I think that New Orleans is one of my favourite places in the USA. I certainly considered living there at one time and probably still would if I wasn’t seriously addicted to the South Florida weather 🙂

There’s so much to see and do but the highlight of course is the music. And what better way to experience New Orleans jazz than on a paddlewheeler on the Mississippi?

Yes, listening to music in the bars of Bourbon Street is fantastic – or at my favourite, Snug Harbor on Frenchman Street. But there’s nothing that can whisk you back in time in the same way as a jazz cruise aboard the Creole Queen.

You can board the Creole Queen at 7 pm and enjoy live music and your favourite cocktails. You’re in New Orleans so why not make that a Hurricane? Then at 8 pm the paddleboat cruise begins and you’ll enjoy a full two hours cruising the river and listening to genuine New Orleans jazz.

There’s also a similar cruise that serves a lavish Creole dinner aboard the Creole Queen too. You can add to your New Orleans experience by dining while you listen to soulful jazz and your buffet dinner will include such New Orleans specialties as gumbo and jambalaya.

All this in the luxurious surroundings of a beautifully reproduced Victorian paddleboat.
