Sailings from New Orleans 2014 and beyond...

Here is a link to a local article... I think it would be pretty cool... Maybe they can link it in with some tour activities designed around "The Princess and the Frog" and "The Haunted Mansion"...

I couldn't handle it. I live literally ON the river. I watch 2 Carnival ships, Navigator of the Seas, and A Norweigian ship pass here every week from my sofa. I couldn't handle seeing a Disney ship pass every week. We'd go broke!

But yo'd be close enough to do the "GT" pricing since transport isn't an issue :-)

I just don't see n.o. as 'family friendly'. it has such an adult party reputation, can it get past that?
actually if las vegas did it I guess they could.

Oh, I would LOVE this. Now that we have completed all 50 states, New Orleans is one of the cities on our list of cities to visit. I'd love to go there and stay a view days and leave on a Disney Cruise. I think Disney could do more there with excursions and "link-ups" than they could in Galveston.

This would be great as we are only 3 hours away! We lived in Houston for 5 years but moved just a few months before the Magic arrived. Hopefully we'll get a ship near us one day :-)

New Orleans is probably my favorite city. I'm afraid I'd get there and not want to get on the ship!

New Orleans is on our bucket list. Adding a cruise to that sounds great!

Thanks for sharing this article. Now I'm getting my hopes up for DCL to sail from New Orleans. I was in New Orleans right around Christmas attending the New Orleans Bowl. I saw the beautiful RCCL ship in port as I was coming over the GNO bridge. I thought 'It sure would be awesome if DCL would leave from New Orleans. But that will never happen'. Now maybe it could actually happen!!!!

We moved back to Louisiana last year after being in Houston for almost 12 years. I already had a cruise booked on the Magic from Galveston when we moved. It was still easy to drive to Galveston and we had a wonderful cruise. We are just about 2 hours from New Orleans now. It would be so awesome for DCL to be there!!!!

We would LOVE this! We are only 6 hours from New Orleans vs. 13 to Florida. We considered a cruise this summer from New Orleans but decided against it because it wasn't Disney. We would be all over Disney cruises from New Orleans and would sail any chance possible
