Easily the best night of our vacation. The VIP experience is very much worth it. I am so glad we did it! My favorite movie as a kid was the Parent Trap and this dinner cruise reminded me of the movie!

Brenda made this a seamlessly enjoyable evening. The food and entertainment were excellent. We especially enjoyed the tour led by the captain. Wow.

I went with my husband and we loved it. The food was ok but our host was amazing. Friendly and sweet. We loved her. We spent most of our time at dinner. We wished we got to see more of the jazz group. Over all had a great time.

Our lady Brenda met us on the dock and took us up to get our boarding pictures and then took us in for our champagne toast. She then took us to our reserved seat on the deck directly in front of the band where she brought us a yummy shrimp cocktail plate and set us up with more drinks before other passengers started to trickle up. Brenda was absolutely amazing and treated us like celebrities but it felt like talking to an old friend. When it was time for dinner she took us to a table that was beautifully decorated and personalized for us. She brought us everything they had to offer and it was all quite good and she made sure we were never without a fresh drink and took pictures of us so we would have those wonderful memories. After dinner the captain met with us and took us on a tour of the boat. He was very passionate and knowledgeable and it was an amazing extra. After the tour he took us back to our reserved table in front of the band which was great because there would have been no where to sit or even stand as everyone was gathered there to enjoy the music. Brenda met us there with more drinks and took more pictures of us and gave us an amazing little gift bag full of souvenirs of our ride. Brenda was such a sweetheart and made us feel so special the entire time. I definitely recommend the VIP upgrade with open bar it was the most wonderful way to enjoy a trip down the Mississippi. And the band was really good too.

Really great. You are taken care of the moment you show up and are ushered to the front of the line and personally escorted inside the boat before anyone else has boarded. The evening continues with champagne, appetizers and live jazz, followed by personal table service for dinner, and a tour of the boat itself, which for us, was conducted by the captain, who was an attraction all on his own - 47 years of experience, and a great Southern character. This is actually really good value for the level of one on one treatment you get, and our host, Brenda, was fantastic! A great time.

Well worth the extra for VIP. Our hostess was great. We never had to get up for food or drinks the entire cruise. The music was good and the food and drinks were a pleasant surprise. I had low expectation for the food and drinks, but everything was very good. I may rebook this same trip every time I am in New Orleans from now on.

So yesterday we took the jazz dinner cruise on the Natchez sister boat. I highly recommend to anyone doing this to book with Cool Destinations and select the vip option. It is a little expensive BUT for the extra we never waited on line to board, we had reserved tables both at the top right in front of the band, reserved table at dinner, never had to go up to the bar for a drink or to get food because our hostess Gina who was fantastic served us our drinks and food, captain gave us a quick tour and shared info about the boat, we got our boarding pics and some little souvenirs at the end. It was the best money I’ve spent in a while and 1000% worth it.
