Relaxing riverboat cruise with great food and music! But our server, Monquele, definitely made the difference! He was super attentive and answered all of our questions...and had a fun personality! Would definitely recommend for a night in the Big Easy! Thanks, Monquele!

This is a wonderful way to view New Orleans from a different angle. Very relaxing and our guide, Wendell, was awesome. Had a great creole lunch after visiting a battlefield. I really enjoyed.

We're sorry you had an ok experience with us. I do agree that the Queen takes you down the river smoothly, creating a relaxing atmosphere. That is great to hear you felt relaxed. Most just sit back and enjoy the cumulus clouds and the smell...More

Seems like you had a great time! Charles + the State Park Ranger make a good Battle of New Orleans historian team. Thank you for your review.

I would've loved it just as much as a solo traveler. As soon as you're done eating, get a drink, head upstairs and enjoy the music as the sun goes down. Not awkward at all.
