Savor the beauty and romance of New Orleans from the decks of the Steamboat Natchez! Cruise along the Mississippi River while enjoying live jazz music, a buffet dinner and gorgeous sights. This authentic paddle-wheel steamboat in New Orleans is one of only six still operating on the Mississippi River.

Not just a boat, the Steamboat Natchez is a time machine that fills its passengers with the romance and marvel of yesteryear! Cruise along the Mississippi River and let the Steamboat Natchez whisk you away with its atmosphere and ambiance, with everything from a museum- quality Engine Room to the ship's orders being called over an old-time megaphone. This evening jazz cruise is a great way to experience New Orleans' beauty and culture.

As you steam ahead, soak in breathtaking views of the city skyline while enjoying a New Orleans cultural experience – a live jazz performance performed by the New Orleans band Dukes of Dixieland, a Grammy nominee.

Enjoy dining inside or outside on a delectable Louisiana-style buffet dinner including prime rib, chicken, pasta and salad. Two separate dining times give you the flexibility to enjoy the evening at your own pace.

This was my favorite thing to do. The dinner was very good and the trip on the steamboat was amazing. We got to see a lot of things that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Also, if you go, be sure to go on the lower deck and check out the steam engine. It is pretty amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was very relaxing.

Amazing atmosphere! I can't think of a better way to spend a night in New Orleans than enjoying dinner while sailing along the Mississippi, watching the sunset and being entertained by a jazz band.

We had a really good time. We got to tour the steamship, see the river at night and dinner was very good (much better than I expected). The river boat staff was very professional and kind. Price was more than reasonable. Round highly recommend.

Great tour, we got there early and sat and watched the band. We booked second sitting for dinner, the food was excellent and plenty of it. I mentioned when booking it was our Anniversary and they had reserved a table for us. Take a coat as it does get very windy.
