My wife and I are taking a trip with Carnival Cruise in October. We are traveling from Oklahoma to Louisiana by plane with a layover in Houston, TX. Our plan is to arrive early in New Orleans and go sight seeing for a bit before we board the ship.
We don't really want to haul our luggage around town. What are our options with dealing with our luggage while we are sight seeing? We've thought about renting a car, but I'm not sure if it would be worth it since we would have to return it before we boarded and possibly get a taxi to the port anyways.
The flight itinerary has us landing in New Orleans at 9:30AM and the cruise has arrival slots from 12:30am-3:00pm with departure set at 4:00pm.
