This was a truly fun experience. The sunset river cruise was beautiful. Cajun dinner was outstanding and our server was very lively, making for a delightful time. The jazz band was very talented. I would do this again. The only negative was the outrageous cost of parking. We paid $54 for 5 hours.…

We took the Evening Cruise during nice weather in late August, really nice. The food was not too great but the Bar and experience on the top deck was super. The live N.O. Jazz band was super and bar delivered pretty good drinks quickly. All in all it's a great experience; if the weather is good give it a shot, I would not repeat the dinner option.…

I had a wonderful server named Melanie. She was delightful! Very helpful and personable. I highly recommend this fun cruise! The food was good and the Captain's running commentary about the river and New Orleans history was so interesting! Fun facts to know!

My wife, my daughter, a friend, and I had reservations for the Riverboat New Orleans. The Riverboat Natchez was not available. Both riverboats are owned and operated by Gray Line. I made our reservations in July and we were scheduled to be on the boat in October. A week before our tour, Gray Line sent me an email saying that our tour had been canceled. They said that the riverboat needed unexpected maintenance. I was disappointed, but I understood. Things happen. Gray Line invited us to take another tour with them at half price. So, I scheduled us for an airboat swamp tour. That tour required more time, so, begrudgingly, I canceled another event that we had planned. Gray Line sent me a confirmation. Later that day, Gray Line contacted me again by email to say that our airboat swamp tour was canceled. I called, and the people I spoke to reiterated what Gray Line sent in its email. If Gray Line had only canceled our river boat cruise, that would have been understandable. In the end, what Gray Line did was to wreck this day of our vacation. Be careful.…

Review of: New Orleans Steamboat Natchez Harbor Cruise
The Sunday Jazz Brunch was a great choice. We enjoyed the band, the buffet, and the cruise narration. Our waiter, Conner, was great. Really a nice way to see the sights from the Mississippi River as well as have a unique New Orleans experience. Loved it!
