We had read and heard mixed reviews about this, but decided to book anyway - we were really glad we did. We took the evening cruise, with dinner (second sitting), on a Friday evening. We boarded about 30mins before departure (no waiting to get on...More

I just did the cruise and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the world go by. The boat was clean and there were ample places to sit up stairs and watch the world go by. It rained on the day of my trip but...More

Billed as A "Jazz ' Steamboat cruise up the Mississippi, we actually thought we would hear a jazz band! Sitting on the outside deck, we could hear nothing but the very boring and long talk of the Captain? Apparently the only music to be heard...More

Enjoyed the trip. Not as historical but interesting. The buffet was good. Loved the cane vinegerette. Jazz trio was very good. Everyone had a food time.

Jazz is wonderful. Trip takes you past rusted out docks and broken pylons. Food is pretty bland seasoning it with hot vs flavor. After we bought lunch tickets we learned there were sandwiches etc. to buy.

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

Street car is a great option. $3 for 24 hour pass. We took a PediCab through downtown to get there. Very romantic.
