Were looking to book a cruise out of New Orleane. Is there parking and is it safe?

The Port of New Orleans is building a new terminal with attached parking lot (Erato Street Terminal). Information can be found at I received an email from them saying the new terminal and parking lot will be completed for the first sailing after Katrina, which is Oct. 15.

This construction project began long before Katrina and while in progress, the terminals used commercial parking lots nearby. I used them several times and had no problems so there is still a "backup" plan for parking should the new terminal not be completed. They are manned 24 hrs per day and also provide shuttle service. Maps are available on the Port of N.O. website.

Just an addeded comment...there was nothing wrong with the "old" terminal building other than they were small and outdated. The new one should provide a better embarkation process.

Hope this answers your question.

Hi thanks alot for the info also on the new orleans port we are leaveing on January 23rd on a crusie from there and was wondering what the terminal is like over there. I did talk today to a man that lives in N.O. and he said that the River Port didn't get that much damage from Katrina. I do hope this help too.
