    The trip is great as we'll S the food served, although there was not a great variety of food choices for a buffet. The music was awesome! The service though, was not as we expected. Servers did not look very happy in their jobs and would not pay much attention to the customers.

    New Orleans Paddle Wheel Cruise

    Really enjoyed the cruise. Nice view of sunset over the river changed into great night view of the city. Purchase of tickets through Tripshock was easy and at reduced price vs. actual vendor web site.

    Best Night we had in Nola!

    My boyfriend and I decided we wanted to do something besides hit Bourbon Street while we were in Nola. We decided to book a dinner cruise on the Creole Queen because neither one of us had been on a paddleboat before. We are so glad we did! Booking was super easy. The hardest thing about the entire trip was parking. You should def park at the Hilton and just pay the $20 for parking in the parking garage. It was so much easier to do that then to do valet or try to park in the lots on the other side of the Aquarium. And it was closer. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR VOUCHER PRINTED when you go to check in at the booth. You should really get there an hour early. Watching the sun dip down was really beautiful, even waiting in line. Because we got there early, we boarded early and got to eat early. That was really nice because as the boat filled up, so did the buffet line. The jazz band that's on board is wonderful and such a hoot. You can tip them trumpet player and take pics with him. He's a sweet man, Our server, Victoria, took excellent care of us. My glass was never empty and she even helped us look for my boyfriend's sunglasses when he lost them. Victoria was great as was every other employee we encountered. Everyone was pleasant and had a smile! You couldn't help but enjoy yourself and smile back! The food is buffet style and wasn't bad at all. Lots of traditional Nola style dishes. My fave was the beef brisket! The view from the deck on top is breathtaking. The colors that changed all around us just made Nola have a whole new look to me. My only complaint is that the cruise wasn't longer! We will def be back!

    New Orleans Trip

    Outstanding. My wife and I loved everything about this package but the amount of time spent on The Mississippi River. Two hours wasn't long enough. Another hour would have made this trip perfect. Will book again.

    Creole Queen - New Years Eve Cruise

    Found tickets much cheaper using Tripshock. Cruise was a lot of fun. Food only so so but having an open bar was a plus! Very mixed crowd but we enjoyed it!
