Overview
Travel like the residents of New Orleans did decades ago when you step aboard the historic Natchez steamboat on this Mississippi River cruise. After you depart from Natchez Harbor, listen to entertaining commentary on the sights that pass by as you stroll the expansive deck, enjoy live jazz music in the main dining area, and check out the churning paddle wheel in action. Upgrade to include a lunch buffet.
Highlights
  • Ride an historic steamboat on the Mississippi River 
  • Book ahead to guarantee your spot on this popular river cruise 
  • Listen to informative commentary from the captain 
  • Upgrade to include a traditional New Orleans lunch buffet 
  • Listen to live jazz music as you watch the scenery pass
What to Expect
Choose a morning or afternoon departure time at booking, and then make your way to New Orleans’ French Quarter on the day of your trip to exchange your voucher for tickets at the kiosk at Toulouse Street.  Once on board, explore the historic boat's vintage accents, such as the period decorations and the museum-quality engine room. Stroll the decks to take in the Mississippi River scenery and views of the city of New Orleans passing by. For the journey out, find a seat indoors to listen to live jazz in the main dining area, or opt to sit outside for narration on passing historic sites, such as Chalmette Battlefield. The return journey features music throughout the boat. If you opt to upgrade to the lunch option, your journey includes a buffet lunch, made up of traditional New Orleans fare. End up back at your original starting point, with plenty of time left in the day to continue exploring the French Quarter or beyond.

Booking was easy and the location was easy to find. We got there ahead of time as requested but had to wait a little longer than expected whilst they offloaded the previous trip. A lady played several tunes on the steam whistles/ pipes which was very pleasant and indeed
