The calliope and steam horn took us back in time. The drinks were exceptional.
Great trip, everything was available to all passengers, drinks, food, listening to a live jazz band and a visit to the engine room. worth every penny / dollar. Definitely a steam boat. Great information / narrative given through out the cruise would recommend to all young or old.
It was a great way to learn the history of the area. Great time and would recommend
to ones going to the area.
I really enjoyed the cruise. It moves very slowly, of course, which my teenage boys were not thrilled about, but that is the nature of the boat. It was informative and relaxing. I would also recommend springing for the lunch. The food was delicious and well worth the small price.
Great trip,,we had a beautiful day,, guide was informative,, Bloody Mary Great!!
The Natchez cruise was great. I would recommend anyone traveling to New Orleans to take a cruise on the Natchez. It last 2 hours, and it is entertaining. We enjoyed the brunch, it was delicious.
For those drawn to the water, history buffs, fans of vessels and tradition, this is a must-do. Details like watching the captain give docking instructions via megaphone to the bridge from the bow, observing the goings-on in the engine room, and the onboard narration of the sights and history we're passing over the course of two hours. A fine jazz band played during the second half of the cruise, providing perfect accompaniment to the scenery. Note: you need to exchange your Viator digital voucher for paper tickets at the lighthouse-shaped ticket booth before boarding.

Entertaining cruise for 2 hours down the Mississippi River and back. The jazz orchestra was excellent and provided a relaxing background on the return portion. On the first portion, the narration was informative, but at times hard to hear. Unfortunately, while on our cruise the weather was unseasonably cold, so we spent the majority of our time inside, but the drinks were good and the food looked good we did not participate in the lunch option.
This was a great way to spend the afternoon. The ship's crew was especially friendly, including Gina the ship's hostess. One note of warning while in the area waiting to board...beware of the scammers out on the pier who just start polishing your shoes and then demand pay. They can be very pushy and aggressive.
Enjoyed the commentary on the way down and the jazz on the way back. Would recommend this trip. Lunch was offered, but we preferred to sit out on the deck and enjoy the beautiful day and the scenery.
