Choose one of two evening start times for your dinner cruise and head to Toulouse Street in the French Quarter to board the beautiful Steamboat Natchez. 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. Enjoy the boat’s atmospheric decor, such as the vintage engine room and megaphone.
Take a stroll along the deck as the Natchez begins the 2-hour float 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, the buffet might include anything from cornmeal‐crusted fish to cheesy penne pasta. Top it off with Natchez’s signature bread pudding accompanied by coffee and tea. Read on to the Itinerary section below for a sample menu. (Menu is subject to change)Your evening cruise ends back at the departure point in the French Quarter.
The boat experience was great, the music was good and the food was extremely good, It was a hot evening , and the breeze off the water felt good. I was disappointed in the service we received from Viator, They booked four tours and three of the four tours, when we got their, they did not have us scheduled for the event, Lucky I have my vouchers with us and were were able to schedule for another time, I would never book anything through Viator again,
What a beautiful and wonderful way to spend an evening! From the crew to the delicious food, everyone and everything was perfect. The crew was first class and the views from the boat were spectacular. I will definitely refer this to others! Many thanks to the crew for making this a special night for me and my girlfriend, it was very romantic!
Amazing trip on the Mississippi River, Jazz Band was amazing!! Commentator was very knowledgeable and gave a lot of information about things of interest.
Very enjoyable trip!
We so much enjoyed the cruise and buffet dinner , which was deliciously prepared. The only thing I would wished was that the cruise would have lasted another hour or two.
I have 3 fickle teenage daughters, and they enjoyed the boat, tour, food and history lesson, as well as myself! Was a beautiful evening for a boat ride up and down the Mississippi River. I would definitely recommend this for all ages!
The cruise down the Mississippi was enjoyable. The Jazz band was the best. Since it had rained that afternoon we were met with 3 different rainbows which made the cruise that more special.

This was a great tour, but definitely take this tour during the day as opposed to night. You cannot see much at night.
Loved the riverboat dinner cruise. We had a group of about 20, great way to celebrate a special occasion with delicious food, lively music and fantastic friends. The Big Easy, all lit up at night, was a beautiful sight from the river. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
A real must do in New Orleans. The music was great as was the buffet. Recommend selecting the earlier seating for dinner so you can enjoy the waterfront. would have liked to have somewhere to sit instead of standing in line for over 30 minutes while waiting to board I have a bad back.
We really enjoyed the cruise. The Dukes of Dixieland were fantastic entertainment. The meal was great. The cruising on the Mississippi was great and the captain's commentary of the history was enlightening. Do it all over again.
