New Orleans is famous for its jazz, the extravagant carnivals and parades, and the ‘Big Easy’ lifestyle. The atmospheric French Quarter is filled with the strains of jazz and blues echoing through the streets. Bourbon Street, famous for the annual Mardi Gras, comes to life at night as it plays host to a giant street party throbbing with music, people and excellent restaurants; the party atmosphere fuelled by the bars that stay open all night.
In addition to all the partying, New Orleans has plenty of serious sightseeing options to offer. Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve is a great place to experience ‘bayou life’ in Louisiana. It offers a variety of activities, including bayou cruises from the Acadian Cultural Centre and paddlewheel boat trips from New Orleans to the historic Chalmette Battlefield sites.
Carnival Triumph is more than just a cruise ship, it’s a cruise ship with onboard spaces inspired by cities from all four corners of the world. Experience delicious coffees, cakes, cookies and pastries at Vienna Café, encounter beach-casual fare at The South Beach Club, or explore a multi-course meal at London or Paris Dining Rooms. You’ll have your choice of spots for a drink, whether you find Hollywood Dance Club or the old-continent charm of Oxford Bar more your scene. And nobody can resist getting down to the New Orleans-style jazz of The Big Easy Bar!
New Orleans-Many a visitors love affair with New Orleans begins after a bite of these crusty hero sandwiches made from fresh French bread slathered with mayonnaise and crammed with fried Gulf oysters or shrimp.
On the "cruise elegant" nights in the main dining rooms (typically two on a seven-night cruise), most passengers look dressed up, but evening gowns and tuxedos are the exception, especially in the Your Time Dining area.
