What to Expect
Journey back in time aboard the Sternwheeler Steamboat Natchez – the only surviving authentic steamboat in New Orleans. Sit back, relax and enjoy the New Orleans atmosphere as the smooth jazz of the world-acclaimed Dukes of Dixieland fills your ears.
This 2-hour cruise from the heart of the French Quarter transports you back to a time when cotton was king and life was as slow and graceful as the Mississippi herself.
Seating is available indoors and on deck for the very best views of the river and the City of New Orleans. The indoor areas are climate-controlled and the outdoor space allows for tours of all levels of the boat. There is nothing more charming than an evening on the Steamboat Natchez.
Choose from a dinner, lunch, Sunday brunch cruise or cruise only to feel the charm and create wonderful memories of New Orleans
