Royal Caribbean to stop cruise trips to Port of New Orleans

Miami-based Royal Caribbean International announced it will conclude its cruise ship service next year from the Port of New Orleans, The Times-Picayune reported on June 10.

Royal Caribbean spokeswoman Janet Diaz said there are no New Orleans ships planned for the winter of 2015-2016. The 2,360-passenger Serenade of the Seas ship replaced the larger Navigator of the Seas at the port in December 2013. Serenade underwent a major $29 million renovation. Three restaurants and an outdoor café were added, plus a wireless internet connection was installed throughout.

Port of New Orleans president and CEO Gary LaGrange said that upon conferring with Royal Caribbean CEO Adam Goldstein, he gathered that there is a possibility that Hong Kong will replace New Orleans as a port destination due to an increasing demand for cruise ships in Asia. The cruise line has not yet said whether it will return to port at New Orleans in 2016.
