Went here on the 2.30 sailing. We decided not to book the buffet lunch, and there were opportunities to buy light bites on board along with both alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, so we certainly were not hungry. Sat on the left hand side on...More

This was amazing. You ride on the last stream driven boat, on the Mississippi. Too watch the sun go down.
The boat was well equipped. Good food, and plenty to drink.
Looked around the engine room, and watched the paddle being driven.

We went with another couple and found this attraction to be exactly what you would expect! We chose it over it's competitor based on ratings and also because it is the last authentic STEAM boat (the other runs on diesel...). The views were spectacular, the...More
Myself, my wife and one of my daughters decided to book this steamboat for our short cruise down the Mississippi. We chose to have the buffet lunch, which was nothing special, but ok.

My husband and I had a wonderful time on the famous Natchez Steamboat. We had the buffet lunch which was definitely yummy and convenient for the price. We loved learning more about the city and the Mississippi River. The engine room is a must see,...More
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
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
If you are into colorful natural occurrences, the evening cruise gives you the ability to venture down the Mississippi while being able to view the beautiful sunset! Regardless, the historical content is the same, of course... More
