I had low expectations. But imagine my surprise when the dinner was delicious, especially the bread pudding and the bread. All food is made in the galley per the narrative. The dinner schedule was adhered to nicely also. There was plenty of good seating outdoors to view the sights and the narration was nicely done. The sun set was lovely... More

We went in July and took the option of having dinner. Very hot in New Orleans and uncomfortable outside. Boat was crowded. Long wait in line to get drinks. Nothing spectacular to see on the trip. Food was ok, but buffet style and you have to wait to be escorted to the buffet line. Was a long wait in our... More

We did a Harbour Jazz Cruise including the lunch buffet. The cruise was not what we expected, but interesting enough. The guide gave a lot of information about the harbour and activities going on on the river, and didn't talk too much. The lunch buffet was disappointing, and the food was just OK. There were more than enough other options... More

My daughter and I decided to take a cruise. We went on the seven of clock one. We were the first to eat dinner. When we sat down there was already bread and salad on our table. The meal was buffet. Had plenty to eat. Food was good. Enjoyed the cruise as there was a Jazz band playing. Our captain... More

This was a great trip. We opted for the Sunday Brunch Jazz Cruise with Lunch and couldn't have been happier. Our service was great and the food was actually pretty good. To add the Brunch with the cruise was very reasonably priced. The narration on the trip was great and gliding down the Mississippi while enjoying a nice meal and... More
