Booze, Brunch & Jazz Cruise on the Riverboat City of New Orleans

About this experience

What you’ll do:

Climb aboard this marvelous sternwheel riverboat—THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS—and let the good times roll down the mighty Mississippi.  You and your crew will soak in captivating views of the French Quarter while dancing to soulful live jazz.

  • Queen of the Mississippi (clink champagne flutes with the party as that big wheel keeps on turning).
  • Brunch, jazz, and stunning French Quarter views (enough said) 
  • The perfect day-hang (get boozy and festive on the Mississippi before your night out in NOLA)
  • Instagrams for dayz (dress like riverboat belles and stage your photo shoot)

Amazing time with lots of information by the narrator, beautiful sites, amazing music, and lots of seating for those just sightseeing. If not doing the package with food- don’t worry! They still sell food in the lower deck

We love this cruise so much! It took us down the river for scenic views paired with a cery informational audio tour. The brunch and drinks were delicious, and the jazz band on the top deck really rounded out a pleasant NOLA experience.

We absolutely loved this excursion for my bach! It was easy to get tickets printed at the dock and the boat had indoor and outdoor spaces. Was super fun even though it started our rainy and was a different experience for out of town friends.

The booze, brunch & jazz cruise was amazing. The food was great, classic New Orleans style brunch. Jumbo, grits, bacon. The whole works. The music was the best part. Just was just something magical about listening to jazz while sailing the Mississippi River was an experience of a life time. The Bach app really helped facilitate and enjoy the experience overall. If I go back to New Orleans for whatever reason. I would deff do the brunch jazz cruise again!

We loved the Booze, Brunch, & Jazz Cruise. First, the food on this was actually AMAZING. I'm a foodie, so I have high standards. As soon as you sit down, you're fed. (My kind of place). We also had a blast on the second deck listening to the jazz band, dancing, and taking photos outside with our crew. The cruise wasn't too long or too short, and it definitely felt like a very "New Orleans" experience. We loved it!
