Carnival Cruise Lines announced this week that they had extended their contract for cruise ships to call at the Port of New Orleans. So I decided to pull out this photo that seems to show how the cruise ships fit into the New Orleans culture. There is no doubt that sailing from a port such as New Orleans can extend the fun a day or two before you embark or after you disembark. (or both) ... Keep the glow alive.
We did a cruise from here in November down to the Yucatan Peninsula. It was a week of pure pleasure. I know they have a chair down there sitting in the shallow beach water with my name on it.
The photo below is just to remind myself of how beautiful it all was.
