Steamboat Natchez Riverboat Cruise.
There sure were a lot of things to do in New Orléans, and this day we went on a river cruise along the Mississippi River during our vacation aboard the steamboat Natchez, departing from the center of the historic French Quarter.
SS. Natchez, is a sternwheel steamboat that was mostly made of steel, in case you wonder. The cruise takes 2-hours. There was a live jazz band during the tour. Buffet food, snacks and beverages were available.
The sounds of the Steam Calliope was remarkable upon boarding the boat, and we saw the steam engine room.
It was a nice informative trip about the New Orleans riverfront, to see the historic factory buildings, and passing commercial boat traffic. The view of modern New Orleans buildings and the New Orleans Bridge were also very interesting!
Steamboat NATCHEZ is the last authentic steamboat on the Mississippi River.
