    Creole Queen Jazz Cruise

    I was able to save 10% on the purchase of our tickets by ordering through Tripshock. I received both a text and email with my reservation info. I simply pulled it up on my phone and presented it to the ticket booth. Very simple and smooth transition. I would use them again.

    Jazz River Cruise

    We were with a large group and we had a wonderful time. However, my grandson purchased a ticket online and received a confirmation number but they would not honor it at the ticket booth. The band was WONDERFUL!!!!

    Fun activity

    We had a great time on this boat. The food was fantastic and so was the service. We didn’t take kids, this trip isn’t really appropriate for small ones, too many things they can get into. But overall great experience.

    Short cruise

    We have cruised on the creole queen about 13 times since the year 2000 every May for our anniversary. This cruise on May 5th 2018 was cut short due to fireworks on the river we did not cruise the allotted time that I paid for

    A fun evening aboard an authentic paddle steamer

    Travelling along the Mississippi in a paddle steamer on a beautiful spring evening, with a great New Orleans style buffet and live jazz band which we danced to, made for some happy memories. It may have been enhanced if we had had some information on what buildings we were looking at along the way.

    taken over by high school kids!

    With the exception of my wife and I there were only 3 other people at the dinner buffet part of the cruise. The rest was sold out to high school band kids! Luckily we arrived early and the maitre'd who was very attune to our unhappiness ushered us in quickly and we were able to get our dinner started before being overrun with teenagers. While this was appreciated, we did not enjoy having to rush thru dinner. We have raised our children, one of whom was also a band member,but the planned events when they were in high school were exclusive to the group. This "outing" for that size of a group should not have done with a regular event. The ship was virtually taken over by them. The small deck that the band played on had the rest of the people who just came for the jazz cruise and not... read more
