What You Can Expect

Steamboat Natchez Jazz Dinner Cruise

Steamboat Natchez is one of the few true sternwheelers left plying the Mississippi river

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.

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

Great tour, we got there early and sat and watched the band. We booked second sitting for dinner, the food was excellent and plenty of it. I mentioned when booking it was our Anniversary and they had reserved a table for us. Take a coat as it does get very windy.
