Overview
Steamboats played a major role in the 19th century on the Mississippi River, and this tour offers a whole evening of New Orleans fun aboard a paddle-wheel steamboat. Enjoy unique views of the city without having to deal with crowded streets, and save time and money by combining a cruise with a night of live jazz and Creole-style dinner (if option selected).
Highlights
  • See unique New Orleans from the Mississippi River 
  • Get your culture fix with onboard, live jazz music
  • Add a Creole-style dinner to avoid the hassle of crowded restaurants
  • Convenient French Quarter departure point near other key sights
What to Expect
Your cruise takes off from the docks near Toulouse Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Board your ship up to an hour before your departure time. The paddle-wheel steamboat, Steamboat Natchez, is one of the last of its kind in the area. Once out on the Mississippi River, relax on the outdoor deck or inside in the cabin, and take in views of the city in the distance. As you float down the river, enjoy jazz music performed by the Grammy-nominated Dukes of Dixieland. If you’ve upgraded your cruise ticket to include dinner, pile your plate full of Creole-style food from the buffet table. The bread pudding is a popular dessert choice. Your cruise ends back in the French Quarter. If you’re looking for something to do afterward, there’s a booming nightlife scene nearby.

We really enjoyed our relaxing travels and commentary of the Mississippi River. The music was very entertaining, a fun thing to do in New Orleans.

I thought the food was ok, nothing to brag about. The staff was great & a great place to meet people of all locations. It was a cool night so bring a sweater just in case. The jazz band was good & got to explore the boat & gift shop.
