    Fun and good food

    Nice to see a little of New Orleans by water, food was good for a buffet. Music is confined to small area with few seats, needs to be in bigger area for more people could enjoy.

    Lovely cruise!

    We weren't sure what to expect, but this was a lovely cruise down the Mississippi River! Very relaxing. We met some nice people and learned about this huge river. Do it if you are in New Orleans!

    You should do this at least once!!!!!!!!

    I always considered this a tourist trap and never went even though I have been to New Orleans at least 50 times! It's not!!!! We had a blast! We enjoyed the view, the ride was smooth, the information was interesting - saw things that I'd never seen in New Orleans. The food was better than I expected, the drinks were good and bartenders were friendly and fun and were expert cocktail craftsmen!

    Nice boat ride but skip dinner

    The cruise was a nice way to see a different view of the city. If we went again, we would probably opt for the day cruise. The dinner was not good. It was a buffet, and we were very rushed to eat. With all of the wonderful food in New Orleans, I would choose a different place to eat.

    Tourist attraction

    The steamboat ride was a pleasure. The staff on board were great. However, we signed up for the dinner also which was nothing special. The sides were boring in taste as well as the beef and pork loin. The desserts were extremely sweet. We have the impressi8the meals are outsourced at a kitchen and transported to the boat , then kept warm for many hours leaving the meal a disaster. The boatride with accompanying jazz band is enjoyable just skip the dinner.

    I am sorry if you did not enjoy the food. However, we do not outsource...all of our meals are cooked and made fresh in our galley on the boat. We appreciate your feedback and thank you for cruising with us!
