Great Cruise-Forget The Meal

The 7PM ""dinner cruise"" is well worth it...if you avoid the meal. The Mississippi at New Orleans is approximately half a mile wide and several hundred feet deep in order to accomodate ocean vessels docking at the Port Of New Orleans. The Natchez Steamboat goes down river approximately five miles, then returns upstream. The trip is two hours elapsed time. The Boat's captain and first officer provide a running commentary of what passengers are seeing along the way. The true highlite of the trip is listening to the Dukes Of Dixieland play jazz standards from cast off to docking. The ride is pleasurable, smooth and ends too soon. Eat first on shore, and visit the bar in the main salon for liquid libation.

the only steam-engine boat

Went on the dinner/jazz cruise. the music was good. The buffet you can pass up, they had pecan chicken and cajun catfish that had pretty good taste but was cold, even when a new tray came out--they should have more cold salads if they can't keep things hot. And they should have 2 lines going because you're waiting around in line too long-bad organization. Basically, you cruise along the Mississippi River and enjoy the music; not much to see. I would suggest doing just the cruise and have dinner elsewhere - New Orleans has so many good places to eat.
