Board the historic riverboat for a morning or afternoon float down the mighty Mississippi. Stroll the deck, admire the iconic paddlewheel, enjoy live music, and snap picturesque shots of the beautiful urban shoreline. This family‐friendly excursion offers an optional tableside lunch (additional expense).

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Guarantee a spot on this popular cruise by booking a ticket in advance. Choose a morning or afternoon start time and head to Toulouse Street in the French Quarter to board the beautiful riverboat. The historic vessel particularly appeals to boat enthusiasts and history buffs, who can linger over the vintage decor.

Stroll the deck as the riverboat begins its cruise along the Mississippi River. Then, find a seat in the cabin or outside, where you can admire unobstructed views of the striking ‘Crescent City’ shoreline and enjoy live jazz music. Learn some riverside history as you pass sites like the Chalmette Battlefield, where the famous pirate and privateer Jean Lafitte teamed with Andrew Jackson to defeat British invaders in the Battle of New Orleans. 

Purchase an optional tableside lunch to sample an array of sumptuous Louisiana fare, from cornmeal-crusted fish and red beans and rice to Natchez’s signature bread pudding and fresh fruit. Coffee and tea are included with your lunch, or you may purchase adult beverages.

Your river cruise ends back at the departure point in New Orleans with plenty of time to sightsee!

Traveler Tips


  • "If it is a misty/drizzly day, get in line early to find a seat inside or in a covered area." See review
  • "If traveling with young children, you may want to take noise-cancelling earphones, as the horn that sounds upon leaving port, re-entering, or passing another boat is very loud, jolting, and prolonged." See review
  • "There’s plenty of seating, no need to hurry up and queue up to score a seat." See review
