Suggest you read 'cruise critic' and their ports of call section on the boards for useful info re sightseeing in N.

Hi Eileen, Not sure about the status of the trams but if they're working that's worth the experience. The French Quarter is a area that is not to be missed and you can spend many happy hours wandering, listening, looking and eating here. We did a pleasure boat jazz cruise with a evening meal which was ok but could have been better. Great place though just be as street-wise as you know how....enjoy y'all.....Ida Dow.

We visited New Orleans before the hurricane. I believe the French Quarter was largely unaffected. We did a lovely walking tour of the French Quarter with a guide who lived in the city. This was a P&O trip. We visited a period house where we had refreshments, we went to the Mardi Gras Museum and various other places. We thought it was well worth doing. We are on Arcadia to New Orleans in January so may be doing the same itinerary as you.

Hi Eileen Just caught us as we about to vanish to the open sea for a while again, some might wish us a longer cruise. I saw no offers for a trip without the meal but if you search the New Orleans tourist web site you may well find a trip with jazz only and if you do let us know because that would be great for a future trip. The French Quarter certainly has its fair ration of music which ranges greatly and is always so entertaining, it's something the American South does better than most. the food there also comes in huge portions as do the drinks, I envy you....regards Neil Dow.

Ports of Call or Sea Days?

By Lee Johnson

After booking a passenger yesterday on a 24 night Caribbean cruise from Southampton return it got me thinking about the different itineraries, some that are port intensive and some that have lots of Sea days, as this one did.Having taken my first Cruise back in 2002 on board the QE2 transatlantic to New York I fell in love with the cruise experience during those sea days. There was always something going on, be that Ballroom dancing or learning the tango (I didn’t do any of this for th...

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
