2015 Brings 1 Million Cruise Passengers to New Orleans

More than one million passengers in 2015 have passed through the Port of New Orleans cruise terminals, up 1 percent compared to 2014, marking the fifth consecutive record year.

The port, which ranks the sixth-largest cruise port in the United States, expects that the 2016 cruise season will bring new and larger ships, as Gary LaGrange, Port President and CEO said: “The fact our cruise partners are investing in new and larger ships here bodes well for the industry for years to come.”

“Our cruise partners, which include Carnival, Norwegian Cruise Line, American Cruise Line and American Queen Steamboat Company, are committed to New Orleans and represent one of the most diversified home ports in the world,” LaGrange said.

The port’s Erato Street cruise terminal currently hosts the 3,646-passenger Carnival Dream and the 2,052-passenger Carnival Elation.

The port’s Julia Street Cruise Terminal hosts Norwegian Cruise Line’s 2,340-passenger Norwegian Dawn, as well as a number of other cruise ships.
