    Cleo and Gina made our group feel special!

    Came from Florida with a small group of girlfriends and checked out this cruise. First tip for everyone, please give yourself plenty of time to get there. Just because your Wazzes app says 20 mins ETA doesn't mean that's when you'll arrive. Traffic was bad and we were almost late for the boat. Once on board we were able to explore the boat and check out all the decks and engine room. Try the Natchez Punch and it'll make you even more relaxed as the boat glides down the river. Dinner was delicious. I am on an ulcer friendly diet and there was plenty for me to be able to eat! Our hostess Gina and server, Cleo repeatedly checked on us and took amazing care of us! Make sure when you go that you ask for them and sit in their section. They have incredible smiles and service. We felt like VIP's!

    Okay

    The Rain hinder the overall trip; however, the cruise is to crowded. The tour guide indicate the boat holds 1200 people but it doesn’t mean comfortably. The dinner was okay but roast beef and turkey I don’t consider NOLA food. Where was the catfish, shrimp and crawfish etitofee. As my rating indicates everything was fine nothing out of the ordinary.
