New Orleans Cruise Terminal

The New Orleans cruise terminals at the Julia Street Wharf have been upgraded and a new and larger cruise terminal is open at the adjacent Erato Street wharf. The terminal is designed to accommodate the largest cruise ships.

The New Orleans cruise port is located within walking distance of the Arts District and the French Quarter. It is next to the RiverWalk Shopping Mall, so you can shop until it's time to board the ship. The New Orleans cruise terminal complex is also on the RiverFront streetcar line.
