Took the creole queen only because the Natchez doesnt do the Battlefileds tour (Battle of New Orleans) lovely old steamboat.....couldnt stop thinking of Mickey Mouse and steamboat Mickey! They take you to the battle of New Orleans, about 40 mins then they head back, didnt have lunch or dinner.....just wanted the tour and it was worth it.

Originally booked to go on the Natchez. Unfortunately it was cancelled, so my wife and I decided we still wanted the experience. What a disappointment. No welcome from a MC when we arrived. The food was only labelled when you went up to the buffet. No explanation of origins of each dish. Drinks were slow getting to us, only arriving... More

The buffet is good the besties were the corn muffin, the desert which was bread pudding and I do not eat meat but my mom and brother loved it. The tour on cruise is the best part waiters are always offering drinks while we enjoy the ride and view.

we did both the natchez and the creole queen. there are advantages to both but the queen has a destination about 30 minutes downriver - the chalmette battlefield, where a rabble beat the then most powerful army in the world. the natchez does not, it passes the site but you can't get off the boat. the queen gives you an...

It was relaxing and pretty but the bugs were EVERYWHERE and took away from it. I would say do it but just be aware of bugs.

My family had an excellent time on the jazz cruise. The weather was great and we really enjoyed the experience. Food was good, the people were great, and the music was wonderful. I would certainly do this again.

We took this tour to the Chalmette Battlefield. Unfortunately the audio system was not working properly so we missed most of the information provided during the trip up the river. The National Park guide was great but unfortunately the time at the site was so short (45 minutes at best) we didn't get a chance to really see anything. Overall,... More

We purchased tickets for the Chalmette Battlefield cruise through Travel Zoo at half price and planned to use them the last week of May, before the vouchers expire on May 30. With thunderstorms in the area, torrential rain and flash flood warnings, we asked that our tickets be extended for another week. Michelle told me that she could not extend... More
