A must do! Relaxing cruise with live jazz music on deck! Actually caught the gentleman playing the calliope on the top deck! So cool! Loved the narrator of the cruise. Very informative! Never knew why they called New Orleans, The Crescent City. I do now!...More

We did the 6:00 dinner seating, which is he better seating, if possible. This way you are almost done your dinner before the shop even leaves the dock, and you can then head outside to enjoy the sights from the cruise and enjoy the music....More

Actually, I thought this "cruise" was a bit overrated, but it was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Didn't see a whole heck of a lot except the muddy Mississippi, but the captain did give you some history and information on the connection and...More

We did a jazz only 2-hr tour departing at 2.30pm The best part was music from some steam-driven instrument played on top of the boat 1/2hr before the departure. The queue to board was long and if you arrive 30min before the departure, there are...More

We didn't have high expectations for this Dinner Jazz cruise to begin with, but wanted to experience a cruise on the Mississippi anyways. Still recommend going, but DO NOT recommend the dinner. The buffet was a huge disappointment as the food was just mediocre and...More

The staff was very attentive. My travel companion has mobility issues and the staff went way out of their way to make sure her needs were accommodated. Lunch was just enough choices and the food was prepared nicely. The narrative was quite informative.

We walked up the ticket stand in front of the boat on a Wednesday at 11am and were lucky enough to board for the 11:30 cruise (got lunch tickets as well). The meal was better than expected and a lot. We did not rush to...More

This was booked through our travel agent. It was the day before Mardi Gras so everywhere was quite busy. The Steamboat Natchez Harbour Cruise With Buffet Brunch was leaving at 11.30am and we were advised to get early for check in at the Lighthouse Ticket...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

We suggest 15 minutes before boarding to pickup your boarding ticket at the Lighthouse ticket office, everyone needs one whether you bought on line etc. If you are booked on the 7:45pm dinner seating then you don't have to... More
Is there a dress code for the DINNER portion of the cruise, are jeans allowed and common at dinner? All I could find is the term "dressy casual" on the website. Any first hand experience would be helpful like no one wore jeans, everyone was in clean jeans, or khakis and collared shirt was common and more appropriate for dinner. We will be walking around all day and just need to know if I have to go back to the hotel to clean up a little.

Nice jeans and polo shirt for men or similar for women is certainly acceptable. Many people are touring during the day and come directly to the boat.
