I think you just need to keep checking here. Many times rumors as to release dates appear here sooner than from DCL directly.

The Princess is correct, seems I find out about new release on these boards before the "official" announcement from DCL.

It dawned on me today that, didn't Disney make a whole resort Orleans themed? French Quarter etc? So it they can theme a whole resort around New Orleans, seems to reason they wouldn't mind docking there either...

Five words - Crescent River Port Pilots' Association

In order to navigate the Miss River in the city of NOLA, you must have a CRPP on board. They literally climb from one moving vessel onto the ship, help navigate the ship through the twisting canal, and hop onto another moving vessel at the mouth of the river. This service does not come cheap and therein lies the problem. DCL has not been willing to pay the fee.

Most ports require a pilot on board when entering port. The only one that DCL currently sails to that doesn't require one is Castaway Cay as they own it. So I doubt it has anything to do with not wanting to pay for a pilot, they just may not have thought of it. I did see a rumor somewhere that NOLA was lobing Disney heavily to bring a ship to them, similar to when they announced they were going to Seattle instead of Vancouver for the Alaska cruises.

Port Auth in NO is run by State

The offer is substantial. NO board wants to build second new terminal.
They have some very nice ships comming this fall. Nor. JEWEL, Navigator of the Sea, and big catch is the Maiden US Voyages of the all new Carnival Sunshine. Plus the sailings of the other Carnival Ship. Were the pilot cost more because it is 90 miles up river from south pass to docks. It is something that could be offset with docking fee reduction. Biggest problem right now was the bad taste in DCL venture into Galveston.

We can only hope DCL comes to NOLA I have a standing reservation on the first cruise. 56 miles from my front door. I would not even have to pay for parking get friend to drop me off.

You never know. But you have to get business some were. Second new ship terminal comming, whole new Terminal at International Airport. DCL is facing stiff competion on Fla East coast. One of three unique cities in US. Look at bring kids along two days early. Catch Mardi Gras parade, visit one of the best Zoos in the contry, and acquarium two blocks from were the ships dock, and The D Days Musume. Yes if adult you can go to Burbor St.

Nope.

They've done everything they can to sell off the remainder of the sailings but it has looked all but desperate. DCL even pulled out of its contract early, paying substantial fees to do so.

Its kinda hard to get to. I noticed that they were a lil cheaper... But I like CC and PC and Orlando too much to try Texas so far...guess that's where I'm not alone... What about somewhere in the middle like Carolinas...

We would love a sailing out of Charleston SC. There is Disney Resort in Hilton Head so Charleston sailing could bring more travelers to Hilton Head.

Whoa, whoa, whoa!! I think you are referring to Bourbon St which is ONE street in the entire city! The FQ is a beautiful area filled with families during the day. NOLA has plenty to offer families. And let's remember, ORLANDO has the highest violent crime rate in the nation.
Whether DCL comes to NOLA or not, do not call it a sin filled gutter.
