“really fun cruise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

I took the day cruise that took about 2 hours. It was an awesome time! I passed several sea vessels along the Mississippi River. The boat was clean and very easy on the eyes. The seats and tables were pretty and well-spaced. We had one stop, at the Jean Lafitte National Park and Reserve where a historical house and monument were, as well as a historical battlefield. I would highly recommend this cruise!

“Good Tour Choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

We did the dinner/jazz cruise. The food was good but very spicy. They tell you to be there at 6:45 but boat doesn't leave until 8PM. You can eat anytime between 7PM and on. However, if you eat later, you might miss some of the beautiful view from the top deck. Our only disappointment was that it lasted until 10PM. That would not have been a problem except we had been travelling almost 20 hours. That was not the tours problem; it was ours. We were told the tour was done at 9PM. It still was a very nice cruise.

Went on this cruise as part of an organized nurses conference tour - it was great food, music and very relaxing - definitely worth doing!

“relaxing cruise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

We had great food and fellowship.Bread pudding was the best! Option for relaxing music or more active upbeat style in the lower level. Rain and cold kept most of us inside and darkness limitied views but night lights of the city are also impressive. Staff friendly. Got picture taken prior to boarding.

“Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

We took the evening dinner cruise on 3/2. We boarded the boat at 7 pm. A picture was taken as each group boarded. $10 for a good picture. Then we were taken to our dinner table. Ordered drinks and then stared on the buffet. Food was very good for a buffet and plentiful. Jazz band played while we dined. Then at 8:00 we left the dock for a 2 hour ride. Ride would have been a little better if it was lighter out to see more. But can't change when the sun sets. Overall, I have no complaints and was a fun evening. Look for $10 off per person coupons in the New Orleans visitor guide.
