The Steamboat Natchez is taking some time off, but her sister vessel will be taking her place. This tour offers a whole evening of New Orleans fun aboard a paddle-wheel riverboat. Enjoy unique views of the city without having to deal with crowded streets, and save time and money by combining a cruise with a night of live jazz and Creole-style dinner (if option selected).

What to Expect
Your cruise takes off from the docks near Toulouse Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Board your ship up to an hour before your departure time. The paddle-wheel riverboat is one of the last of its kind in the area. Once out on the Mississippi River, relax on the outdoor deck or inside in the cabin, and take in views of the city in the distance. As you float down the river, enjoy jazz music performed by the Grammy-nominated Dukes of Dixieland. If you’ve upgraded your cruise ticket to include dinner, your tableside meal includes a variety of Creole-style food. The bread pudding is a popular dessert choice. Your cruise ends back in the French Quarter. If you’re looking for something to do afterward, there’s a booming nightlife scene nearby.
