We took a dinner cruise and chose this boat because our resort gave us a $18.00 discount coupon off the $144 regular price. We bought the tickets early in the day in order to avoid any lines later. We got to the gangplank in the first dozen people and when they started boarding we were told we needed boarding passes !!! I had to run back to the ticket booth stand in line for 20 minutes before getting the passes, the person there was the same as when we bought the tickets just said sorry when I complained that we should have got thes passes when we paid. As a result we were only able to get a poorer table location as all the others had been taken by earlier guests.
The buffet style food choice was mediocre, and not hot, the salads soggy and the brisket dry. The best part was the bread pudding which was very good.
The Jazz band was excellent and had a great repertoire also the table service for wine and drinks was first class.
We enjoyed the after dinner seating on the upper decks looking at the lights of New Orleans.
Overall I am not sure that the trip was worth the money, but the experience of being on a paddlewheeler certainly was.
There is another paddlewheeler Nachez, I think the next time we will try that.
