    Fun experience. If I were to do this again I wouldn't sign up for the 11AM seating; I'd do a later one. The food was pretty good overall though; I loved the okra. They sell other food on the boat FYI.

    The tour narration is great. Skip the food. It's served cold and the options are very limited! This is supposed to be a jazz cruise the music is sporadic you'll be lucky to hear 3 songs 😏

    Strong cheap drinks, nice ride on missippi, a bit over priced but one of last two fully functioning steamboats in USA. Go downstairs to see Thelma and Louise the two engines!

    Cruise the Mississippi on the paddle-wheeler, which departs from Toulouse Street Wharf. You’ll be treated to live jazz on-deck, and you can opt for lunch or dinner on board if you like. -Travel Editor

    The evening dinner cruise scheduled for 7-9pm starts boarding at 6pm. If you've booked for the early sitting make sure you arrive for boarding at 6pm because they start serving once you've boarded.

    A good option to go through the almighty river while seeing the city and enjoying music jazz. There's a gift shop and a bar besides a restaurant.

    Save your money. Take a picture of the boat and call it a day. My high school cafeteria had better food. 30 minute commentary followed by 90 minutes of silence instead of the promised music.

    The food looks like its from a cafeteria but ask for more right away because it's incredible. This place goes above and beyond for customer service.

    Do the 11am cruise - NOLA is still sleeping that time and the cruise is not top busy. Sit on the left as the sights are on the left.

    The jazz/dinner cruise was 3 hours...way too long. There isn't much to look at...but on the plus side, the buffet was really yummy!

    Make sure to sit on the left hand side of the boat - the tour guide doesn't point out things on the right side.

    They try to force you into getting your picture taken under the guise of security, before boarding. So it takes FOREVER to board.
