Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Choose a morning or afternoon cruise time for your Sunday jazz brunch and head to Toulouse Street in the French Quarter to board the beautiful riverboat. Fun for all, boat enthusiasts will particularly enjoy viewing the boat’s vintage decor, such as the museum‐quality engine room.

Take a promenade along the deck as the riverboat begins the float along the Mississippi River. Then find a seat in the cabin or on the outside deck, where you can admire unobstructed views of the striking New Orleans shoreline and soak up some classic jazz tunes performed by a local trio. 

Sample an array of sumptuous Louisiana fare, from shrimp and grits to signature bread pudding. Coffee and tea are included with your brunch, or you may purchase wine, mimosas, punch, and Bloody Marys.

Your river cruise ends back at the departure point in New Orleans with plenty of time to sightsee (and walk off your hearty brunch!)

Impress from the time we boarded the boat until we got off.

I would give the experience a 10/10. If you see some negative reviews about food, service or anything else I will say that with 300-400 people and 100 employees you are going to have some mishaps. We were impressed with everything from the boat to the food and the hospitality of the crew. If you go make sure and choose the meal option. Is it a 5 star meal- no- but it was a lot of good food and the presentation was wonderful. I am sure some people may have had an average server or something was cold- or not the way they like it- but do not let that be the reason you don’t take this trip. This is an awesome trip for all ages.

Very Disappointing Experience

This was a terrible and extremely disappointing experience. The ship adventure was my birthday and Mother's Day gift. Upon boarding time, we were told due to engine problems we would not sale but could listen to music and eat on the docked boat. However, the tickets for two were $110. We were in New Orleans... could have listen to music and eaten for less than $25. We didn't get to do the cruise. I would be scared to recommend this cruise to anyone or plan it for myself again.

Took Mothers day brunch, lots of people in dining room, so it took a long time to get food out & it had to go out by course, so if you got served early you had to wait till almost all were served b4 you could move to next course. Missed a lot of the outside scenery.

We did have a great time. I had only one issue which was with the service during the brunch. Our server did not do a good job. He did not come to the table ...we had to keep asking others for our server. I would love to do this trip again but without the brunch. I do highly recommend you try this cruise!!
