We are happy to be able to offer our popular Jazz Cruise again after being shut down for 5 months! Unfortunately, at this time, live entertainment is not allowed indoors or outdoors according to city mandates. We will still provide music for our guests to enjoy and dance to as we cruise down the Mighty Mississippi River! For the inconvenience of not being able to provide live music, we have discounted our pricing. Capacity is limited, so reservations are highly required.

Step back into the glamour and romance of the riverboat era with a cruise aboard the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen! Experience the lively sounds of traditional New Orleans music while enjoying a lavish Creole Buffet in our elegantly appointed dining room. After dinner, and maybe a little dancing, enjoy a classic New Orleans cocktail and sweet Mississippi River breezes on our promenade deck as the city skyline slips by under a canopy of stars. This nighttime cruise is pure New Orleans.
