Cruise port driving directions, parking, hotels and cruise ship schedules.
There’s nothing better than being able to get in your car and drive to a cruise port. Of course you’ll save money on airfare. Even if you factor in gas, hotels and parking, it still can be a better deal if you live close enough to the cruise port. Some ports have an online option to prepay for their parking, including off site parking. No more long lines at the exit window at the cruise terminal parking structures.
The cruise ports listed below are the most widely used embarkation ports for ocean cruises. However, New Orleans is also home to Mississippi river cruise companies; among them are American Cruise Line, American Queen Steamboat Company and French America Line.
