Important information
Know before you go
• Confirmation will be received at time of booking, unless booked within 4 hours of travel. In this case confirmation will be received as soon as possible, subject to availability
• In order to help preserve the French Quarter from vehicular traffic, it is requested that you please walk, if possible, to the convenient tour departure point - just a short stroll from most downtown hotels.
• Infant rates apply provided they do not occupy a seat.
• Periodically, the riverboat will be out of service for her yearly Coast Guard inspections and general maintenance; all cruises during this time will take place on her sister vessel, the Steamboat Natchez.
