Mardi Gras Jazz Brunch Cruise

Let the good times roll year round with a Mardi Gras themed jazz brunch cruise as it winds down the mighty Mississippi. Explore the decks and let the sights and sounds of the French Quarter entice your senses, as the CITY OF NEW ORLEANS takes you to the infamous Mardi Gras World. Indulge in a selection of quintessential brunch options as the sounds of jazz fill the majestic riverboat. Adorn yourself with a Mardi Gras bead and join in that number as you partake in a festive second line parade, before departing for an optional upgrade tour of Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World. Learn more about New Orleans Carnival tradition and see Mardi Gras come to life, as you watch artists craft the stunning floats that will eventually roll down St. Charles Avenue.  


What You Can Expect:

Meet at the Lighthouse Ticket Office on the Toulouse Street Wharf in the historic French Quarter, before boarding the newly remodeled Riverboat CITY OF NEW ORLEANS. 
Receive your complimentary Mardi Gras bead upon boarding as you are seated at your table in the main dining room. {Talk about menu items}
Enjoy the Captain’s narration from the comfort of your table, or make your way out to the deck for picturesque views of the shoreline scenery. 
End your Mardi Gras experience with a celebratory second line parade lead by the house band before guests who purchased the optional Mardi Gras World tour disembark. With this upgrade, guests will get up close to the artists as they build the floats that will eventually make their way down St. Charles Avenue.  
Jazz Brunch Cruise guests will return to the departure point at the Bienville Street wharf in the French Quarter with plenty of time left to explore the Big Easy!
