The Paddlewheeler Creole Queen in New Orleans
If you’re going to cruise down the Mississippi River, you’d better do it in style. Climb aboard the Creole Queen for an old-fashioned paddlewheel river cruise in New Orleans, one of the most unique ways to see The Big Easy. Enjoy the sights and sounds of an elegant dinner cruise or learn about local lore as you admire famous landmarks.
First launched in 1983, this authentic paddlewheeler is powered by a 24-foot paddlewheel, plus a modern GE diesel electric system. Despite its modern construction, the Creole Queen is a true testament to 19th-century New Orleans, when it wouldn’t have been unusual to see ships just like this one cruising the Mississippi.
No matter the month you pick for a cruise down the Mississippi River, the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen comes equipped with air conditioning and heating, luxurious private rooms, a modern sound system, updated restrooms, three private dining areas, and much more.
Once aboard, you’ll delight in a decadent meal inside one of the main private dining rooms, complete with plush Victorian-style draperies, ambient lighting, and gorgeous wood parquet floors. Then breathe in the fresh air and soak up the sights on the boat’s outer deck that invites you back in time.
Not sure which tour to book? Don’t worry, there are a variety of experiences to choose from. For a musical journey under the stars along the Mississippi River, join the Dinner Jazz Cruise featuring a lavish Creole buffet in elegant, period-styled dining quarters. Looking for some history? Opt for the Chalmette Battlefield River Cruise, a sojourn past the French Quarter and the Port of New Orleans to the site of the 1815 Battle of New Orleans. The Creole Queen has other seasonal tours, which you can see here .
Explore New Orleans in style on the kind of tour you won’t find anywhere else when you board the Creole Queen. Click here to book your next cruise.
