This excursion will operate by paddle-wheeler. Depending on the ships berth, there will be either a short walk to the paddle-wheeler or a brief coach ride. The boat ride will last around 2 hours. Iced tea and coffee are included and additional drinks may be purchased on board if required. Please remember local currency. The dinner is a casual Creole style buffet which is typical of New Orleans. It is common practice on board the paddle-wheeler for all drinks to be served in plastic cups. This tour is primarily designed to allow you to enjoy the jazz sounds and paddle-wheeler experience and is not a scenic river cruise. Smart casual wear and flat shoes are recommended. There are 2 steep flights of steps to reach the upper decks. The paddle-wheeler is not exclusive to P&O Cruises. The tour duration is variable depending on boarding time at the paddle-wheeler.
