    Very nice Jazz Cruise

    We booked this cruise the day of sailing. We had a great time. The food was good and the musicians were terrific. There was a four man group playing the entire night at the buffet and a banjo player on the top deck.

    Dinner, Music, Cruise.

    I enjoyed the experience, though I think the cruise would have been better during the day when we could see the shore and where we were. The staff was great, as was the music, and the food was good. I would recommend it.

    We had a great time!

    The Dinner Jazz Cruise was great! I recommend it if your looking for something relaxing to do. Very relaxing and beautiful trip along the Mississippi river. Food was good and the music was great. The weather was bad the day we were to take this cruise but they called me and we were able to get a refund or reschedule for another day. We didn't have any problems getting on a few days later.

    Our cruise was wonderful! Excellent food, great atmosphere. Our waiter who served drinks was kinda messing up - but it was great other than that!

    Happy Times in Chicken Town

    Everything was rad. The food was dope, the band was fantastic, the staff was friendly, and the boat was nifty. It was a perfect atmosphere for my girlfriends birthday surprise and also our last night visiting the city before we flew home.

    Creole Queen Jazz Cruise with dinner buffet

    A great experience. The staff are very helpful getting on and off the boat. The food was good and the entertainment was great. Not much to see outside at night. Great view of New Orleans as you leave and return.

    Cruise plus dinner

    Great dinner. Unfortunately, because it got dark early (time of year) couldn't see anything on the Mississippi River. After dinner it was boring, other guests talking among themselves. Too cold to go outside. Not worth the money.

    Good food, not much scenery

    We took the cruise in late November, so it got dark quickly, limiting what could be seen from the boat. The food was pretty good, with a varied selection of typical New Orleans dishes. The music was "tolerable," to be kind to the musicians. Not bad, but definitely something that would be better experienced during days with longer daylight.
