    We had a great experience. The tour was historically informative and the music was great. The only drawback was the food. It was great food but it wasn’t Cajun food. But other than that it met all of our expectations. Def worth the money.

    Positives: unique, pretty view, party atmosphere, good food, fun time with friends and colleagues, really great server who sang us a gospel song at our request. Negatives: cumbersome, cumbersome ticketing process, long wait in hot sun on board, credit cards not accepted on board, average, sporadic music. I was REALLY disappointed in the music. It just wasn’t very good, but we didn’t even hear any most of the time. Result: a very expensive buffet dinner of unremarkable quality.
