Ride on one of the last authentic paddle-wheel ships in New Orleans with a Sunday brunch cruise aboard Steamboat Natchez. Get a new perspective on the city skyline as you glide down the Mississippi, and check out vintage features, such as the working steam engine. Dig into a delicious buffet brunch featuring Louisiana favorites, such as cheese grits and beignets, while a jazz trio provides a lively soundtrack.
What to Expect
Board the historic Steamboat Natchez at a convenient dock near the French Quarter, and leave the bustling city streets behind as the ship paddles onto the “Mighty” Mississippi. Stroll the decks for fantastic views, and visit the museum-quality engine room for a closer look at the ship’s antique machinery. A live jazz trio keeps the mood upbeat.

Head to the dining cabin for a buffet brunch loaded with savory Southern classics, such as sausage gumbo, biscuits and gravy, shrimp and grits, and scrambled eggs. Indulge in bananas Foster, sugar-dusted beignets, or bread pudding for dessert, and order a bloody mary, mimosa, or other drink from the cash bar (see Itinerary for a full menu). If you have other dining plans, a cruise-only option is also available.
