Cruise into a brilliant and romantic sunset aboard the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen! Underneath enchanting skyline views enjoy the lively sounds from Sullivan Dabney, Jr. and the Muzik Jazz band while delighting your taste buds with a deliciously prepared Creole-styled meal (if option is chosen). Grab one or two classic New Orleans cocktails inside at the bar, then take a stroll outside along elegantly designed wrought iron trimmed railings for a night full of stars and warm banter. Become part of the city's unique energy and let the sweet Mississippi River breeze sweep you off your senses onto the dance floor atop our promenade deck for a night full of pure New Orleans magic.

Went to New Orleans for our anniversary and my wife had always talked about going on one of the paddleboats. We went on this one and it was very nice. Music was good, would've preferred a jazz band with more instruments but that doesn't take away from what the band did. They were good, the food was authentic and good, and the atmosphere was romantic. It was everything we expected and more.
Amazing experience

My experience at paddlewheeler was amazing, starting with the staff, they were very professionals and very helpful. My other good impressions was the food OMG so gooood, yeah that's right I had a second plate. And the trip was amazing and relaxing, enjoyed the beautiful view of that amazing city. I would definitely do it all over again.

Great experience I would definitely do it again ! I went solo and had a great time. I would recommend it to anyone looking to go, get the smaller boats they are better !

This was amazing. It was a beautiful smooth ride, the food was delicious but our waiter wasn't good at all. We were sat down and then found out from another table that we could go and get food, and that we could order drinks through the waiter. He was far more invested in his other table. We had to always flag him down for drink orders, that we ended up just going to bar ourselves. He never engaged with us, he just shrugged us off or looked inconvenienced by us ordering.We also saw a woman cut off from the bar, who was not happy about it but clearly intoxicated. She then when to her waiter (Our waiter too) and whinged to him, so he got her another drink.Would still recommend the tour, it was just the waiter we had ruined the evening a bit for us.The Band was awesome, they took requests and nailed it each time.

This is a great way to spend an evening in New Orleans as long as you get the weather which we did, a balmy 86 degrees watching the sunset over the city in a gentle breeze with a decent hot buffet and attentive staff.

Enjoyed sailing on the great Mississippi with delicious food and jazz playing in the background. Ten of us took this excursion and had a great time.
