What you can expect

Step back in time on a New Orleans jazz cruise with dinner aboard the historic Creole Queen paddlewheeler boat. Treat yourself to a delightful evening out on the Mighty Mississippi River accompanied by the tunes of a Dixieland jazz band on the Creole Queen dinner cruise.

As you board her open-air decks to the drifting sounds of live jazz, the sun slips behind the horizon, painting the sky in shades of pink and gold. For a pure New Orleans experience, you can opt to enjoy a lavish Creole buffet dinner onboard filled with New Orleans cusine. Fill your plate with classics like delicious jambalaya, red beans and rice, and chicken and sausage gumbo, paired perfectly with crumbly hunks of cornbread.

Take to the dance floor to move and groove to the sounds of Dixieland jazz, consider grabbing a craft cocktail from the onboard bar, or step outside to enjoy the fresh air as you sail down the Mississippi at twilight.

  • Caesar salad
