    Done the Jazz cruise a few times now and absolutely love it. It was a fun way to see the city and also get to hear great music. Its not very scenic after leaving New Orleans but the leisure of enjoying a river breeze with good music is good enough for me. The food was good. I really liked the gumbo on board. It is buffet style once your section is cleared to get it. My suggestion though is that if you want to enjoy the jazz after dinner that you sign up for the early seating, otherwise the ship docks at the end of the meal. If you are looking for...Read More

    Dry, old meat. The food had been sitting under a heat lamp for a couple of hours - and they ran out of prime rib. It was dry anyway. Even the creamed spinach was dry. How do you make that happen??? They also didn't reset the tables between the first and second seatings, so there were no more tables by the windows. It was worth about $15.00 / person. It cost $77.00 / person.

    Expensive, cold food, barely any food, boring.
    I booked the dinner and jazz cruise for my anniversary. It was horrible!!! The carpet to the diner was old, dirty and smelly. When the food came out there was barely anything to eat. Cold pasta, some dinner rolls, and some type of roast that reminded me of the National Lampoons Christmas movie with Chevy Chase. you had to throw that sucker in water in order to chew it. No Jazz music was played thru the dinner. When they did play it was 1 guy with a saxophone and only played for about 8 minutes!!! Don't...Read More

    Came here on my birthday and it wasn't that bad of and experience. The problems were that it was very dull and boing and had no protection to Mosquitos. Recommendation: bring Mosquitos repellant!

    The dinner cruise was a total disappointment. The 'buffet' consisted of 2 meats, fried fish, potatoes and creamed spinach. ONLY the roast beef and marginally the potatoes were edible. The fried fish was tasteless, the pork was so overcooked we could barely chew it, and the creamed spinach was horrible. And everything was cold. And one dessert was offered, bread pudding. The ship was somewhat interesting. If you really want to go on this, just do the cruise. Do NOT waste your money on the 'dinner'.

If you are looking for a romantic activity to do when in the city this is one of the last few steamers in existence as I understand. Great relaxing fun!
