Riverboat Cruises

The Mississippi River is inextricably linked to the history of New Orleans, and even today the Port of New Orleans remains the centerpiece of the busiest port complex in the world. Although the port is now known more for cargo than for passenger cruising, two riverboat companies offer elegant jazz cruises that recall the splendor of the 19th century.
In general, evening cruises are geared more toward adults, with a focus on dining and dancing, but children are welcome on all cruises.

When night falls, the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen rises to the occasion.

Step on board and cruise with us into the night where the sleepless activity of America's busiest port buzzes. The sounds of a lively jazz band fill the air as you enjoy a lavish Creole buffet in elegantly appointed dining rooms.

The Creole Queen features outer decks with authentically patterned wrought iron trims inviting guests to stroll back in time as they settle into the mood of a bygone era. The interiors are richly appointed with plush Victorian style draperies, soft period lighting, wooden parquet dance floors, and Louisiana Cypress bars accented with brass railing for a warm and welcoming setting. After dinner, enjoy your favorite cocktails and sweet river breezes on the promenade deck as the city skyline slips by under a canopy of stars.
