I booked the Creole Queen when the Natchez was closed for a month. I was nervous when I made the reservation (had read mixed reviews) because I promptly got an email saying the date I requested was not available. I was told my paid ticket would be honored the day before. I got to the reservations window and there was... More

Sailed one evening with NTA friends on the Creole Queen. Great ride. The stuffed pork loin was outstanding.

I checked the Creole Queen web site before walking down to the boat. It wasn't convenient for me and I have a bad leg. When I got there, I discovered that they're closed for a month. There was a woman there selling other tours, and when I said that the web site implied the boat was running, she said that... More

The cruise was reasonably priced. The ship left from the dock across from Harrah's Casino on the river walk. This was a cruise to the battlefield that the Battle of New Orleans took place. The trip to the battlefield took about 30 minutes and was narrated by a very knowledgeable member of the staff. Visiting the battlefield would have been... More

The creole queen was the venue for the OSU Alumni Association tailgate for the Sugar Bowl. Atmosphere was good, drinks were decent, and food was okay. Would have liked to try a dinner cruise, but it was all booked. All in all, a good time and a good way to see the waterfront (although much of the scenery on our... More

Check sailing times as not all boats are running due the winter maintainence. We were lucky to be visiting during the bi-centenary of the Battle of New Orleans. The cruse down the river takes you so the battle fields. You have about 40mins to visit this monument. The boat is well equipped with toilets etc. food/ drinks can also be... More

We took the dinner cruise on Dec. 26th. The buffet was delicious with a good variety of New Orleans cuisine. Add in the Jazz Band, and we had a wonderful time.

I bought this off Groupon and I gave it 4 stars because of that. (Would have given less if I had paid full price.) We took the boat on a Sunday. Once we got on the boat, the guide was giving little tidbits over the speaker all the way to the battlefield. Some of them were interesting and some not... More

The boat was nice and in good repair. Select the side of the boat facing the dock as you board. That side of the river gets all the commentary. Don't go on a Sunday or Monday as there is no battlefield park ranger for those days and the visitor center is closed. Bring sunglasses. It was a relaxed afternoon and... More

We booked the evening cruise and buffet. I can't really say the cruise added anything to the evening as we left after 8 and it was dark so it was a case of seeing profiles and shadows rather than sights. In summer that part of this attraction would likely be worthwhile and far more interesting since we did go past... More
