Went for the VIP experience and it was worth it. Captain Steve gave us a tour of the engine room and the history of the boat. Girls from the tour agency were great. Friendly helpful and their service was great. Food was very tasty and a lot of it. On the VIP experience you get your food first and avoid the long lines. Bananas Foster yumm. The goody bag to take home was the final touch. The souvenior picture, a cd of the dixieland bank cookbooks spices. Just gret....
My husband and I purchased the VIP Steamboat Natchez Jazz Cruise Dinner in a June. The entire experience was perfect. From the hostess, to the captain, to the food, and the amazing jazz music, this VIP experience is worth every penny. We ate at the early 6:15PM dinner, which allowed us to enjoy the evening listening to jazz music on the cruise back to the dock. You also receive a bag of items, including photos and other memorabilia from the experience. If this is a once in a lifetime experience, pay the extra money and enjoy the VIP treatment and service.
We did many things during our first visit to New Orleans, but I have to say, this was the highlight of our trip. I would highly recommend upgrading to the VIP package because you will be treated like royalty. I have to give a HUGE and very heartfelt shout out to Taylor, who went above and beyond for us, even when some elderly people in our group got a bit cranky. He was amazing and I wished I thanked him more than I did. We were seated on the ship first and given champagne while the others boarded the ship, then we had a tour of the ship by the extremely friendly Captain. After that, we were seated in the dining room, and had jumbo shrimp cocktail and were allowed to go up to the buffet first, before the crowds came in. Lastly, we had dessert outside on the deck while watching the beautiful lights of New Orleans pass by. Everything was just wonderful, and we were even given lovely souvenirs upon leaving the ship. This was a truly memorable experience we will never forget.
The VIP tour is really worth it. Private accompagnateur, treated us like royalty. Three table reserve for us, buffet service first. Really superb experience
We really enjoyed this. The music and the food were very good. We are glad that we paid the extra for the VIP tickets, as we were able to board the boat early and we had a reserved table. We were treated like VIPs! The Captain gave us a private tour. It was a very special evening.
We did the VIP experience and it was great. We had personalized attention from the time we boarded until we disembarked. It was well worth the extra cost. The ship is a one of a kind and the cruise was great. We will do it again when we are in New Orleans.
Adding the VIP portion to the cruise was worth it. It allowed early boarding and seating for dinner a shrimp cocktail with 6 large shrimp head of the line for the buffet and a personal waitress who kept track of our whereabouts and ensured we had everything we needed or wanted from the open bar. Go hungry!
A personal tour of the boat was provided, with access to several areas normally restricted for guests, and most importantly, it allowed us to disembark first with a nice bag of gifts. The Natchez is one of two remaining steam paddle wheel boats in the country. The boat was constructed in the 70's, but the steam engine and all the all the drive machinery is 92 years old, and kept in perfect working condition. It's something to see in New Orleans.
L'accès VIP permets certains privilèges comme l'entrée dans le bateau accélérée, une belle photo souvenir offerte, un tour de tout le navire avec le capitaine, une table réservée sur un lieu génial, des coupes de champagne, quelques souvenirs offerts... bref tout y était pour passer une soirée parfaite.
