Cruising past centuries-old Spanish forts lost and subsiding in the marsh grass with brown pelicans perched on the bones of ancient lighthouses and fishing camps lost in storms past, New Orleans’ skyline lies in the distance and waits. A city defined by water, shaped by the lazy crescents of the Mississippi River and buttressed by miles of levees that rarely fail, New Orleans is that exiled European society lady that you wish would invite you to dinner parties more often. She is that older, seductive woman that offers everything and is a forgotten cruising destination on the Gulf Coast.
