Creole Queen Evening Jazz Cruise

by New Orleans Paddlewheels Duration 3h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $79

As the sun slips behind the horizon, painting the sky in shades of pink and gold, treat yourself to a true Creole evening out on the Mississippi River. Enjoy a paddlewheeler cruise accompanied by a tasty buffet-style New Orleans dinner and listen to live Dixieland jazz while you cruise.

The Creole Queen invites you to step back in time as you board her open-air decks to the drifting sounds of live jazz. Push away from the dock and find your table as the finishing touches are put on your dinner, a sumptuous spread of classic Creole dishes. Fill your plate with classics like spicy jambalaya and sausage gumbo, paired perfectly with crumbly hunks of cornbread.

Take to the dance floor after dinner to move to the sounds of Dixieland jazz, consider grabbing a drink from the onboard bar, or step outside to enjoy the fresh air as you steam down the Mississippi at twilight.

Sample menu includes:

  • Caesar salad
  • Chicken and sausage gumbo
  • Louisiana Creole jambalaya
  • Cajun baked chicken
  • Cajun braised beef brisket
  • Cajun seafood pasta
  • Red beans and rice

Very nice experience. Live Jazz was good. We made a mistake on our reservation. Expedia was able to take care of our last minute request.

We had a wonderful evening on board the Creole Queen. The dinner service was wonderful, the food was very tasty, and the bread pudding was the perfect ending of a great meal. I did also appreciate that our waiter stayed with us for the evening, and came up to check on our drink orders while we enjoyed the jazz music on deck. Overall I would go back and do this cruise again.
