Paddling along the Mississippi River is a great way to spend time in the city. Enjoying a buffet lunch while you glide along the river and take in the sights is the stuff of vacation dreams. The refreshing trip is bound to give you a considerable appreciation for the beauty of the area. Book your Paddlewheeler Creole Queen tickets and discover for yourself these scenic surroundings.
My wife and I did the Jazz Dinner. The food was excellent. The cruise left dock at 8 pm and returned at 10 pm. The buffet style dinner started at 7:30 pm. When your finished eating, buy a drink then walk outside the dining area and enjoy the cruise. The Jazz band took requests and moved outside with the guest. Our server Earl was very attentative.
Be sure to stop by the ticket booth to pick up your pass. The dinning area is air conditioned, was welcomed as it is hot this time of year.
They cancelled the tour two days in a row even though we had reservations. The first time they had a chartered group that booked the tour the last minute which left those who had reservations standing by waiting. We made reservations for the next day and again it was canceled. This time they said that the port of New Orleans would not allow them to cruise because of sludge cleanup. We found out that another boat left along the same route an hour later. We felt that our trip was canceled because there weren't enough people going. We wasted two days of our vacation and costs for transportation to the dock. I don't trust them. Don't waste your money. They never offered anything as some sort of compensation for our troubles.
We took Jazz dinner. Food is OK (nothing compare to what we had in French Quarter reataurants). Crew members are unfriendly. The person in the souvenir store upstair is grumpy. And don't even talk about music. It's the worst Jazz I ever listened and wondered if I really needed to go New Orleans to listen that kind of Jazz. It really does not worth $53.00. Either take cheap daytime tours and listen Jazz in French Quarter (like Preservation Hall) or take Natchez Jazz Dinner. Cajun/Creole Queen really does not worth.
