    Beautiful cruise along the river

    Went on this trip with some friends and really had a great time. The crew was helpful when getting on the boat as well as helping us get seated and in suggesting the best table in the dining room! We enjoyed the food and the music quite a bit and the drinks mixed up were delicious! Our waiter was very attentive, even with the busy room, and even found us up on the top deck after dinner was over to make sure that we did not need any more refreshments! Definitely going to do this again next time I am in town and recommending it to my friends and family!

    I would not recommend this cruise to anyone.

    The creole Jazz cruise was a waste of $. There was no tour of the river per say. All the crew did was take a leisurely cruse up river, remain stationary for about an hour and return. There was no narration or pointing out of highlights. The jazz was good and the food was ok. Nothing special. Overall, I would rate this cruise as a rip-off.

    The trip is great as we'll S the food served, although there was not a great variety of food choices for a buffet. The music was awesome! The service though, was not as we expected. Servers did not look very happy in their jobs and would not pay much attention to the customers.

    New Orleans Paddle Wheel Cruise

    Really enjoyed the cruise. Nice view of sunset over the river changed into great night view of the city. Purchase of tickets through Tripshock was easy and at reduced price vs. actual vendor web site.
