Thanksgiving Riverboat Cruise in New Orleans?

  • a

I know it's a little late, but I'm looking for something special to do for a Thanksgiving dinner in New Orleans. I've heard there is a riverboat cruise with jazz, buffet, etc. Does anyone know anything about that and/or who to contact to book it?

Or have any other suggestions for an interesting/fun Thanksgiving dinner?

  1. but I know they have the cruises for Christmas. It's part of the Papa Noel series. I went a few years ago and the food wasn't spectacular but was certainly good. What was spectacular were the people I met. Everyone is seated at long tables and you meet everyone around you. We ended up meeting a couple from Venezuala and a couple from California. The woman was the first female surgeon in the States. They had a great jazz band too.
    Perhaps, for the Riverboat Cruise, you are thinking of the Natchez. Go to either or and do a search. I've never been on it and am not sure if they cruise on holidays.
