    Food poisoning

    My boyfriend and I got terribly sick with food poisoning. Had us in our room all Friday night and most of yesterday. Wishing for a refund to make up some of this not so amazing trip so far. :(

    A “must do” attraction in New Orleans

    This cruise is an absolutely wonderful evening out on the river. The band creates a soft jazzy atmosphere, the ship is beautiful, the view is amazing of other ships and the city skyline, the route results in smooth sailing, and the food is very good and sure to have something to please everyone in your group. We loved it! My only constructive criticism is to serve drinks right away. We sat for 25 minutes waiting for someone to come to our table and only half the tables were full. You aren’t allowed to go to the bar and buy your own drink. That was a minor inconvenience and the rest of the evening was perfect! Definitely do this while there.
