    Hotels?

    Between Saints games and cruises I go to New Orleans a lot. I'll be there tomorrow actually.

    Hotels?

    Some other options if you want to be in or closer to transportation to the french quarter. 3* French Quarter Bourbon Street 95% recommendation $113 - Sheraton Four points..This is one of the hotels on Bourbon Street..a very good price for weekend nights. 3.5* French Quarter-Bourbon Street 90% recommendation $116 - Holiday Inn Chateau LaMoyne - If you want the French Quarter hotel exprerience but a block off of Bourbon Street. 4* Central Downtown 90% recommendation $117 - Intercontinental - right on the St. Charles Streetcar line...and really just 3-4 blocks from the french quarter 3* Central Downtown 75% recommendation $91 - The Blake - right on the St. Charles Streetcar line.

    Hotels?

    I would highly recommend checking out the WWII museum if that interests you. It's one of the top museums in the country and 3-4 blocks from the Hyatt and Hilton Garden. Cambria would be a couple blocks further from it but a couple blocks closer to the French Quarter. Plan 5 hours if you do go. https://www.nationalww2museum.org/ Normally I would say you can just take the streetcar from Julia street to the French Quarter but with construction on the new four seasons hotel, that streetcar stop is closed. It's supposed to be replaced with a shuttle according to the article I read but I haven't used it or heard of anyone using it. https://wgno.com/2018/07/30/two-stops-on-riverfront-streetcar-line-suspended-for-four-seasons-hotel-construction/ From the Cambria you'd be about 4 blocks from the French Quarter and from the others it would be more like 6-7 blocks.

    Carnival price protection Lamanai excursion

    I just booked this excursion today and submitted the price protection form. Used my Carnival Mastercard so I should get a 10% refund from them. I would just go with the outside company but on such a long excursion, I'd rather it be through carnival. Will update when I hear back from them.

    Hotels?

    I don't know the priceline hotels as well as the hotwire ones. On Hotwire I can tell you the Warehouse District 3* all suites with 85% recommendation for $98 is the Hyatt Place New Orleans Convention Center. The Warehouse District 4* with 95% recommendation for $101 is the Cambria. The Warehouse District 3.5* with 85% recommendation for $102 is the Hilton Garden Inn Convention Center. Those would be the ones closest to the port.

    Best parking plan for NOLA with wheelchair

    Under the circumstances I'd definitely do port parking. Porters will take your luggage and elevators will take you right into the port.
  7. It's pretty good. I go between whataburger and chickfila for my chicken biscuits...but lean whataburger in part because I get a free chicken biscuit every 5 visits with their app. The honey butter is pretty good though.
  8. How about a whataburger honey butter chicken biscuit?

    Homewood Suites French Quarter

    100% Sheraton on Canal for me. Great hotel. Great location. That Homewood is just past the outter edge of where I feel comfortable walking down there.

    Another New Orleans park and cruise question

    Good to know. They need to put it on their website. I haven’t called to book a hotel in 15 years. So that’s $5 less than country inn and suites. Don’t think country inn and suites has the cocktails but it has parking, breakfast and a ride to the port ( not back though). Looks like a $20 lyft/Uber back. $20 uber/lyft each way on the holiday inn.

    Streetcar to Julia Street Terminal

    NEW ORLEANS — Two stops on the Riverfront Streetcar route are suspended for up to a year in order to start construction on the new Four Seasons Hotel at the World Trade Center building and other private residences in the area. In order to make way for the new $500 million dollar project, both the Poydras and the Julia Street stations will be closing down. But RTA is offering a complimentary looped shuttle service in its place. The new route will take commuters from the Canal Street station to the Julia Street station and will be available seven days a week from 10 a.m – 7 p.m. https://wgno.com/2018/07/30/two-stops-on-riverfront-streetcar-line-suspended-for-four-seasons-hotel-construction/

    Shuttle Info for Fulton Pl Garage NOLA

    It's on the side. When you get off of the elevator it'll be to your right outside the doors. There will likely be other people out there waiting.
