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.

Please Note: The Natchez will be out of the water in Dry-Dock for routine maintenance from Tuesday, January 3 through Sunday, January 29. Bookings will resume Monday, January 30th!

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.
