We did the Natchez paddle boat dinner cruise last week. We purchased our tickets the day before at a tourist stand. We got $10 off the internet price and a drink ticket. There are two dinner sittings. If you pick the early sitting you ate while the boat was still docked. We took the late sitting, so we enjoyed a... More

Beutiful old genuine paddle steamer, the cruise was pleasant, commentry interesting - great way to spend a few hours on the Mississippi. Judging on the comments below and what we saw of the food on board we were lucky to have avoided it.

It is nice to say that I traveled on the Mississippi. But that's about it. There is really not too much to see. The information the give is ok. The jazz music is nice. I'm glad that it was only 2 hours long though. I imagine that a dinner cruise, or a Sunday brunch cruise would be a much better... More

Cruise really provides a different option for date night. The cruise itself was really nice and the staff was nice as well. We had a great time and would definitely return.

Great views from the boat and some great history of the area. Brunch was just "eh"...not worth wasting calories in New Orleans on. But the jazz band was a lot of fun.

Though it was a little stormy which should be expected in a tropical climate, we had such a great time relaxing and just viewing after a day of walking long distances the day before. This is a must! we did not do the lunch and my husband checked it out and said we made the right choice. We saved it... More

We were very pleased with the cruise and the live jazz band on board. The only thing that marred this cruise was the food. I like to try anything and everything but I guess I am not an afficiando of Creole cooking. Neither my husband nor I enjoyed the grits or the gumbo soup. I think the only thing that... More

For years I've wanted to ride a steamboat. This chance was too good to pass up. The Natchez is beautiful and you'll love snapping pictures. Here's my disappointment-first, as often happens in New Orleans is poured earlier in the day. When we arrived on ship 3/4 of the seats were wet. There were no towels provided. For the price, I...

We went during the lunch cruise. Before you get on the boat you get a serenade from the steam organ on the boat. What a treat!! The food for the luncheon was very good and they had a live jazz band playing the whole time. The cruise gave you a history of the boat and also a history of the... More

A nice way to see New Orleans from the water for a couple of hours. The captains meet you at the ramp when boarding to welcome you. The narrator gives lots of information about the sites you see during the cruise.
