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.
Your river cruise ends back at the departure point in New Orleans with plenty of time to sightsee!

My parents were visiting from out of town and we wanted to leave them with some great memories of their trip to New Orleans. This 2 hour excursion was probably the highlight of the trip. The narrator gave some great historical information, the food was great and the boat ride was just a great time. I highly recommend taking this excursion if you come to New Orleans.
A wonderful experience from dockside to emgine room. Sounds and sights that will stay with us forever. GREAT commentary full of information. Highly recommended for all ages!
It was great!!!
Very affordable dinner cruise. We drove to New Orleans for a day, and decided to try this cruise. The jazz band was vey nice, and the food was really good. They even discussed the historical places, and their significance to the city as we cruised by it.
This cruise was a birthday gift for my husband he was pleasantly surprised and the cruise was EXCELLENT. It ended up being a rainy day but that did not stop us from having a wonderful time. The food was excellent and the tour of the steamboat was great. We can't wait to do it again. THANKS!!!!
great trip, we had the afternoon lunch buffet and with the exception of the fried alligator everyone seems to serve it was worth it. we enjoyed the sights of the Mississippi along with the history narration given onboard. i would do it again.
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!
