You’ll get the same authentic riverboat experience of a leisurely, two-hour cruise on the mighty Mississippi, enjoying traditional live jazz, craft cocktails, and all the beautiful New Orleans sites, while also exploring the newly renovated riverboat. Make sure you check out all four decks - the top deck view is a sight to see! Upgrade your ticket for a delicious tableside Creole dinner.

My husband and I were totally in love with the evening. The food was delicious, the band extremely talented, and the staff were charming. The boat was gorgeous and the sunset was breathtaking.

It was my 3rd time in NOLA, my husbands first. A first for us both on this cruise and it was so relaxing, food was great, beautiful way to end the night. We began the day attending mass at St. Louis Cathedral, spent the day at Jackson Square/ French Quarter and ended with the cruise. Having these 3 things to do in the same location was so convenient!

The boat was beautiful, the food amazing. However, the wait service for dinner was not great! Waiter seemed confused about what tables he had and we had to wait 20 minutes to even get water. Other than that it was a wonderful time.

The jazz music and the beautiful evening cityscape! The sunset was magnificent. It was easy to get on and off the boat and in a perfect location to walk back to the Bourbon Street hotel.

Jazz music with the slow scenic boat ride was real nice! Commentary on what we were seeing was also nice. Then finishing up with it getting dark and seeing the lights of the city was perfect!

We enjoyed the dinner and the band very much. Bartenders were top notch. Seating for dinner was handled very organized.

It was very nice. My first time on the Natches and it was most enjoyable just wish it weren't so hot lol. Will def be going again when the weather is cooler. Our waiter was most attentive and a real sweetheart. Only thing I would say is that, and i know with covid protocols in place a large variety of food is not easy, but for those of us that have shellfish allergies maybe have a pasta dish with seafood and one without, because the pasta looked soooo good, lol, but I couldn't eat it as I'm allergic to shellfish. All of the staff were super nice. I did not interact with a single employee who didnt have a smile and pleasant personality. Which in these days is very nice to be treated with such courtesy.
