Parking at New Orleans
What Types of Parking Garages are there at New Orleans?
New Orleans' Erato Street Garage provides multiple story covered parking for Erato Street and Julia Street cruise terminals. The covered parking area is exclusively for standard sized vehicles. Over-sized vehicles will need to park in the Poydras Street Lot, and we strongly suggest that you call and reserve in advance of your cruise for the Poydras Street Lot. (With 75 spaces, Poydras Street Lot is smaller than the Erato Street Garage. The lot is well lit and secure.)
How Much Does it Cost to Park at New Orleans?
Be prepared to pay $16 per night to park at the New Orleans cruise terminal for standard sized vehicles. For over-sized vehicles, the cost is $32. Payment at the New Orleans garage is due as you enter the garage/lot (cash, US traveler's check, MasterCard or Visa only). (updated November 2010)
Are There Discounted Parking Options for New Orleans?
If you are arriving by car the night before your cruise, several of the hotels in the area may let you leave your car in their lot while you cruise. However, you will need to stay at least one night before your cruise – look for "Park 'n Stay" rates advertised by the hotel. These hotels usually have a shuttle to take you to and from the cruise port.
