We did the 11:30am time slot and would recommend queuing up early to get seats in the shade once you're on board. After reading some bad reviews of the food we opted out, and I think it was nice to have no distraction from the...More

Went with friends down to the battlefield at Chalmette, passed wharves, then factories and interesting architecture like the Steamboat houses in Araby. The commentary was informative, lunch was good and watching the paddlewheel propelling the boat was an added bonus, lot's of fun.
