A very enjoyable two hour cruise to see the local scenery and learn about the history of the Mississippi.
The food was great. We had a great, relaxing time, and learned some of the history of New Orleans as well.
The boat was very interesting, and enjoyable. The food was not that good. Rather blah, except for the bread pudding which was very good.
We enjoyed learning about the steamboat's history and the historical sites along the route. The New Orleans harbour is not very attractive but being out on the river was pleasant on a warm day. The food was very enjoyable. Worth doing.
The weather was fine but chilly in early March, so there was an initial scramble for the inside seating, which was mainly used by people who had booked lunch. Lunch looked very substantial, including the usual rice and beans but we were glad we hadn't chosen to have lunch as we would never have done it justice. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and we were encouraged to look all around the boat including the engine room. There was commentary throughout the trip, which was informative. Once the sun came out and it warmed up everyone migrated to the outside of the boat and it was nice to view New Orleans harbour from this position. We thought it was good value.
we had a good time the food and entertainment was great. i would recommend this cruise to anyone i know that's going to new orleans
We reserved the sunday brunch cruise so we had our table waiting for the 6 of us. The food 4 stars.
If your into how things work the steam engine room working that paddle is a must.
the jazz band 4 stars but you had to stay close to hear them.
If you plan on sitting outside it gets windy so bring a jacket.
For a first time visitor to NOLA, the Natchez is definitely something to put on the 'to do' list.
The food was delicious, the staff very friendly. The narrated story enlightening. You have to use a bit of imagination as you travel up and down the Mississippi however. The views aren't much, but the River itself is amazing. The Natchez is definitely part of the ambience of New Orleans and shouldn't be missed.
A nice way to spend a couple of hours if the weather is good. The scenery isn't particularly pretty, but its very interesting to learn about the businesses that depends on this enormous river.
Enjoyable trip and reasonable food for a tour boat. Tour knowledge was well presented and very informative. Good overall value for the price!
A very relaxing trip down the Mississippi. Didn't take the meal option as I preferred to sit outside and watch the passing scenery
