Can't say that I have ever cruised out of N.O., but you may get more response posting this in the Ports and Hotels section and other cruise ships are cruising from NO and more people will see it there (Not everyone reads the NCL section) Hopefully someone has been on a cruise out of there since they started cruising from the port again. It may be different now than before. Its wise to ask if someone has LATELY cruised from NO.
