Everything about this cruise was fun! The waitress was funny and personable, the food was incredible,even by New Orleans standards and the lively band played almost non-stop.
Got to meet the Captain and Chief Engineer who were both "salty" and welcoming.
Don't miss this adventure on your next trip to New Orleans!
The Jazz Band was superb, of very high quality and very entertaining. (amazing really in open air at the stern of a paddle boat). We also enjoyed the preparation steam calliope music which preceded the excursion. The food and ambience on the boat were quite good. The night sailing was long enough and created a soothing rhythm. We did not like being forced to submit to a photo( later on pricey sale).
What a wonderful way to celebrate the last night of our trip! We dined on a delicious meal while enjoying the jazz band playing in the background. Couples danced to the lively music and carried on conversations while toasting with a variety of drinks available at the bar. The twinkling skyline ow New Orleans was visible from the deck as we took our 2 hour cruise along the Mississippi. It was a magical night worth repeating on our next visit.
Went with five other ladies and loved it! Even better than we expected!
The crew started making sure everyone was well taken care of, as we boarded the boat. Nice, friendly staff, who made the cruise even more enjoyable. The dinner was well organized with little waiting. The food was great, and the entertainment was first class. I would highly recommend the Natchez cruise. The only change I would make next time would be to take the lunch cruise, or dinner cruise during months with extended daylight.
This was a beautiful cruise, the food was buffet style but there was lots of it and the night sky line of the city was brilliant.
Had a great night cruising the Mississippi.The service was very good and an excellent meal was included.I was however disappointed with the Dukes of Dixieland Jazz Band as I thought they did not play long enough during the meal..Overall I would recommend this tour.
What a fun outing! We chose to catch dinner at a nearby restaurant and then board the Steamboat instead of paying the extra for the dinner addition. This was a great way to see the city, the river, and the beautiful evening lights and ambiance of New Orleans. The Dukes of Dixieland Jazz Band were fabulous! You couldn't help tapping your feet. I would recommend taking a jacket or sweatshirt. The cross winds of the river caught us a little unprepared. Luckily the Steamboat Gift Shop on board had sweatshirts for sale.
was a great experience. Food was great and the Natchez is a piece of history
I only did the evening cruise as I was on my own, loved sitting outside and listening to the Dukes of Dixieland.
Food was very tasty - jazz band was phenomenal - perfect way to see beautiful night time cityscape of New Orleans!
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.
