    SO following. Our February cruise sails out of New Orleans and we'll be spending an extra day on either end of the cruise there...

    That's exactly what I did. We sailed on a Sunday I think and arrived Thursday evening. We spent all day Friday walking around and checking things out, did some more of the same on Saturday and then got on the ship.

    I compiled all the suggestions into a nice little NESR travel guide so I could print it out, feel free to edit/print/share..

    We decided to do the steamboat on Monday, looks pretty touristy but we MUST go on a steamboat.

    NOLA was awesome. I think we packed a week into two days, thoroughly exhausted but so worth it. Definitely want to return with the kiddo soon.

    Food was amazing, wife survived a Hurricane, great music, cool museums. The home tour was interesting but not what we expected, less amazing architecture and more crazy rich-ish people filling their homes with overpriced eclectic junk and showboating to anyone that would stop by. Not recommended unless you're into gaudy French antiques and obnoxious rich people. (In fairness, two of the homeowners were extremely nice, the others were like nails on a chalkboard)

    Steamboat Natchez was worth doing, but once and only once. Terrible food, hundreds of tourists packed on a boat, incredibly long lines on/off. Really cool way to see the Mississippi and tour a steam engine but the most touristy attraction of all.

    Our favorite parts were the insectorium and just walking around the French quarter (Frenchman st, etc) listening to music, eating, and checking out the old buildings. Lucked out with some great weather too.

    AND.. I was asked where I got my shoes from. No joke.
