With dozens of ports, harbors, and marinas, Louisiana’s Gulf Coast is a hub of maritime activity. New Orleans is a popular cruise destination as well, and several cruise ships call the Port of New Orleans home.
From its unique and rich cultural history to its professional sports teams, Louisiana is known for lots of things. As the state’s population continues to grow, so too does its annual visitor count. Unfortunately, this means that accidents are on the rise as well. At Brais Law Firm, we regularly speak with individuals who have suffered serious injuries and lost loved ones in cruise ships and other maritime accidents.
Cruise ship passengers, maritime workers and their families have clear legal rights following serious and fatal accidents. We have decades of experience helping individuals and families assert these rights following accidents in Louisiana and around the world. We handle claims involving accidents at all Louisiana ports, harbors, and marinas—including:
We handle claims involving accidents on the water and during shore excursions as well. No matter what happens, if you are coping with the effects of a cruise ship accident or maritime injury, we strongly encourage you to speak with one of our lawyers right away.
The Port of New Orleans (also known as Port NOLA) is Louisiana’s prime cruise destination. Within walking distance of the French Quarter, Port NOLA welcomes cruise ships from all over the world.
Port NOLA is the home port for several cruise ships as well. This includes the Carnival Glory and Valor, Norwegian Breakaway, Disney Cruise Line Magic, and Royal Caribbean Radiance of the Seas. These ships cruise to locations including:
American Cruise Lines, American Queen Steamboat Company, and Viking also operate Mississippi River cruises out of Port NOLA. These cruises travel from New Orleans to Memphis on 7, 8, and 21-night itineraries.
