Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Food was very tasty - jazz band was phenomenal - perfect way to see beautiful night time cityscape of New Orleans!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Wow! It was amazing, romantic, delicious, informative, historical, all in one. The service was fantastic, the photos they take of you before going on board are high quality and beautiful color, and to purchase the package was very reasonable, it really surprised us. The Band was the world famous Dukes of Dixie, and sounded wonderful! There was plenty of room to stretch your legs without feeling like cattle, even the the boat was very full, we had lots of places to sit by ourselves to take photos and just be alone.
