Was a rainy day and no refund or changes permitted in the Booking. Worst is you book and until you receive the confirmation you are able to see, you can’t make changes

We took my granddaughter, who is visiting from the state of WA, on the lunch cruise. It was a first for all three of us. We enjoyed the lunch, which I have termed, “A taste of Louisiana”, because we were able to experience a variety of delicious foods Louisiana has to offer, including the banana foster and southern bread pudding. We all enjoyed the whole package! Thank you for making this cruise available.

My family and I really enjoyed the brunch experience. When we first arrived it was a bit confusing and they took awhile to serve us. Our waitress Monica was awesome she really tried hard to make sure we were taken care of! She made the experience great. I took my 16 year old twins on this cruise for their birthday and they loved it!
