I truly enjoyed the Creole Queen the staff was truly outstanding. They welcomed you onboard. The food was sooo delicious. It is served buffet syle with a robust creole flavor. I really enjoyed tge bread pudding. The only thing you have to pay for are your drinks. They are reasonably priced The bartender makes great drinks. I really enjoyed the band they sang happy birthday and called out those who were celebrating. They also took special requests. This boat ride was the best of my overall trip. It was soooo relaxing. If you want to relax and eat dinner I truly recommend this trip. It was the perfect way to top off my birthday with that special someone. The price was well worth it. I will do this cruise again.

Nice Jazz Cruise
Dawn_C

The cruise was nice. Usually the band plays on the top floor but stayed inside since it was cold outside, which was nice. The band was nice but they didn’t seem to have a planned list on songs to play. They sung happy birthday about 4 times and kept asking if we had any requests. The food was okay. I think doing it later in the year when the sun is just setting and the evening is warmer would be a better experience. I’d try it again but probably won’t do the seated meal next time. I wasn’t very impressed with the food.

I’m glad I went, but I wouldn’t recommend it because of the cost vs the experience.

The food was good, but the jazz band wasn’t as entertaining as I expected. There also wasn’t a lot of drink options and for some reason, coffee wasn’t included for me. I was asked to pay, but I noticed that other people were brought coffee to their tables without paying extra. I had paid for the dinner, keep in mind.

Very peaceful! We had done a day time tour prior and found it to be more informative. Would have liked to have had some info from the guide, driver, etc. Excellent buffet meal!

Loved it! The band was excellent and took requests. The food was delightful and yummy! John was fantastic seating us. Lance in the band visited personally with us. It was our first time and we will definitely go it again.

Great food on a pretty boat- Jazz music lacking..
Christy_H
, Dec 2021
The food on the boat was absolutely fantastic. The boat is beautiful and the staff was excellent. Where it lacked was the “Jazz” part of the cruise. Several of us all commented that the group was subpar at best. When you pay for a “Jazz cruise,” you hope that is what you will get, so that was disappointing. The river view is decent enough and the fog that formed as the evening went on was cool.
