Well run. Very informative. We did the cruise with lunch include. It's a buffet style. All the food is prepared on board. Surprisingly good food. Well worth it. With fantastic views of the city.

Fortunately for us the weather was good for November as we had to sit outside because we hadn’t booked a meal. The narrative was good on the way down the river but not much to see. As only one of two steam boats left now,...More

We took the Dinner Jazz Cruise because we wanted the jazz experience. We weren’t expecting haute cuisine, however the food was disgusting, in fact I would say inedible. However, loved hearing the facts about the river and the amazing views. I wouldn’t miss a trip...More

Let me start by saying that the entertainment aboard the Natchez was top notch and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was the highlight of our voyage. The overall experience, however, was sorely lacking. The food aboard the Natchez was simply not good. Not only was...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
