The jazz band was excellent. The night time views of the city were gorgeous. The food was okay, not enough vegetarian options

May 2022

Our Uber driver dropped us at the wrong boat We didn't make it to the right location before the cruise departed. So disappointed. Any chance we can cruise today?

April 2022

Do Bourbon Street early on your trip, so much to see and do in French Quarters. Take the Swamp trip and Jazz Cruise to be sure among other things.

The Jazz band was very good. Even though it was 80 degrees at the start of our night ride, the wind is chilly very quickly. My fault for not being prepared. My advice take a jacket.
