boat trip down the Mississippi TO New Orleans

by hagert

Hey. Hoping to hear from those who traveled TO or FROM New Orleans on the Mississippi River. Are all the boats big cruise type things ? Or are there boats for frumpy quiet people who like to see things?
Thanks
AH

There are a lot of Stern-wheeler cruises operating up and down the Mississippi. I've never taken a cruise on one but I have fitted-out many and taken trial voyages. The cabins are very comfortable and you do have the essential services. Given the wide beam of these boats you have a slow and stable cruise, perfect for sight-seeing.

I had a wonderful week-long cruise on a paddle-wheel steamboat (American Queen) some years ago. Unfortunately, that company--Delta Queen--has ceased operation. They are hoping to bring it back. It would have been just what you are looking for. I did a quick search, but couldn't find anything comparable. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

The two companies who ran multi-day cruises on the Mississippi River are both out of business.

Wow, there haven't been any since last year. Even the Mississippi Queen is out of service, this is a sad note on the economy.

As I recall the Coast Guard shut down all the paddle boats due to some fire regulation that got passsed a few years ago. They gave them a couple of years to comply, but nobody could do it within a resonable cost. I don't think you will find any "big cruise" ships doing the Mississippi due to the depth of the water.

Travel Tips for New Orleans

Plan Ahead If you want to see these!!

by FAERYWIND

All the cemeterries we tried to see were closed on Sundays!!! Abd they closed by Noon on Saturdays....2:30 or 3 on Weekdays... Just be sure you plan your day alittle ahead of time and dont think you are always going to have time to do it all later... DO it now....My real suggestions is to book a tour... and then you can see it all and not ahve to worry about the times and such!

by Cynigal

Visit the French Quarter. Have your palm read by one of the many fortune tellers. I recommend Mambo Margaret, an older voodoo lady. Eating beignets at Cafe du Monde. Within two hours of landing, I was covered with powdered sugar. Gotta love a city like that.

by KristinaLMF

There is so much action and sometimes caos going on in this city that there are many must see places. When in New Orleans you must go to Bourbon Street, the French Quarters, take the Riverfront Trolly, visit Riverwalk and plantation homes, but most of all enjoy all the authentic foods. My fondest memories were drinking hurricanes at Pat O'Brien's and eating crawfish over newspaper (good old Louisiana style).

While in New Orleans you must have crawfish. If you go to the market yourself be prepared to bring home at least 20 pounds of crawfish (that's how they sell it), cocktail sause, and plenty of COLD beer. It can be messy but so much fun. The newspaper is placed on the table so that when you are finished you just wrap up all the crawfish and throw it easily in the trash.....what a great concept.

by Blondie2

Spend an evening strolling down Bourbon Street regardless of your recreational tastes. Take the River Boat to the Zoo and come back via the trolley through the Garden District. Eat breakfast at Brennans. People watching from a balcony on Bourbon street while eating dinner. Really hard to put my finger on one particular moment. We do miss the 'Love and Let Live' attitude that is simply unavoidable there.

Do it with a friend!

by squeak_tj97

Getting to meet up with my dear old friend from Germany. Tim is now stationed in Portland, Oregon, and was sent on a New Orleans cruise by his wife. She too is awesome! We spent 2 days wondering the streets.
