The Norwegian Pearl will dock at the Port of New Orleans all day and night on January 21st which will give you plenty of time to check in, get settled, and enjoy an extra day of great music, raucous activities, and the chance to chill with your friends at the bars and restaurants on board. We’ll load on the rest of our Outlaw family the next day and sail away to sunny Costa Maya, Mexico on January 22nd.


We are teaming up with New Orleans’s own Mystic Knights of the Mau Mau, Ponderosa Stomp to present a very special revue that is sure to be an unforgettable one-night-only program that will spotlight timeless artists that embody both the roots and attitude of the Outlaw Country legacy. This one-time-only Ponderosa Stomp blowout on board the Norwegian Pearl will feature an all-star revue of American music architects, including such legendary performers as Roy Head, Johnny Bush, Lazy Lester, Augie Meyers (Sir Douglas Quintet, Texas Tornados) and more!


Explore NOLA by day then hop back on board for a night full of music and more! Keep in mind that the schedule below is just a preview and we’ll be releasing a sneak peek of the full Outlaw Country Cruise 3 schedule in the coming months.


Imagine Norwegian Pearl, our floating hotel for the night, turned into our very own swamp-de-wamp style hootenanny and that is a Bayou Bash. Laissez les bon temps rouler!

  • The pre-party is only for guests sailing on The Outlaw Country Cruise 3.
  • Guests will stay in the same cabin they reserve for the cruise.
  • The cost of the cabin for the pre-party is determined by the number of guests in the cabin during the cruise. For instance, if you have a triple occupancy cabin for the cruise, you will pay the triple occupancy rate for the pre-party even if all three guests don't attend the pre-party. For example: If only one person in a double occupancy interior cabin attends the pre-party, the cost will be $250.


You may arrive at the port as early as 11:30AM CT and must be on board by 8:00 PM CT on Sunday, January 21, 2018. It is recommended that you book your flight to land in New Orleans no later than 5:00 PM CT. Everyone MUST check-in before 8:00 PM CT; those who do not check-in at the port by this time will have to check-in the next day when the port opens. 

The port is approximately 17 miles (45 minutes) from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. Please allow extra time for traffic.


  • Customs and Border Protection regulations require that the casino and other duty free shops remain closed while we are in port. Specialty dining and spa services, as well as purchasing drinks at any of the bars will still be available.
  •  Local sales tax will be charged for dining, spa, and drink purchases while docked in New Orleans.
  • The last day to add the Pre-Party to your reservation will be 12/15/17 at 6:00pm ET.
  • Adding the Pre-Party to your reservation after the 12/15/17 deadline will result in a reservation change fee of $75 - $100. 

Please contact us with any questions about the pre-party!

The Outlaw Country Cruise 3 is run “festival style,” with multiple shows going on simultaneously. All of these shows are general admission, so you’re welcome to come and go as you wish!

There are performances where capacity is limited, however the artists perform multiple times during the cruise.

Booking your stateroom is easy! You can book online at outlawcountrycruise.com/booknow, or over the phone by calling 877-379-9189.

PLEASE NOTE!  Lead Passengers, if you or your guest(s) needs a Sixthman Username you can create one while booking.  If you and your guest have Sixthman Usernames, have your guest add you as an Approved Lead Passenger in their account.  You'll then see your guest in Your Authorized Guests list and you'll be able to add them as a guest in your cabin while booking!

Anyone who has traveled with Sixthman previously has a username and will not need to create one.  If you don't know your login credentials, you can recover them here.

Stateroom Selection: During booking you will select your desired stateroom category and occupancy, so check out the pricing page.  You will select your exact room assignment, so also check out the Norwegian Pearl’s deck plans.

Guest Permissions:  If you were a Lead Passenger on a prior event and are sailing with the same guests, your guests will be in a dropdown list for you to add to your stateroom.  If you're sailing with someone who has a Sixthman Username but has NOT sailed with you previously, have your guests login to their Sixthman profile and add your username to their 'Approved Lead Passengers' list in the 'Guest Permissions' section. They'll then be on the dropdown list for you while booking.

Naming Guests: You can add your guests later but fees may apply.  See "Can I make changes to my reservation?" here for more details.  You are obligated for the full cruise fare of the occupancy level you select during the reservation process even if you do not add guests to fill your entire stateroom.  If you wish to add guests beyond the capacity of the occupancy level you select during the reservation process you may do so based on availability for the additional cruise fare associated with the transaction.

Credit Card Payment: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express are all accepted. If you are paying with multiple credit cards, you will need all of the credit card numbers (with expiration date and card verification number) as well as the name and billing address for each card.

To let someone add you to their reservation, you'll need to have a Sixthman Username and add your lead passenger to 'Your Approved Lead Passengers' list.  Create a Sixthman profile here, or login to your existing profile.  Then, in the 'Guest Permissions' section, click the "Add New Lead Passenger" button and enter your lead passenger's username.  Once you save it, they'll appear in 'Your Approved Lead Passengers' list.  You're all set - the lead passenger can now add you as a guest in their stateroom!

The Outlaw Country Cruise 3 is currently full. If we have cancelations prior to departure (which we often do), we will fill those rooms via our Waiting List.

When signing up for the waiting list, you will be asked what type of stateroom you want. You will be required to put down a $199 deposit that is NON REFUNDABLE, except in the event we do not have a stateroom for you by November 30, 2017. This means that we will refund your deposit if we cannot accommodate your stateroom request by November 30, 2017, but you will forfeit your deposit if you decide to take yourself off the list before that time.

After November 30, 2017 we will send an email to everyone still on the waiting list asking if they would like to remain on it. If you would like to take yourself off of the waiting list at that time, you may do so and receive a check for the full refund of your deposit. If you choose to stay on the waiting list past November 30, 2017, and we cannot accommodate your stateroom request before the cruise sails, we will automatically refund your deposit a few weeks after sailing.

FIRST AVAILABLE - If you chose “First Available – Waiting List First Available”, you are committing to take any type of stateroom that may come available, including suites.
