Gray Line New Orleans , 400 Toulouse St, New Orleans, LA 70130, USA

The Gray Line 'Lighthouse' ticket office is located at Toulouse St and the Mississippi River (Steamboat Natchez Dock), just one block from Jackson Square in the French Quarter.

6:00 PM
This activity will end right where it started.
Head to Toulouse Street in the French Quarter and board your beautiful riverboat. This paddlewheel ship — one of the last of its kind in New Orleans — will transport you back to the 19th century when ports bustled with produce-laden cargo ships, steamboats, and clandestine privateering.

Take a stroll along the deck as you begin the journey along the Mississippi River. Then have a seat in the cabin or on the outside deck, where you’ll get unobstructed views of the striking shoreline at dusk, and soak up some live jazz tunes from the Grammy-nominated Dukes of Dixieland, a true New Orleans-style band.

As for dinner, your tableside meal might include anything from chicken and sausage gumbo to cheesy penne pasta. Top it off with signature bread pudding accompanied by coffee and tea.

Your evening cruise ends back at the departure point in the French Quarter.

Please Note: The "starting from" price displayed is based on the cruise only option.

A basic steamboat river tour.
C_C
, Oct 2021
Covid protocols were in place but with proper documentation, boarding the steamboat was very easy. The ship and the dining rooms were clean and seating was comfortable. The Buffet food choices taste good, however they were very basic and limited in selections. As far as sailing the Mississippi River, the steamboat took us in a large loop. During the evening hours it become dark and there really wasn’t much of anything of interest to look at. The live music trio sang well and we’re entertaining but it really wasn’t music to dance to.

The staff were friendly and the river ride was nice. The band was great. The dinner food quality was equal to low end buffet food- and not worth the cost. Recommend to do the cruise without the dinner option

Disappointed in the reservation Tech lack of information
Micheal_B
, Oct 2021
I traveled from Texas, we checked into our hotel and rushed to the terminal only to find out we needed our vaccine records. Of course when we made the reservations this was not mentioned so I didn’t have mine. We were not able to enjoy a romantic cruise celebrating our six year anniversary. I was told that the mayor just made this a requirement, so why were we not informed when making reservations. We were very disappointed. Spent a lot of money to get there and nothing. 😢

The fact that it as my husband’s birthday and he was a bit leary of getting on the boat, but absolutely enjoyed the experience from beginning to end. The food, the atmosphere and he was especially pleased with the calmness of the ride. The weather was amazing! We would most definitely do this again.
