The school year has ended and Summer is here! The New Orleans Steamboat Company invites local families to celebrate summer on the annual Family Fun Day on the Riverboat CITY of NEW ORLEANS. Heavily discounted tickets are available. The cruise boards at 2:00 pm and sails 2:30-4:30 pm. It features fun, entertainment, and games for the whole family. (ex. Balloon artists, spray tattoos, a princess or Super Hero) The lunch buffet is an optional purchase as are snacks and beverages. If interested, we encourage you to book lunch early as we frequently sell out. We recommend leaving strollers at home as there are no elevators between the decks and little or no stroller parking areas onboard. Weather permitting, we will offer supervised "Stroller Parking" on the dock beginning at 1:30 pm - until we fill up. Be sure to dress for the New Orleans weather as many of the activities take place on the outside decks. Check back for details and information.
