Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Choose one of two evening start times for your dinner cruise and head to Toulouse Street in the French Quarter to board the beautiful riverboat. This paddlewheel ship — one of the last of its kind in New Orleans — will transport you back to the 19th century when ports bustled with produce-laden cargo ships, steamboats, and clandestine privateering.

Take a stroll along the deck as you begin the journey along the Mississippi River. Then have a seat in the cabin or on the outside deck, where you’ll get unobstructed views of the striking shoreline at dusk, and soak up some live jazz tunes from the Grammy-nominated Dukes of Dixieland, a true New Orleans-style band.

As for dinner, your tableside meal might include anything from chicken and sausage gumbo to cheesy penne pasta. Top it off with signature bread pudding accompanied by coffee and tea. Read on to the Itinerary section below for a sample menu. (Menu is subject to change)

Your evening cruise ends back at the departure point in the French Quarter.

Please Note: The "starting from" price displayed is based on the cruise only option.

Awesome Overall Experience

The overall experience was really nice . Atmosphere , food , and people were awesome . One thing is the 7:45 dinner completely keeps you from enjoying the rest of the cruise as previously stated In reviews. The main courses took a while to be served as well. Waitress was friendly, it was a really good time with family. I would recommend to anyone. (Maybe extend the trip an hour since the second dinner is late )

A waste of time

I came all the way from Florida to experience the New Orleans lifestyle. My husband and I were so excited to travel on the steamboat. To finally get there and to hear the boat is broke down. We now have to wait 7 to 10 business days to get a refund. It was just an inconvenience because we could have planned differently.

The Steamboat Natchez Jazz Cruise was an enjoyable experience. We did not eat dinner, although we heard from other passengers that it was delicious. We will do it again on future trips to NOLA. Thank you to the crew!
