Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Take a proper water road ride with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get two adult jazz cruise tickets at New Orleans Paddlewheels (an $80 value). This Groupon includes two complimentary cocktails, but it is not valid for dinner on board.
The luxurious Creole Queen takes passengers on a two-hour cruise filled with peppy live jazz, a Creole buffet, and starlit views of the city's skyline. The old-world-style steamboat with a 24-foot paddlewheel combines modern upgrades, such as heat and air conditioning, wheelchair accessibility, and working restrooms, with classic charm, including a full bar, outer promenade decks for promenading outdoors, Victorian-style draperies, gaslight-inspired period lighting, parquet dance floors, and Bing Crosby. Dinner (though not included with your Groupon) can be purchased on board for $24 per person. Each cruise to another era begins boarding at 7 p.m. and departs at 8 p.m. from the Canal Street dock on the Riverwalk, returning at 10 p.m. Call to make your reservations.
Cruise times may be changed or cancelled due to weather and safety concerns.
