Norwegian Sun Harbors in New Orleans

Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Sun became the first ship to homeport in New Orleans, since Hurricane Katrina struck the city last year. The ship docked at the city's new, $37 million Erato Street Terminal, which is capable of housing larger cruise ships. New Orleans is the winter home of the ship, which will sail seven-day cruises in the Western Caribbean. Before Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans was one of the United States' fastest-growing homeports, with passenger embarkations and disembarkations totaling 753,000 in 2004, according to the Cruise Lines International Association.
