Full description
Sit back and enjoy the views or a drink at the bar while journeying down the Mississippi river. Learn about New Orleans' complex, but interesting story, focusing on the critical Battle of New Orleans. This cruise is narrated by an expert, local guide who takes guests on a journey of the imagination downriver to the Chalmette Battlefield at the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve.

As you travel to the battlefield, learn about the settlement of New Orleans, its river lores, and historical landmarks that lay along the banks of the Mississippi River.
