A great evening something different and the food was far better than we thought. Cold on deck in November but when dining nice and cosy.

Great night, food was wonderful and so was the dixieland band on board. Food was buffet style and all you can eat both main and dessert. Marion was our waitress and she was wonderful, so friendly and helpful. Tour the aengine room to se how the boat works, very Cool.

This was great fun, though our evening was cloudy with light rain, so no sunset. The jazz combo was very enjoyable and the dinner was wonderful! The photos we had seen of the dinner were not that impressive, but the buffet was quite good and had a variety of items. We would recommend asking for the 6pm seating. We boarded early, had dinner, and were out on the deck for most of the excursion down the river and back. This is a nice evening activity after a day of sightseeing.

Nice evening on the steamboat - S.S.Natchez. The band was good and supper was delicious. The only thing I would change is have the 6:00 p.m. sitting for supper, so when it ended, you could go out on deck and enjoy the evening. I would have liked just one more hour on this steamboat.

I took a 2 hour cruise on the Natchez in the evening. Beautiful skyline and amazing Dixieland band. A must when visiting New Orleans.

What a great experience to take an authentic steam powered paddle boat down the Mississippi River; complete with a wonderful Dixieland Jazz Band, "The Dukes of Dixieland" and a fantastic meal to top it off!! The nighttime skyline of New Orleans was very impressive and the other activities on the river were interesting to see, as well. The tour was well narrated and the onboarding and off boarding was well managed without crowding and "herding."

My husband and I chose the 7:00 pm cruise without dinner. It was great - seeing New Orleans while cruising on the Mississippi at night was wonderful.
I wanted to note that while running to the dock (our previous tour got us back late), I tripped and fell on the pavement. The only persons that helped me were two officers from the Natchez - they helped me on to the boat, found a comfortable place for my husband and I to sit, brought me towels and hydrogen peroxide for my cuts and then made sure we could get off the boat first. They were wonderful and I am very grateful for their extra attention.
