How long is the walk from the ship to the cafe? Can I drop off my luggage and take my. Carryon or would it be easier to have DH walk to the cafe while I watch the luggage? Is there a sidewalk? I can't remember seeing one but I may have been focused on the ship.
When we were there earlier this month, we dropped our checked luggage off and walked over with our carryons. Had to ask directions. When you are standing at the port where you drop your luggage off, you can look right over at the stairs that lead up to the riverwalk. However, for some reason, they were closed off. So you have to go down a small passthru/alley about 1/2 a block or so. You be walking to the left of the streetcar tracks. You'll get to an opening and on your left across the tracks are the escalators you can take to get up to the riverwalk. Only took about 5 minutes to get there. However, once inside we had to walk way down to the other end and down some stairs to the lower level to find the Cafe du Monde.
IMPORTANT: when we were there, a young girl working at one of the restaurants said that it was pretty quiet because the Riverwalk would be closing in the middle of the month for renovations of some type. Based on what she said they wouldn't be open until later next year. Dont know the specifics, but you may want double check if anyone at the port knows for certain before you walk al the way over there.
People may not remember what you said, and they may not remember what you did. But they will always remember how you made them feel.
