Crusing out of NOLA next day - airport & port transport/hotel?

We are taking a Royal Caribbean cruise out of New Orleans at the end of February. We've never been there, and thought we'd arrive a day before to check it out. What is the best way to get to the city from the airport, and then from our hotel (not chosen yet), to the port? Or is it too much of a hassle and we shoud just arrive on the departure day and let the ship transfer us?

If you have the time, I would go ahead and get there a day early. Never hurts to be in town the day before a cruise, and New Orleans is a great place!
In my opinion a cab is the best way from the airport to your hotel, and from the hotel to the port. I've always taken cabs while there and have never had a problem. I've had more problems with hiring car services that dont' show up!
The is the Embassy Suites on Julia Street - only 2-3 blocks from the pier, but a good walk to Bourbon St.
There is also the Wyndham Riverfront, A Hampton Inn which is near the convention center.
