Focusing on the critical Battle of New Orleans, this cruise is narrated by a costumed re-enactor who takes guests on a journey through the history of the city as we sail downriver to the Chalmette Battlefield at the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. A one-hour shore excursion at the battlefield features a guided tour and talk by National Park Rangers. Onboard the Creole Queen, guests can enjoy a generous lunch buffet, for an additional charge of $14, featuring Creole favorites like jambalaya, gumbo, seafood pasta, and more. The cruise is ideal for families and children in addition to history buffs. Cruises twice daily.
