    The Creole Queen

    The staff was pleasant and helpful, the food was good and plentiful, and the band was fun to listen to. Since the weather was perfect, it all made for a great evening.

    Lovely evening!

    No lines for boarding, plenty of photo opportunities on dock. Staff exceedingly friendly and knowledgeable. The volume of the music was just right.

    Skip the Dinner

    We purchased the dinner cruise and were disappointed in that aspect of it. What food they had was good, but for a buffet there weren't many choices. At double the price of just the river cruise by itself it wasn't worth it by a longshot. I would highly recommend the river cruise on it's own. The scenery was beautiful and it was just the right amount of time out on the water at 2 hours.

    Creole Queen

    I enjoyed the boat ride. The food was good but I didn’t get my mace back when it was over. They took it off of my keychain before I entered the boat. The ride was nice and calming

    Creole Queen Cruise

    Good experience overall: food was OK, Jazz was good, the loop on the Mississippi was interesting, giving a different viewpoint of New Orleans.
