Indulge in a luxurious evening with this VIP jazz dinner cruise aboard an authentic riverboat. After being welcomed aboard with a Champagne cocktail, go on a private boat tour led by the first mate. Then settle into your reserved seat in the dining room and listen to live jazz as you savor a dinner full of local favorites. If you are looking for a little more, upgrade your cruise to include a call brand bar option for the entire duration. Don’t miss this opportunity to cruise through New Orleans in style on an exclusive tour that can’t be booked anywhere else!

So much fun!! We booked the VIP experience and it was awesome. The staff was fun and very nice. We got gifts, pictures and free drinks… not to mention food was delicious! The tour wasn’t available because we were on the sister ship but met the Captain and Chef. My family and I had a blast listening to the jazz band and exploring the steamboat!

In a word...Awesome. Please make sure to do the VIP experience at least once. Delicious food and fun entertainment are a given, but having the Captain escort us on a tour and being treated like royalty made the night so special. Our host, I believe her name was Brenda, but my memory isn't what it used to be, made the night perfect. She was a ball of energy that attended to our every need and just the nicest person you'd ever want to meet. The band was superb as well and we had reserved up front seats. Let me say this. We followed up this experience with a seven night cruise on NCL. If any night had met the same level of enjoyment as our experience on this wonderful riverboat, it would have ranked up there with one of our best cruises, and we've done 23 cruises. I looked around and everybody was enjoying it as much as us. So...Do the VIP experience at least once, but you'll have a fantastic time even if you don't.

We did the VIP package for my boyfriends 40th bday. It was worth every penny. The service was top notch. I felt like a celebrity all night long. The captain gave us a private tour during the middle of the boat ride and it was awesome! Such a kind man. Our hostess, Brenda was a true gem. We need more people like her in this world. We had such an amazing time! The food, drinks, and the band were also great! Would highly recommend this dinner cruise.

What a great dinner date night! We booked the VIP package and it was well worth the money. Brenda was our hostess and my gosh, was she a dream! From beginning to end we were treated like vip. There was always a drink in our hands, our food was served to us at the perfect little table by the window. The jazz band was great and we enjoyed dancing to their music! The tour of the steamboat itself was also super fascinating and the man that gave us the tour was a real pleasure to talk to.I don’t know that I’ve met a nicer bunch of people, but we will totally do this again and recommend to our family and friends!

Where to start?! Gina and the GrayLine team were fabulous and made this a memorable evening. With the VIP package, I had a reserved table front and center on the top deck that immersed me into the great tunes put out by our entertainers for the evening. Gina kept the drinks and food coming, even with me throwing a curveball of no seafood. She quickly adapted and introduced me to a new appetizer that blew me away. Once everyone had boarded and the band took a quick break to allow Capt and his crew to get us safely moving and away, I was whisked down to deck 2 for my reserved table in the dining room where Gina had adapted my meal to exactly what I needed. After the meal, I was given a great tour of the boat by the captain. As the Natchez is in dry dock being refitted for new boilers, we were on the Riverboat City of New Orleans, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have just as spectacular of history and a story of her own. After our tour, captain brought me back up to the top deck to soak in more iconic jazz at my reserved table from the trio of entertainers. Gina made sure I was comfortable again and brought me my dessert to enjoy. I would highly recommend this tour to any friends or family that come through the area; I might just have to tag along with them and do it again myself!

Gina was amazing! Very sweet and accommodating. We did the VIP package and it’s definitely worth it. We had open bar and didn’t have to get up once to get a drink. As soon as we finished, Gina was back to fill our drinks. They give a nice amount of food and the music was nice.
