Highlights
  • See New Orleans from a different angle on a jazz brunch cruise
  • Steam down the Mississippi on one of the last surviving paddle-wheel ships
  • Hearty tableside brunch includes a variety of Southern-style classics
  • Live jazz trio adds to the vintage atmosphere
What to Expect
Board the historic riverboat at a convenient dock near the French Quarter, and leave the bustling city streets behind as the ship paddles onto the “Mighty” Mississippi. Stroll the decks for fantastic views, and visit the museum-quality engine room for a closer look at the ship’s antique machinery. A live jazz trio keeps the mood upbeat. Head to the dining cabin for a tableside brunch loaded with savory Southern classics, such as sausage gumbo, biscuits and gravy, shrimp and grits, and scrambled eggs. Indulge in bananas Foster or bread pudding for dessert, and order a bloody mary, mimosa, or other drink from the cash bar (see Itinerary for a full menu). If you have other dining plans, a cruise-only option is also available.

The Cruise it’s if a fun activity I would do again. The brunch however is a dismal affair. The salad was wilted, the gumbo was probably my favorite part, the entree’s they brought smooshed together on one plate, you can’t blame them too much for this aspect since Covid has

Very enjoyable cruise up & down the Mighty Mississippi River. Captain gave a lot of info about the town and industry. Enjoyed the little jazz band aboard. BUT...the brunch was by far the best! So much delicious food. I highly recommend adding the brunch to your steamboat cruise.

I spent my time with my family in New Orleans for 3 days a few days before Christmas. The steamboat Natchez is something you should go when you spend time in the city. The port is very near Jackson Square, near the parking places. I bought tickets for a buffet lunch with Jazz on
