Purchased dinner cruise. Even though it was a cold and rainy night in the middle of November, my group still enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Drinks are not included in this dinner package, just buffet style with a live band and of course the boat ride. Staff was friendly, food was good and even without drinks you hardly felt the boat moving or swaying.

The Jazz band and the bartender was great! The cruise was very relaxing. I just wish it wasn't so late. I wanted to be on the cruise for the sunset, but the cruise was after the sunset.

A bit tricky to redeem. Cannot redeem electronically and have to go to the booth to have them print it out. Luckily the lady at the booth was helpful but the lady on the phone I had to call was beyond rude. Luckily we had planned for additional time beforehand. Would tread cautiously for prospective customers in terms of redemption policies. Otherwise a decent boat ride.

About Creole Queen

With its maiden voyage held a mere 30 years ago, the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen seems to break the rules of time. From its outside, the vessel looks straight out of the 1800s. A giant, 24-foot paddle wheel propels the boat up and down the Mississippi River, and its soft lighting, wrought-iron trim, and Victorian-style draperies call to mind a bygone era. Look past those features, however, and you find modern equipment. Air conditioning and heating keep things comfortable, while a fuel-efficient, diesel-electric engine would make a steam-powered vessel scream like a tea kettle with envy.

Once that engine churns to life, the paddle wheeler can take more than 800 passengers at a time on two types of tours. A Creole buffet and live music take over the interior dining rooms during the Dinner Jazz Cruise. The Chalmette Battlefield River Cruise, on the other hand, focuses on history, with the captain spinning tails of local landmarks and key events, and the passengers disembarking to explore the historic site of the 1815 Battle of New Orleans.
