My reservation had to be rescheduled due to the "hurricane" and it's a good thing we ended up getting to the dock early - the steamer departed less than 10 min after we boarded, when we were told it would be about 25 min later...More

My boyfriend and I did the dinner cruise Monday evening. Boarding time was 6pm. We got there around 6:15 and the first seating was already underway. The first seating has the advantage of eating while the boat is docked, so they can enjoy the live...More

We did the Sunday jazz brunch cruise, it was a great activity and our party enjoyed it tremendously, if you're looking for a great meal, don't eat on board. The bloody mary's are good though!

Tour this historic paddle boat, eat from a great buffet, drink at the bar and/or whilst enjoying the fine jazz band and cruise along the Mississippi.

And some nice views of downtown but that's about all. We didn't try the buffet so can't comment on that but thought the trip could have offered more in the two hours timeframe.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
