Plans to expand the cruise terminal in the Port of New Orleans are moving full speed ahead. The $9 million project ? of which $8.1 million will be funded by the state of Louisiana ? will combine the two smaller terminals on Julia Street in an effort to accommodate the industrys largest vessels. The undertaking was given the go-ahead at a crucial time because Carnival Cruise Lines plans to replace the 2,056-passenger Fantasy with the larger 2,758-passenger Triumph in November.
