Overview

Experience the dazzle of New Orleans at night with a romantic dinner cruise aboard the famous Steamboat Natchez. Journey through time on this paddle-wheel boat ride along the mighty Mississippi. Stroll the deck, cozy up with family and friends and delight in the sparkle of the urban shoreline at dusk. This excursion includes a Creole‐inspired dinner and live jazz music.
  • Enjoy a scenic cruise along the Mississippi River from New Orleans
  • Listen to live jazz music performed by the Grammy-nominated Dukes of Dixieland
  • Take in incredible views of the city skyline
  • Savor a casual buffet dinner (if option selected)

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Shoreline views are enhanced by a Creole buffet dinner and Dixie tunes on this sunset ride.
Choose one of two evening start times for your dinner cruise and head to Toulouse Street in the French Quarter to board the beautiful Steamboat Natchez. This paddlewheel ship — one of the last of its kind in New Orleans — will transport you back to the 19th century when ports bustled with produce-laden cargo ships, steamboats and clandestine privateering. Enjoy the boat’s atmospheric decor, such as the vintage engine room and megaphone.

Take a stroll along the deck as the Natchez begins the journey along the Mississippi River. Then have a seat in the cabin or on the outside deck, where you’ll get unobstructed views of the striking shoreline at dusk, and soak up some live jazz tunes from the Grammy-nominated Dukes of Dixieland, a true New Orleans-style band.

As for dinner, the buffet might include anything from cornmeal‐crusted fish to cheesy penne pasta. Top it off with Natchez’s signature bread pudding accompanied by coffee and tea. Read on to the Itinerary section below for a sample menu. (Menu is subject to change)

Your evening cruise ends back at the departure point in the French Quarter.

Please Note: The "starting from" price displayed is based on the cruise only option.

The AC in the dining hall was not working. The employees were so hot. Our meal was not served until the boat was nearly docked again. The dining hall really needs to be improved for a good dining experience.
