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).

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 arrived on time to find the trip canceled through a mechanical fault on the boat, the girl at the desk booked us on her list for a refund which as yet we have not received. Very disappointing to say the least.

We loved everything about this cruise: the buffet dinner, the Dukes of Dixieland jazz band, the steam calliope as we were boarding and the tour of the steam and engine room. Best of all was cruising on the Mississippi for 2 hours in the evening.

Small bumps but great history
At the Whitney, our guide was very dry but knowledgeable. Learned a lot that you never will in any history class.
