    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.

    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!!!!

    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.

    Nice cruise

    We enjoyed being on the Creole Queen and found the staff friendly. We also enjoyed the live jazz band. If we were to do it again, we would not get the dinner included. Even though the beef, gumbo, and bread pudding were good, etc., there are just so many options for amazing food in NOLA that we likely missed out on a dinner elsewhere. Good food just does not equal amazing food. There isn’t too much to see at night, though the city lights are a nice backdrop, and the Mississippi was very calm. Overall, a good, one-time experience.

    Great Ride

    I have never done dinner on a boat. It was a nice experience. The buffet was a bit limited but it was a smooth ride from start to finish.
