Take in the beauty and romance of New Orleans as evening falls from the decks of an authentic steamboat, the Steamboat NATCHEZ. You'll experience southern hospitality in the 19th century Victorian style dining room where a delicious New Orleans Buffet is served. Menu items vary with the season and the creativity of the Chef, but all are prepared fresh on-board the Natchez.

Throughout the two–hour cruise you are serenaded by the music that made New Orleans famous and that spread across America courtesy of the Steamboat trade. The lively jazz tunes are provided for your enjoyment by the Grammy–Nominated Dukes of Dixieland Jazz Band.

Seating is available indoors and on all decks for the very best views of the river and the city. The indoor areas are climate–controlled and outdoor space allows for tours of all levels of the boat during your time aboard.

  1. Review by Steve Eiden

    Excellent food, service and the band was the best. All was professional and the narration was great. Second time my wife and I have taken this excursion and we've raved about it to all our friends. The process to reserve and pay was flawless. Keep up the great work with these packages.

    Jazz Cruise was very good. The food selection could have been better but it was okay. (Posted on 7/28/2016)

  3. Review by Mika Bryant

    The cruise was so much fun! Good music, drinks, and excellent food!! Great service. Highly recommend for romantic nights... I dont think kids should be allowed on it. They run around and disrupt the romantic dinner and it just seems too mature for anyone under the age of 18. (Posted on 5/17/2016)
