A New Orleans City break and 6 day Mississippi Cruise, celebrating Mardi Gras in 2017


So, if you’re thinking about experiencing Mardi Gras in New Orleans for the first time we have just booked an amazing trip for one of our clients!

Our client will enjoy a 3 night stay at the New Orleans Hilton taking in the sights, smells and energy of the Mardi Gras before chillaxing on a 6 day cruise up the Mississippi. Followed by a further 2 night stay in New Orleans.
This really will be a trip to remember.

First things first, Mardi Gras 2017 is on Tuesday, February 28, 2017. Mardi Gras always lands on the Tuesday that is 47 days before Easter. It is always the day before Ash Wednesday, which is the start of Lent. Carnival season refers to the weeks leading up to Mardi Gras, and officially begins on January 6 every year. Although Carnival season lasts more than a month, the parties, parades and fun kick into high gear on the Thursday before Mardi Gras.
Most hotels sell out months before Carnival season. Sometimes, rooms can be booked at the last minute, but don’t expect any last-minute deals. The ideal locations are in the French Quarter, Downtown/Warehouse District and Garden District, specifically hotels along the parade routes. About 80 percent of Mardi Gras happens within walking distance of these hotels. Our team can help you find the perfect location for your city break.


MUSIC ON THE MISSISSIPPI 6 Day Cruise - For those looking for a brief encounter with the historic South and the classic sounds of the 50s and 60s, this is the perfect journey for you. Experience the best plantations, gardens, nostalgic music and cuisine in less than a week. Stately Southern belles still greet you at the impressive tree-lined entrance to Oak Alley Plantation where you can learn the ways of the blacksmith or just soak in the Antebellum spirit. Each evening enjoy reminiscing to the legendary tunes you know so well. Even on this abbreviated tour, you will feel your worries drift away with the relaxing pace of life in the Deep South.


If you fancy doing a similar trip expect to pay around £5,000 per person. Please give us a call on 020 8882 0141 to arrange your bespoke luxury trip in 2017.
