Savour the beauty and romance of New Orleans as you enjoy a leisurely evening cruise along the mighty Mississippi while being serenaded with world class Jazz music.
Take to the waters of the mighty Mississippi River for an evening cruise aboard the historic Steamboat Natchez which is one of only 6 authentic steamboats still operating. This two hour cruise includes live Jazz from the world renowned ‘Dukes of Dixieland’ and will take you back to a time when cotton was king and life was as slow and graceful as the current on the Mississippi. If the jazzy tunes aren’t enough to keep you entertained you will also be able to view the museum quality engine room of this historic vessel, and you will have full access to the decks and bars of the boat.
