Jazz Dinner Cruise

Jazz Cruise

Celebrate the mode of transportation from days gone by on board the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen.   Feel the cool river breeze atop the promenade deck and take in the sparkling city skyline as you cruise down the lazy Mississippi…a relaxing way to end a fun-filled day.  When the sun sets, the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen rises to the occasion.  Step on board and cruise with us into the night, where you will see a different side of the city and the sleepless activity of America’s busiest port buzzes.
