Sail the waters of the mighty, muddy Mississippi during the nightly dinner jazz cruise. The ship boards at 7 p.m. and departs the dock at 8 p.m.
Constructed in Moss Point, Mississippi, the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen took her maiden voyage on October 1, 1983. She is an authentic paddlewheeler powered by a 24 foot diameter paddlewheel and the most modern, fuel efficient GE diesel-electric system ever installed in a boat of this class. Even though the Creole Queen would have been right at home in the New Orleans of 1850, passengers of that era could never have conceived of a paddlewheeler with her luxury, comfort and safety. Ninety tons of air conditioning and heating keep the interior spaces pleasant all year round. Luxurious private rooms, stereo music and sound systems, modern restrooms and handicapped accessible facilities all combine to make the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen a true “floating palace”.
Customizing parties is no problem at New Orleans Paddlewheels. You can reserve an entire deck or the entire boat allowing privacy and greater flexibility in planning your party. You can choose any type of entertainment you desire. You can remain dockside or cruise down the mighty Mississippi River. We can assist you with transportation and hotel rooms. The options are endless with New Orleans Paddlewheels.
The Creole Queen features outer decks with authentically patterned wrought iron trims inviting guests to stroll back in time as they settle into the mood of a bygone era. The interiors are richly appointed with plush Victorian style draperies, soft period lighting, wooden parquet dance floors, and Louisiana Cypress bars accented with brass railing for a warm and welcoming setting.
