How long would it take a freighter or cargo ship to travel from New Orleans, Louisiana to Venice, Italy?

I am a fiction writer and my ususal research sources have failed me on this occasion. I’m just looking for a ballpark estimate from New Orleans to Venice with maybe one refueling stop if necessary.

It depends entirely on how fast the ship can travel. A ship that travels at 20 knots covers about 500 miles per day, and would make it from New Orleans to Venice in about 14 days. A ship moving at 10 knots would take twice the time. And so on.

Note that a realistic "refueling stop" would be the port of Algeciras, in southern Spain. That would be about 9 days out from New Orleans at 20 knots. When passenger liners traveled between the Med and NY they would stop at Algeciras before starting the trans-Atlantic "speed run".

Remember that it takes a ship 8 to 12 hours to travel from New Orleans to the mouth of the Mississippi. A "pilot" is required for that trip: http://www.crescentpilots.com/

Do you think the President should travel to Louisiana?

Maybe I am paranoid, but I worry about him in a region known for nut job religious racists. I realize that he is expressing concern for the hardship the good people in that area continue to face, but you have to be concerned about the nut jobs.

Hell, not too long ago a Justice of the Peace in Louisiana refused to marry an interracial couple. Hate and ignorance is alive and well in the south and as long as that hate and ignorance is perpetuated in families it will remain alive and well.
The Louisiana Justice of the Peace who refused to perform an interracial marriage was interviewed on CBS News Monday morning and tried to explain his actions.

Bardwell explained that he had seen "countless" interracial couples where the children were rejected by family members, and he didn’t want to see that happen again. He defended himself by pointing out that he did not prevent the couple from getting married; he merely would not do it himself. Asked if he would refuse to perform a marriage for any other reason, he said no, but then corrected himself.

Ida Slapter, if you want to discuss politics it is a good idea to be informed.

I have confidence in our Secret Service. He needs to go to let the people in the Gulf know he’s with them and cares.

Sight seeing throughout travel. Is there a web site that can help?

I am traveling from Louisiana to Oregon and want to know of any good places to stop for sight seeing on the way.
I am going by the mapquest.com

http://www.tripadvisor.com/ is a great site. I have personally contributed quite a bit especially for Oregon, where I live. I could tell you a lot about what to do in Oregon/Washingon, but it sounds like that is your destination so you might already have plans here. SO, I would use Trip Advisor to look at other places along the way. If I were you, I would definitely stop in Denver/Boulder CO and ESPECIALLY Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. I went to school in Boulder and it is absolutely beautiful. Also, Branson Missouri is fun in a strange way if you could stop there. There is a RIpley’s Believe It Or Not Museum that is great there as well as all the other typical Branson stuff.
