      About this New Orleans, Louisiana tour

      All aboard for a trip back in time. New Orleans is a city that was created, by and large, because of its water access. Bordered by both Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi river, it is a culturally and agriculturally rich mecca. During the early 19th century, the waterways served as one of the country's most important ports. Steamboats, flatboats and sailboats lined the wide berth of the Mississippi river, waiting to unload and on-board merchandise, and, in some cases, human beings.

      Today the city's waterways remain an important trade route and are utilized regularly, but you won't see too many steamboats trolling the waters around Louisiana anymore, unless of course you are lucky enough to get a seat on the NATCHEZ. Embark on your dinner cruise at port and instantly you will be heralded back to a different era in time. You'll experience the breathtaking and enchanting views of the city at night from a distance on the water, before heading for the elaborate and generous buffet. Don't eat too heavy prior to embarking on your cruise, you'll want to sample everything this enormous buffet has to offer. Classic creole has many influences, melding rich flavors with spicy and savory Caribbean seasonings.

      While enjoying the view and an epic dining experience, revel in the soothing sounds of Louisiana jazz music, played by authentic jazz bands from the city. The Dukes of Dixieland, the headliner for this wondrous cruise, are world renowned for their authentic and traditional jazz ensemble. They have played with over 30 symphony orchestras all around the world.

      While your stay on this fine, seaworthy vessel may be short, you'll likely never forget the emotion that is conjured when you see the city at night aboard the cruise, while listening to traditional Jazz.

      A Proper Namesake

      The first steamboat to take to the waters of the United States was named the New Orleans, owned by Robert Fulton and Robert Livingston. It sailed from Pittsburgh to New Orleans in October of 1811. Nicholas Roosevelt, the boat builder, his pregnant wife, daughter and their dog, Tiger, were the first passengers on the steamboat. They reached New Orleans in January of 1812, after enduring the war of 1812 and a series of earthquakes that raddled the regions they were traveling within.
