2013 Mardi Gras and Caribbean Cruise from New Orleans
Take your Mardi Gras beads for a ride down the Mississippi River and into the Caribbean next February!
February is always a popular month for New Orleans, and 2013 looks to be even better. Next year, the Super Bowl will be held on February 3 in New Orleans for the first time since Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.
Just 9 days later, the parade season will begin with Mardi Gras on February 12! Since Mardi Gras will be shortened because of the Super Bowl, you can continue the party on a cruise to the Caribbean.
Sailing out on February 14, the Carnival Elation will travel down the Mississippi River and into the Caribbean for a 4 night cruise. The rate for the 4 night Caribbean cruise is currently starting at $269 per person + tax.
I don’t need to tell you the importance of starting your planning now, due to the popularity of Mardi Gras.
