What You Can Expect
Stroll the deck as the Natchez begins its 2-hour float along the Mississippi River. Then find a seat in the cabin or outside, where you can admire unobstructed views of the striking ‘Crescent City’ shoreline and enjoy live jazz music. Learn some riverside history as you pass sites like the Chalmette Battlefield, where the famous pirate and privateer Jean Lafitte teamed with Andrew Jackson to defeat British invaders in the Battle of New Orleans.
Purchase an optional buffet lunch to sample an array of sumptuous Louisiana fare from cornmeal-crusted fish and red beans and rice to Natchez’s signature bread pudding and fresh fruit. (Full menu included below). Coffee and tea are included with your lunch, or you may purchase adult beverages.

Loved the historical information, the lunch was delish and the people on board were very happy, helpful, and knowledgeable. Had a great time!
The harbour cruise was thoroughly enjoyable and would definitely recommend it.
A very informative and relaxing cruise. Well worth the time and cost.
Everything was great! We had lunch on the boat and it was delicious. With so many people on the cruise I thought it would be standing room only but we found a comfortable spot to watch the lazy river go by. We enjoyed the cruise!
Nice ,relaxing, and informative.
excellent and calm ride with great and lively music, we just wish there was a bit more narration and a further ride up the river
Viator info was helpful. Easy to exchange our voucher for ticket they had even told us which window we should use at the ticket booth. Natchez trip was a highlight on our 5 week cruise from UK.
First class from start to finish, Did it for the food and the Jazz. Not the views from the boat.
Wonderful experience and excellent service and beautiful steamboat.
Great value. My wife and I had taken the VIP dinner cruise a couple of days earlier. As we were there in February that entire trip had been pretty much after dark. So we booked a daytime tour to see what had been hidden in the dark. We were lucky enough to catch a sunny day in late February with the temperature in the low 70's. It was a most enjoyable couple of hours sitting in the sun and watching the sights and traffic on the river. Would definitely do this again.
