Enjoyed the cruise and the band. - Nice dinner cruise, the weather was perfect for the cruise. The waitress and bartender were very friendly along with the other staff. The food was not the best, seamed to be overcooked.

More for Senior Citizens - It was chilly that day..Def bring a jacket due to weather dropping n add being on water ..I thought they would talk about the river n what we seen alongside..To me its more for senior citizens. VERY boring..2hrs is too long to be on a river with no one telling you about New Orleans

Good food but a bad view. - The food was great. I expected a lot more on the scenic portion. There was not a view of the city at all. All I saw was boats and abandoned buildings.

Okay but pretty pricey for an average couple of hours - The food was decent but nothing to get excited about. Unfortunately being a captive audience if you want a margarita be prepared. ONE was $19. The band was pretty good. For us it was just we’ve done it but we don’t need to ever do again.

Boat ride - Not the type of music I was really looking for and the whole ride seemed very quick. The ride itself was very short.
