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.

Experience the Mississippi River

We did this our first night in New Orleans, and it was a great kickoff! A beautiful evening, and a great way to see the river, and get a feel for the area. The food was good, but it's more about the experience. Highly recommend...More

The historical cruise was delightful overall. Our guide was excellent and very nice. The ship's crew was also very nice. I did not get the lunch so I do not know how the food was. Overall it was fun, but I did not like that...More

Great riverboat ride

We took the lunch tour at 11:30am. The weather was great and we sit outside talking with people the entire cruise. The boat is very well kept and you can go into the engine room which I found very interesting. There is a live jazz...More
