From Disney to Carnival, here are the cruises sailing out of New Orleans in 2024

New Orleans has a lot to look forward to in 2024, from an early Mardi Gras to The Rolling Stones headlining Jazz Fest for the first time ever.

You may be looking for a vacation though, far away from our city’s nonstop celebrations — and you’re in luck.

Cruise lines are set to sail out of New Orleans next year, giving travelers a chance to explore places outside of not only the city but the country.

Fighting your way through crowds in the recently packed Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport may not sound ideal to you. Neither may stuffing your car with suitcases and snacks for a long road trip ahead.

These cruise lines are leaving from New Orleans in 2024 for international and regional travels.
