New Orleans Cruise Port Guide: French Quarter On Your Own
IMPORTANT: THE JULIA STREET STATION AND POYDRAS STREET STATION ARE CURRENTLY NOT PART OF THE RIVERFRONT STREETCAR!
New Orleans is a cruise port city that has a ton to offer! But, if you only have a limited amount of time to visit, you can still easily get a small taste of the French Quarter — and the yummy Original Café du Monde Coffee Stand — if your cruise begins, ends, or visits the Port of New Orleans, which is located behind — or east of — the New Orleans Convention Center.
