Charles gave a fascinating and entertaining narration of the tour, from the history of the region, to the Battle of New Orleans, to the recounting of Hurricane Katrina. So glad I went.

Ryan, our bartender, made the trip extra special because he was friendly and made great drinks! As a travel agent, I highly recommend this cruise...even in a thunderstorm, it was great! The announcer made the history fun and we had a great time!
