Natchez Steamboat Jazz Lunch and Cruise
Come with us aboard the Natchez Steamboat for a Jazz Cruise and a buffet lunch. The Natchez Steamboat is the ninth steamer to bear the name NATCHEZ. She has never been beaten in a race. It’s a line that follows the course of river history, from the placid antebellum plantation era through the turbulence of the Civil War to the Gay Nineties, and, ultimately, the new millennium. The NATCHEZ calliope trills a melody into the air while the great wheel, 25 tons of white oak churns the heavy waters of the great Mississippi River. So come along and step back in time aboard this magnificent steamboat. Our bus will pick up at Ochsner Kenner Medical Center at 9:30 a.m. and return at 3:00 p.m. The cost is $55.00, this includes transportation, buffet lunch, jazz entertainment and a short river cruise.
