Great cruise and lunch! Not expensive, variety of food, good fish, musicians with jazz knowledge and steamboat music at departure... The manager talked with us!
This is truely the only way to travel in New Orleans. We chose the cruise only option without any food. It gave us the flexibility to move around the boat and take the photos we wanted when the time suited us. The day was overcast and it did rain a little while we were travelling but it did not spoil the day for us. Some of the shoreline can be a bit "industrial" but overall the trip was well worth the money. The highlight for us was actually before we boarded the boat. About 10 minutes before boarding starts someone "plays" the steam whistle organ on the top of the boat. It was spectacular to watch and really fun to listen too.
