New Orleans & Louisiana Holidays

Head down south to one of the USA’s most historic states, home to The Big Easy.

New Orleans and Louisiana are saturated with French flair, Cajun flavours and a soundtrack of jazz and blues.

Louisiana is one of the most historic states in southern USA, with a mixture of French, African, American and French-Canadian cultures. One of its main cities, New Orleans, is known as ‘The Big Easy’ in part due to its laid back vibes and jazz and blues musical spirit. A rich-history city with music roots like no other, New Orleans is the place to come to see the high-steppers, hear the trombones and ruffle the feathers. You can take a vintage streetcar ride and see the city scenic way, cruise the Mississippi River on an historic paddle wheeler and taste those famous French beignets the southern way. With a melange of cultures and influences, make your way around irresistible Creole and Cajun restaurants, delve into the city’s French heritage and, time it right, join the world-famous Mardi Gras carnival. Head to New Orleans oldest neighborhood, the French Quarter, for an unforgettable taste of the South and a deep dive into the joy and revelry that abounds. From artisanal cocktail bars to antique shops and fortune tellers to parties on the cobblestones of Bourbon Street, this legendary ‘hood is packed with flavour. It's where you’ll find those beautiful wrought iron balconies and the city’s alluring live music scene. Art lovers and history buffs have plenty to see too; the New Orleans Museum of Art, the National World War II Museum and the Besthoff Sculpture Garden.

Looking for soulful adventure in the south? At North America by Kuoni you’ll find handpicked inspiration and carefully curated New Orleans holidays.

Evening Jazz Cruise

There's no better place or time to contemplate the New Orleans' skyline than from aboard a good old-fashioned steamboat. And if the breathtaking views of the city's skyline aren't enough to satisfy your senses, you have the option to book the cruise with a casual buffet-style dinner. Don't think the highlights of this trip are limited to the awe-inspiring vantage point or the delicious meal. Aboard the Natchez Steamboat, you're also invited to have a nosey around the ship's engine room. Inside this quaint space, redesigned to look like a museum, you'll find all sorts of historical artefacts that have many an interesting story behind them. Throughout the voyage, you can enjoy a jiggle to live jazz tunes performed by the world-renowned Dukes of Dixieland. New Orleans is famous for being the city of jazz, so the Dukes' jingles provide the playlist.
