I thought we were going to be stuffed on the boat like sardines. Yes, there are a great number of tourists, but I never felt overcrowded. What impressed me most was the facts given during the cruise and the sights that you see. Pleasant cruise...More

It's a nice relaxing two hour evening trip on the Mississippi if you have the time and looking for something local to do. Catch the steamboat in Jackson Square and get your tickets early or on line. The jazz performance begins at the start and...More

Here's your bad rating right away for discriminating against us as foreigners not accepting our IDs as proof of age. 60 bucks for a New Orleans tour without any beer or cocktails. That s**ks.

We decided on the afternoon trip on the Steamboat Natchez without lunch. I'm glad we decided to lunch off-boat! The buffet-style lunch really didn't look very appetizing. The Steamboat Natchez itself is a very enjoyable ride. Tip: when you board, go to the second deck...More

The food was not good at all. The view on the river was limited to the industrial parts of the city. It was pretty expensive, and not a good value at all.

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

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.
