The Riverboat Cruise In Louisiana You Never Knew Existed
If you’ve ever spent some time in New Orleans, then you’ve probably seen this ship. But the Creole Queen is so much more than just a tourist attraction. With daily cruises and special holiday events, you really should check it out for your next event, or even just a unique way to spend the day.
The Creole Queen is an authentic paddlewheeler that first took her maiden voyage in 1983.
She's 190 feet long and 40 feet wide, and quite the beauty!
Powered by a 24-foot paddlewheel and a fuel efficient diesel-electric system, the Creole Queen seamlessly blends old traditions with modern technology.
The wrought iron trims on the outer deck and all the other small details make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time, yet the A/C and other modern features will make you feel right at home.
The interior design is absolutely stunning, too.
Luxurious Victorian style draperies, parquet dance floors, and wooden accents (made with Louisiana Cypress) all add to the elegant feel of this impressive ship.
This would be perfect for your next event.
You can reserve the entire deck, just one room, or the entire charter depending on your needs. With a capacity of 800 passengers, no event is too big or too small.
They also offer daily daytime and nighttime cruises, as well as special holiday cruises.
This would be a fun, unique way to spend a couple of hours.
One of their daily cruises is the Mississippi River Dinner Jazz Cruise.
Come dance the night away with the talented Sullivan Dabney Jr. and the Muzik Jazz Band while enjoying a delicious Creole inspired buffet. The cruise lasts about 2.5 hours and offers incredible views of the city.
Or perhaps you’re looking to learn a little history.
Their historical river cruise is offered twice a day and focuses on the Battle of New Orleans. A costumed re-enactor will explain the history of the city as you sail down the river towards the Chalmette Battlefield. A one-hour shore excursion at the battlefield featured a guided tour by the park rangers before jumping back on the ship. Bonus! The 10am Battlefield Cruise offers a $10 bottomless bloody Mary and mimosa special!
No matter when you go, you're bound to have a memorable experience aboard the Creole Queen.
