I'm in my 50s and my mom is in her 70s, and we booked the historic battlefield cruise in advance, and we weren't disappointed. You can sit outside on the top deck or in the ac. We chose the latter. Be aware that your ticket only gets you on board though, and food costs extra. You can pay for the... More

We took the afternoon Battlefield Cruise, where you have a stop at the area of the 1814 Battle of New Orleans. A park ranger there gave us an excellent, informative and entertaining talk on... More

Was a nice leisurely boat ride with a stop to visit the Chalmette battlefield. The buffet was decent and included fountain drinks.

We did the evening dinner cruise and thought we paid too much for what was on offer. We expected a cold and hot buffet selection. There was a large bowl of salad leaves, no cold meats, no seafood!! The hot selection was okay but only just. The 3 piece band were fine but it would have been nice to have... More

We took our elderly parents on a lunch cruise and they throughly enjoyed it. The seating was perfect and the boat had enough covering to accommodate all the guests and keep away the hot sun rays! The captain gave a wonderful dialogue of all the passing historic monuments and city buildings. Great experience!!

The boat ride was awesome. The food was not so awesome. Food was cold and not many choices. The best part of the food was the dessert.

This was a pleasant 1 hr cruise down the Miss. River on a paddle wheel boat with a stopover at the site of the Battle of New Orleans. The stopover was less than 1 hr. which didn't allow time in the visitor center or enough time to view the cemetety. The Park Ranger did give a detailed overview of the... More
