Very crowded

Hard to find a seat. Boring. Nothing very interesting to see. Food was very poor. The worst I ate in NOLA. Music was good but lasted a very short while.

This trip was well worth it

The authentic experience is not to be missed, buffet car was well organised with the added bonus of the resident jazz band.
