Steamboat Natchez Evening Jazz Cruise

by Gray Line New Orleans Duration 2h Features animals Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $48

Step aboard one of last authentic steam-powered sternwheelers for a memorable cruise around New Orleans on the Mississippi River. Hear stories of the Big Easy's rich history as you tap your feet to acclaimed live jazz music from the Dukes of Dixieland.

You board the Natchez near the illustrious French Quarter, and then watch as the crew throws off the mooring lines and listen to the puff of steam engines as the massive paddle wheel pushes you off along the Mississippi's winding banks. As you cruise, listen for the catchy jazz riffs of the Dukes of Dixieland as you relax in the comfortable interior by the bar or out on the open-air deck.

Along the ride, overhead commentary retells the details of the Battle of New Orleans, and you can imagine how Mark Twain got his inspiration for his hijinks-filled stories of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. For the full experience, you can also opt to enjoy dinner onboard, with a buffet-style meal of Cajun favorites and New Orleans classics that's sure to please even the pickiest eaters.

Steamboat NATCHEZ will be out of service January 21 - February 15, 2019 for her yearly Coast Guard inspections and general maintenance. All cruises during this time will take place on her sister vessel - the Riverboat CITY of NEW ORLEANS.

We did the evening dinner cruise. The food was delicious and plentiful. Wish we would have taken the cruise during the day though - there isn't much to see after you leave the port. It was dark and rainy the evening we went.

Dinner was great, the steam boat was fascinating. Only real complaint was that the bar is small so is packed when you first board and everyone is after a drink.

The cruise itself was good, the band excellent however it was too short over before you knew it. Also, my daughters had their ID with them and the server would not give them a drink so we had to go to the other bar??
