Band will put you to sleep
Aug 2021 • Couples
Please hire a real local Jazz band!! Wtf!

Band was horrible. I would have bought more drinks but fell asleep to the old white men crying into the microphone with banjo in the background. NOT A “JAZZ” CRUISE!

On a good note, food wasn’t bad, and all staff was very nice and attentive. I imagine the service staff could have played better music then the half dead band they had! Come on guys!

Should be described as Pirate Cruise. Thieves on the high seas.
Aug 2021 • Friends
It is very appropriate that these people were wearing masks. It should be part of their uniform. This experience is very expensive in comparison to the Natchez lunch cruise, and for all that money the only beverage included was water. Two Cokes were $19.00 plus tax, fruit punch cocktail was $24.00 plus tax for two, and coffee or tea $10.00 plus tax for two.
These people are Pirate thieves.

Not what expected
Don’t waste your money - we opted for the dinner jazz cruise for our anniversary, which was a bust!

Food was good however the entertainment provided by the jazz bands was not! The music was o lot heard on the level where the jazz band played. The ambiance was dated and was in need of refurbished.

Jazz band was horrible

The food and boat ride was ok.... This cruise is not the jazz cruise you expect. The jazz groups need to update to more modern jazz groups. The jazz is Win Dixie music. It was old.

Hello! I am sorry to hear about your negative experience. While we do have Dinner available, there are a limited amount of spots that can be sold to ensure social distancing. A la carte options are available to purchase on board by visiting one of our bartenders. We hope to see you in the future!

Great Sunset
Perfect way to end our weekend trip. Get there early to get a table. The sunset is beautiful on the way back. Dress is casual not dressy like the website says. Jazz band was great.

Not transferable!
Jul 2021 • Couples
I purchased River Boat Jazz Cruise with the dinner for $168. My wife didn't feel well the day of the cruise so we called to cancel. They told us we had 1 year to transfer the ticket to another cruise. The next day I tried to have it transferred to the history cruise which was about $100 cheaper. They told me I couldn't transfer it to a cheaper cruise and it had to be the same cruise (jazz cruise). I asked them to do that but they refused because the jazz cruise had no dinner options available, only regular seats at the cheaper price. I told them I didn't mind taking the cheaper seat (better than nothing, right?) but they refused to do the transfer. Too much of a hassle and I'm out $168. Don't bother.

Don't do it. The band was terrible and NOT a New Orleans JAZZ band. They had trouble with the sound system. The drinks were watered down. Thier seats need painting and cushions. The whole boat needs to be refurbished. Not worth the cruise or the dinner!!
