Port of New Orleans
Unless you live in the area, you'll probably want to spend a night or two in a New Orleans hotel either before or after your cruise--or both.
Especially since the Julia and Erato Cruise Terminal Complexes at the Port of New Orleans are in the heart of downtown New Orleans, perfectly located for the cruise passengers.
The terminals are directly behind the New Orleans Convention Center and bordering the warehouse district and central business district, within walking distance of the historic French Quarter.
Overall, there are 40,000 available hotel rooms, including all the major and minor chains as well as local ones.
