Our experience was wonderful!

What a fun time

about 1 month ago
The food was delicious and the seating very elegant. Was surprised there was live music on the top deck and the bottom where dinner was. Had good conversations with other passengers and enjoyed a mini cruise on the Mississippi. Would recommend this as a nice alternative to hitting the French Quarters or Bourbon Street.

Great food and service

From the time we stepped aboard, the crew was nothing but nice and accommodating. We really enjoyed both bands, one in the dining area and outside. The buffet had great options and was delicious.
