Departure & Return
Address: 400 Toulouse Street. The Gray Line 'Lighthouse' ticket office is located at Toulouse St and the Mississippi River (Steamboat Natchez Dock), just one block from Jackson Square in the French Quarter.
What To Expect
Take a promenade along the deck as the riverboat begins the float along the Mississippi River. Then find a seat in the cabin or on the outside deck, where you can admire unobstructed views of the striking New Orleans shoreline and soak up some classic jazz tunes performed by a local trio.
Sample an array of sumptuous Louisiana fare, from shrimp and grits to signature bread pudding. Coffee and tea are included with your brunch, or you may purchase wine, mimosas, punch, and Bloody Marys.
Your river cruise ends back at the departure point in New Orleans with plenty of time to sightsee (and walk off your hearty brunch!)
