Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Head to Toulouse Street in the French Quarter and board your beautiful riverboat. This paddlewheel ship — one of the last of its kind in New Orleans — will transport you back to the 19th century when ports bustled with produce-laden cargo ships, steamboats, and clandestine privateering.

Take a stroll along the deck as you begin the journey along the Mississippi River. Then have a seat in the cabin or on the outside deck, where you’ll get unobstructed views of the striking shoreline at dusk, and soak up some live jazz tunes from the Grammy-nominated Dukes of Dixieland, a true New Orleans-style band.

As for dinner, your tableside meal might include anything from chicken and sausage gumbo to cheesy penne pasta. Top it off with signature bread pudding accompanied by coffee and tea.

Your evening cruise ends back at the departure point in the French Quarter.

Please Note: The "starting from" price displayed is based on the cruise only option.

We went on New Year's Eve. The staff was wonderful. The food was much better than expected, and was quite good. The weather was poor (however, that was not the fault of the boat). Music was excellent as well. The only issue we had was that the dining room did not have many windows, so one could not really enjoy the view while eating dinner. Also, during COVID, the band is located in an upper bar area that is closed off to patrons. Accordingly, one could not really see them. Overall, however, the experience is worthwhile when one goes to NOLA.

A great cruise. Really enjoyed the the smaller crowds. They gave you more food than you could eat with dinner and it was good. Look forward to doing it again during the day.

The romance of a boat ride on the river and seeing all the amazing things about life on the water. Fireworks in the background by so many celebrating the new year and an amazing meal in the dining area room. Strolling around the deck after the meal was also a highlight, along with checking out the massive steam engines that power the paddle wheel that drives the boat. Great time and well worth the cost and effort to go.

The steamboat Jazz Cruise was amazing!!! From the view to the dinner everything was a great experience. Even our server for the night was great!! I would highly recommend. Also, if this is your first time on the water DON’T BE ALARMED!!! The ride was smooth and the waves are giving. So sit back and enjoy the view and the breeze.

The experience was great as far as it could be. Dinner was awesome. It rained, so deck time could have been better. COVID-19 locked the band away from any interaction, which kind of sucked, but is somewhat understandable.
