Trip was great. The narrator was really good. Very interesting and well spoken. Added humor too which was great. Food was very good, better than some of the restaurants we tried. We spent the time inside since it was rainy outside. Everyone working on the boat was very friendly too. Great experience.

Lunch misleading guide was funny
Location was confusing when using Google maps. Having to get actual ticket from booth confusing or not known. While food was hot, it was a carb feast. Said we were having gumbo it was some corn not chowder...not soup based just corn served in a bowl.

Creole Queen
It was very educational which I loved and the scenery on the ship and outside was beautiful . The historian was informative and funny . The food was ok . The only thing I would prefer is having the customers get activities while on the boat so people can be more engaged . Nevertheless overall was good. I’ll definitely be back for the late night jazz cruise

Very enjoyable and informative, both at the historic battlefield and the story about Katrina.

Social distancing impossible!
Why sell more tickets than you have seats during Covid? Blocking off benches with distancing signs that were completely ignored, no staff to reinforce, people looking miserable because others sat next to them on those benches... the process of getting off the boat both times was awful-absolutely no recommended distancing, no process that would even encourage it. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, and the price was definitely not right. Terrible experience.

Well worth the time
The boat was beautiful. And the gentleman that did the historical commentary was fantastic. He made it interesting as well as amusing. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting New Orleans.

Fun Experience
The experience was great even though it rained the whole trip. Food was also good. Would have liked a little more information up front as to when the food was ready so we would have had more time to explore the fort and to enjoy the trip. The historian was hilarious...highlight of the trip.

Food was Amazing
We opted for the cruise with lunch and it did not disappoint! The Captain was very knowledgeable and shared great facts as we cruised along the Mississippi river. We were served Jambalaya, Cajun shrimp pasta, red beans and rice and some corn. There was also a Cesar salad and bread pudding. Will recommend to anyone.

Enjoyable cruise
This was an enjoyable cruise. The guide was knowledgeable with some humor added in. I would have preferred to have had a longer time on the steamboat. We were on he boat for an hour and at the battle site for an hour. Also would have liked to have had more history abut hte city on the return trip from the battle site.

Best River Tour Ever
Charles, our guide/narrator was EXCELLENT! Home-grown, passionate, funny, well informed, personable….SUPER Liked that he divided the history into 2 parts….going down to the Chalmette plantation (Battle of New Orleans & La history) and back (Katrina aftermath & recovery) The Creole Queen is a great vessel with plenty of seating and walkabouts; nice drink menu; spring is the best time to go we think….PERFECT!
