Setting sail from New Orleans

New Orleans is a city with real soul, an exuberant, infectious sort of place where music fills the air every night of the week. Festivals and parades are a regular occurrence, with the highlights including Mardi Gras and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. There's also plenty to feast your eyes on, such as the charming historic architecture of the French Quarter and the elegant mansions of the Garden District. Food is another real highlight, with lip-smacking Creole specialties such as gumbo, jambalaya and the legendary po-boy sandwich.

Don't miss

If it’s the music you’re after, go to Frenchmen Street, the "locals' version of Bourbon". Wander into the different venues – there may not even be a cover charge, but if not, don’t forget to tip.

Arriving in New Orleans

Our tip

This is not a place to rush around and see everything – it is somewhere to people watch and get involved. Take it slow – this is the ‘Big Easy’ after all.

Crystal have repeatedly been voted the World’s Best cruise line, and Crystal Symphony is certainly a top level classic, not to be missed.

What we love

Crystal Symphony is not a new ship, but you wouldn't know it, since she is subject to an ongoing refurbishment programme, with constant innovations such as the Outdoor Fitness Garden, which ensures that the environment is always perfect and the style contemporary. This is, in short, a ship constantly honed to perfection. But ultimately it's all about the unmatchable food and service.
