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.

A sample dinner menu can be found in the Itinerary section below.
