Before your voyage, or after, make Higgins Hotel your home base for an in-depth dive into New Orleans’ storied history and vibrant culture

New Orleans is the sixth largest cruise port in the U.S., with a half-dozen major cruise lines setting sail from its Julia Street and Erato Street Cruise Terminals. Its location on the Mississippi River - just 100 miles or so from the Gulf of Mexico - makes it an unmatched embarkation point for sun-kissed cruises through the Caribbean and leisurely river voyages.

No trip is complete, however, without spending at least a few days before or after your cruise to explore one of the world’s most captivating and unique cities. We invite you to make Higgins Hotel your home base as you discover the city’s culture and cuisine, take a ride on a St. Charles streetcar, and tour The National World War II Museum right next door.
