The boat ride was very relaxing. The food was great. The bartender down stairs was trying to mislead us and cost us more money.

Well, for starters.. it’s a beautiful idea for us tourists folks. The food and the southern hospitality was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! The staff wore masks. They were kind and sweet. The food was bomb. I actually came for the food. The view was beautiful. STORY TIME: We came to NOLA for my baby sisters 21st birthday. As we were coming back from the stop that we had made, my sisters RED champion bucket hat flew off her head. We were sitting on the very top floor all the way in the back. As it flew off, we tried to catch it but unfortunately it flew over board. As we run to go see where the hat went. It had found its way on the ledge of the back of the boat, while in motion the hat was just chilling. We prayed and hoped that it wouldn’t fall off. We get back to the dock or the port where we got on at, and Thank God the hat was still there. I asked The host (the guy over the intercom) to ask if anyone could please get my sisters hat. My sister got a chance to speak with the captain, who was very sweet and adamant about getting her hat. A few minutes later before we were able to safely get off the boat, there was a guy, an older gentleman, that saved the day. We forgot to get his name. But if you’re seeing this.. THANK YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH for saving my sisters 21st birthday!!!!! Everyone clapped and cheered as she had the red at in her hand. Thank you for everyone that was involved. The awesome people that were there helping us and making sure that the hat stayed right where it was supposed to be. Everyone!!! AWESOME 5 STARS !!!!!
