Transportation from Gulfport airport to cruise in New Orlean

I have a couple of questions.

1. We are flying into Gulfport on a Sunday and our cruise leaves on Monday from New Orleans. What is the best way to get there for the best price?

2. Where would be the best place to stay? We don't arrive until evening and wasn't sure if we should travel on to New Orleans or stay in Gulfport.

I would appreciate any help.

Thanks.

I would love an answer to the travel information as well. A one way car rental from Gulfport to New Orleans is very expensive.

The "best" way to get to New Orleans is by renting a car and driving yourself.

If renting a car is too expensive, there is Greyhound bus service, usually once or twice a day. I think it leaves Gulfport at 4:30pm and arrives in NO at 6:25pm. IIRC, it costs around $25.

If you arrive in the evening, the bus probably wouldn't be an option and you'd have to spend the night in Gulfport. But again, the best option is to rent a car and drive yourself. You don't say when your cruise departs, so only you can figure out what works for your schedule.
