    Should review how u get seating for music

    Had a good time, However, If u bought a meal, it was difficult to get upstairs to get a seat for the music. The people who came on board and didn't pay for eating,got all the seats, when the people who bought meals were left standing.

    I was very disappointed with this cruise. The food was not good and the band did not play jazz. I wanted to do this cruise so I could get the truth essence of New Orleans and it didn't do that with the food or the music. Wish I could get a refund at least for the food and music because the cruise part was good.

    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.
