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.
