Fam­ily Fu­eled

Where New Orleans - - THE GUIDE -

Set off on one of the steam­boat Natchez‘ s (p. 46) daily river cruises, and your at­ten­tion will first be drawn to its mas­sive red pad­dle­wheel. But what re­ally fu­els the last au­then­tic steam­boat still ply­ing the mighty river is a trio of fa­ther/son teams for whom life on the Mis­sis­sippi is very much a fam­ily af­fair. From the Natchez’s pi­lot­house to its boiler room, th­ese three sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion crews have spent a com­bined 174 years cruis­ing the Cres­cent City water­front. In cel­e­bra­tion of Fa­ther’s Day and sum­mer’s ar­rival, the steam­boat hosts a Fam­ily Fun Day ex­cur­sion June 17 at 2:30 pm with spe­cial en­ter­tain­ment and kid­friendly games. All aboard!
