booked a cruise with an on board buffet which at $120 for two of us was reasonable value. We toured the engine room, fascinating and the captain gave an interesting running commentary as the boat travelled. The buffet was fair, fried local wish with fries, and veg and a very good bread pudding.

Unique way to learn the history of New Orleans and see the Mississippi river. Great boat , information outstanding . We had the breakfast cruise but choose not to eat I would recommend just do the cruise opt out of upgrading to haver breakfast or lunch included. There are bars on board , have a cocktail well worth it and... More

A paddlewheeler cruise is just something that must be done whilst in New Orleans! We were not disappointed. We did the evening dinner cruise and got just what we expected for what we thought was a reasonable price. The jazz band did a great job. This outing takes approximately four enjoyable hours.

We were immediately seated onside the lunch cabin and bring your ticket to the buffet as they do check as guess many tried to get a free lunch that were just on the cruise part. Buffet was ok..not great but ok. Live jazz band was... More

For a bit of history and a different perspective, I took my boys on a Steamboat experience. This is a great way to spend lunch with your kids. The food is good and appealing to every taste. The kids can run around, check out the engine room and burn off their energy all in a super safe environment while mama... More

I went on the Jazz brunch cruise. It was fun and the food was fresh and good. The boat was fun to walk around and the music was fun as well.

Food was not good at buffet. Cafeteria food at best. They could have included soda and chips. Never saw the fruit that was described as part of the menu. They said it went like hot cakes. Didn't have equal or Splenda (nor the like) only saccharine for coffee & tea. Friendly crew and the main lady on ship needs a... More

Great choice to take a ride on the Mississippi on an original steamboat! History story as you cruise down and wonderful jazz music on the way back! Food is available..my choice was to take the cruise only. Bar service available and snack bar too! Tour the engine room which is clean and has wonderful pictures and memorabilia.
