This is the last steamboat left. The others can say they are paddle wheels but not steamboat. Cruise took you down the Mississippi by the Dominos sugar plant. Oil refineries and the site of the battle of New Orleans. There was music and a buffet...More

Spend your money in other things in New Orleans. Aa trip down the river shows mostly industry.. the narrator did a good job... I thought the sites would be better and more scenic... I would do another tour.

Did the cruise and lunch. Cruise portion up the river was very informative but the return trip was just so so. The lunch portion was quite disappointing - ran out of food (chicken) even before they started serving - where was the pre-planning - guess...More

I went on the Natchez as part of a school trip with Middle School students. The food on the buffet was mediocre and there was nothing that would appeal to middle school-aged children, such as any kind of chicken, French fries, burgers, pizza. The potatoes...More

You’re basically going up and down the river. Definitely go check out the engine room, it’s the most interesting part of the excursion. The captain does give a lot of interesting overall info on the ship.

All of the staff members we encountered were above and beyond friendly. The food was ok and the drinks were great. I felt like there were far to many guests on the tour though. It was a nice cruise with good facts about the city.

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
