ship to msy airport

we are looking at booking a flight after our cruise in Feb. 2014. The plane leaves MSY at 10:10 am.

Does anybody know if there is enough time to get from the cruise port and get to MSY in time for the flight?

Without the scheduled arrival time of your ship that's pretty hard to say.

What time is your ship docking?

You might get a quick answer if you post on the New Orleans Destination forum. Link is here:

Why not remove the risk and spend a night or two in the city?

our itinerary says the ship docks in New Orleans at 7 am.

I think a 10:10 am flight is cutting it too close.

Waaay too close - it could be 2-3 hours before you get off

If youu check, most cruise lines advise you to book return flights after 12 noon. Unless this is a cruise down the Mississippi river, you'll need to clear customs and immigration upon arrival. There's probably no way you'll make that flight. Change to a later flight, probably after 1 PM.

Thank you everybody for your replies. I knew that was too small of a window to catch a plane.

Booked a14:30 flight for an extra $150.:-(
