My brother had recommended that we do this particular steamboat experience, and it was really enjoyable. We liked having a trip along the river while we explored the boat and got a different view of the New Orleans area. The Natchez is a great boat, and there's a real sense of stepping back in time when you're on it. We paid extra to do the lunch option, and we didn't love the food that day, but listening to the band was fun, and overall we were really glad we spent some time on the Steamboat Natchez - would definitely recommend it as a really good experience for any other tourists!

Thank you Natalie. We appreciate you joining us. The Natchez will be going into her annual layup, or renovation time, but our new boat - Riverboat CITY of NEW ORLEANS will be cruising the Mississippi in her place.

Bought tickets in early July for a 9/8 cruise. Company contacted me today saying they had to cancel due to COVID but they're still doing Friday, Saturday and Sunday cruises. Apparently COVID takes the weekends off. I'm so tired of lazy scammy companies blaming COVID on everything. Avoid this cruise like the plague but choose the plague if you have the choice between the two. Was able to book on another cruise boat for the same day luckily.

Due to the business demand we are only able to cruise 4 days a week right now. We, like many other businesses, evaluate amost weekly to see if we can accommodate more guests and put our people back to work more often. Consider this- if a restaurant can seat 100 and only 2 people ask to be seated the whole night, would the restaurant bring in a staff of 25 to open that night? We are all doing the best we can. That is not a "scam".

I have sent several emails requesting a refund for a July 4th event that was cancelled. I understand the shutdown but if someone can respond to the “good reviews”on here someone should be able to respond to the many emails I have sent. IJS

What a delightful way to spend an afternoon, or two hours. We picked a good weather day and enjoyed sitting on the deck as the Natchez cruised down and upriver, with great narration of historic and interesting sites along the river. You can buy food and drinks on board and visit the engine room of a paddlewheeler, one of the few remaining ones in operation. Quite educational. Provides a small glimpse of life on the river.

We had a great time on board the Steamboat, we had the buffet lunch as part of our ticket price and it was great! We really enjoyed the scenery, the commentary was wonderful and it was all round a great experience that we haven't had before, would definitely recommend it.
