Travel like the residents of New Orleans did decades ago when you step aboard the historic Natchez steamboat on this Mississippi River cruise. After you depart from Natchez Harbor, listen to entertaining commentary on the sights that pass by as you stroll the expansive deck, enjoy live jazz music in the main dining area, and check out the churning paddle wheel in action. Upgrade to include a lunch buffet.
What to Expect

Choose a morning or afternoon departure time at booking, and then make your way to New Orleans’ French Quarter on the day of your trip to exchange your voucher for tickets at the kiosk at Toulouse Street. 

Once on board, explore the historic boat's vintage accents, such as the period decorations and the museum-quality engine room. Stroll the decks to take in the Mississippi River scenery and views of the city of New Orleans passing by. For the journey out, find a seat indoors to listen to live jazz in the main dining area, or opt to sit outside for narration on passing historic sites, such as Chalmette Battlefield. The return journey features music throughout the boat.

If you opt to upgrade to the lunch option, your journey includes a buffet lunch, made up of traditional New Orleans fare.

End up back at your original starting point, with plenty of time left in the day to continue exploring the French Quarter or beyond.

Overall, it was okay. We bought the ticket with the lunch buffet included. Even though they didn’t have a lot of choices, just baked chicken and fried fish with jambalaya, and salad with bread pudding for dessert, it was good. We certainly enjoyed the jazz...More

Super cool!

Really enjoyed our trip on the Steamboat Natchez! It was rainy, but there was plenty of coverage and it was a great couple of hours on the river!

After walking around the French Quarter, it was a nice break to sit in the shade on the boat and feel the breeze. The parts we saw were run down and damaged from prior hurricanes, but the information about them was interesting. There were not...More

Great way to spend an afternoon

My husband and I had a great time on the river cruise. We did the lunch time cruise without food since we ate prior to the trip. They had great information to share about the sites that we passed along the way. We were able...More

They'e all right, between 2 to 3 hrs. If your not eating, grab one of the best Bloody Mary's you'll find and sit back, relax and enjoy the history and beautiful views!
