Rolling On The Mississippi River With The Creole Queen!

June 11, 2011 • By


When you make plans to visit New Orleans, you already know that great food, finger snapping jazz and spectacular scenery is on the menu. What’s even more special is that the Creole Queen riverboat gives you all that and more. I’m sure that you’ve seen paddle wheel boats on movies like “Showboat”, but it’s pretty amazing to see the expansive ship in front of you as you watch the red wheel revolve round and around cutting a swath through the great Mississippi.

I guess I am a romantic at heart, but I immediately envisioned an image of a southern gentleman walking on the promenade deck with his lady love. Perhaps, this is why some people choose to have their wedding on-board this ship. We were privileged to witness a wedding reception during our evening Dinner Jazz Mississippi River Cruise which was a treat and I believe a must do for anyone visiting the city.
