I came aboard on Sept 8, 2016. The jazz dinner cruise was fantastic. The food was great, the music was great, and the staff was extremely helpful and polite. When I am in town again I will be booking another cruise with the Creole Queen. Thank you for the hospitality.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

I use a walker and I am unable to climb stares. This tour was able to accommodate me by having a stare lift. The service was friendly the food was great and the jazz band was the best ever. My wife and I had a very enjoyable cruise on the Creole Queen Jazz Cruise. I recommend that, when visiting New Orleans to take this tour.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

The paddle boat dinner and jazz tour was a good time. Good value for the money spent. I highly recommend this! My ticketing experience did not go well. I booked two different reservations about three weeks apart. The first reservation did not appear on the ticket agent's manifest; the second one did. After several minutes of confusion and a couple of phone calls the ticket agent made, I had my tickets in hand. Very tense and uncomfortable feeling to start the evening.Verified TripShock!

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.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

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.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
