Enjoyed sailing on the great Mississippi with delicious food and jazz playing in the background. Ten of us took this excursion and had a great time.
Yes, you can find bad food in New Orleans if you look hard enough. The Creole Queen has it. Gumbo without shrimp. Jambalaya just a little too sticky. And the band in the dining room, ANCIENT! I must have heard six of the worst drum solo's of all time! (The band on top deck was better.)
As for the boat ride, that's really all it is. There is no tour guide pointing out interesting sites along the way.
Well organised dinner cruise with abundance of choice for the buffet style meal.
Pleasant cruise along the Mississippi with Jazz band playing.
Very poor quality of food - it was a total wastage of money - music was o.k. Also, originally booked the tour through viator on a Sunday evening - after confirmation and payment, the trip had to be changed - went for a Monday cruise - created problem for scheduling other tours.
Had a great time, the food was excellent, the experience was fantastic. The staff were very attentive and patient.
Lots of fun. Great food, service, and music. Music was loud enough to hear but not so loud that you couldn't have a conversation. Rainy views were awesome. Loved it.
I was very happy and my family too of course, it was nice food ,nice weather ,nice drinks, love it it was a real experience with n the boat
This was a Great Cruise!!! The Band was absolutely fabulous, the food was delicious, and the views were wonderful. Highly recommend this Dinner Cruise.
