treated like a Queen !
The moment we arrived for the trip we were greeted and welcomed.
upon boarding we were shown our reserved seats both inside and outside the boat. The music was great and as this was our first night in the city it gave us a true meaning of New Orleans !
The buffet food was lovely. Lots of choice . The table service was excellent. we were able to walk around the boat easily as not too packed.
As we sailed up the river the operator gave us some history and local knowledge.
We got to meet the captain and get a personal tour of the ship including the engine room.
Our tour rep was nearby all the time ensuring we were having fun. The only problem was I would like it to be longer was just getting into the atmosphere !!!
This was a trip that we have always wanted to do and were not disappointed. From the point of booking to the actual trip communication and organisation was excellent. The engine room tour was vey interesting and informative. Food and entertainment was fab, we had the second sitting for dinner which personally I thought was much better as you didn't need to leave for other people to have their meal. We sat on the dock side of the steamboat as it is better views when the cruise commences. We have nothing but positive's to say about the whole experience and would like to thank all of the staff.
We had a great time from the very start. Yvonne was the greatest, she was extremely knowledgeable about everything and could not do enough for us. Starting at the head of the line and reserved tables was great. The free photos and gift bag with extras was a nice touch. She also gave us a private tour of the boat. Everyone should do this tour.

Excellent. They really look after you. Front of the queues for boarding and disembarkation. It was the captain who showed us around, not the first officer. We would certainly go on the tour again.
Absolute wonderful experience! Yvonne, our hostess was very charming and attentive to our comfort! The buffet was outstanding and the service as well! We enjoyed a two hour cruise with information provided about the scenery in our cruise area! The tour of the boat was also informative and worthwhile! You will thoroughly enjoy this Dinner Cruise!
We purchased the VIP package and have to say it was worth it. They really do treat you like VIP's.
The service, attention and all the extras was definately a "10". If anyone is interested in purchasing the VIP package, take the option of eating at the earlier seating. They give you this option when you board. We waited until the 7:45 pm seating and by the time we finished the "boat tour" at 8:10, there wasn't much food left on the buffet. They ran out of bread and some food items.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Right from the start they made us feel special! The food was great and the service was top notch. My son, his girlfriend and I had the best time and definitely rate this at the top of our list to do when in New Orleans. The VIP treatment was just that. So glad we took this tour.
The only thing missing was the red carpet, we had a great time and would recommend this to all our friends
Our Viator guide was outstanding ! She catered to us the entire trip, bringing us drinks before boarding and took us on a tour of the boat. The boat was very nice, the service was great and the food was excellent. If you've never been on a steamboat, its worth the experience
Everything was well planned and Yvonne our escort could not have been any nicer. Our expectations were exceeded and we would make it a point to use Viator on our next trip. Thank You.
This dinner cruise was excellent and the VIP treatment was greatly appreciated. We enjoyed getting on the boat before the big crowds, the tour of the engine room, the reserved table, and the quality service from all staff. The dinner was hot, delicious New Orleans cuisine by Chef Joey La Bella and our gracious tour hostess, Leigh Bongard, was one of the best we have ever had anywhere. She came early to greet us, helped us with all questions, and made sure that our tour was perfect. The final touch of the evening was the exciting, live Jazz music by the DUKES of Dixieland. We loved this tour and definitely would recommend it to others!
I didn't realize when I booked that this was the full on VIP experience with reserved tables inside and out, a shout out from the captain, and so much more. Everything completely exceeded expectations and the tour before the cruise with Yvonne was great.
This was the most fun tour. the personal attention and the reserved tables made this a night to remember. Yvonne was the perfect guide. Excellent!
We got to skip all lines - getting on the boat, for dinner, etc. We had a reserved table the whole time, which was important with the crowd. The service was gracious and the kids got to meet the captain and see the engine room working. Really special - even for our well traveled family.
