletree hotel they validated my parking ticket, it save me 10.00 a nite as I was staying at thier hotel, but check out the site I included you can get more information we will be sailing out of nola in Jan. on the Conquest, so let me know how you enjoyed your trip !!!

I've traveled the past three years on Sept 11, with no problems. We actually found the airports fairly quiet on each occasion.

Hey TonyandJackie,
We are actually going on the Conquest on Sept. 11th for our first cruise. It will be our honeymoon and I absolutely cannot wait. I don't think it's a bad day to start a cruise... It's a date we won't ever forget though.

I hope we can chat some and get to know each other so we will know others on the ship. We do have 2 others that are coming with us, my cousin and his newlywed wife, married just this past Sunday. We are all ages 22-26. You can IM me if you want...

Brooke & Robert,
We are a little older than you guys (33 & 34)and this will be my 4th cruise, but my wifes first, and my first on the Conquest. Where are you guys coming from?
