NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Steamboat Company welcomed Scott Nesbitt as the new Executive Chef for the Natchez.

Less than one year later, the 1200 passenger Steamboat NATCHEZ was christened. New Orleans Steamboat Company is well recognized and regarded for its contribution to the New Orleans cultural landscape and tourism industry. Since 1975, the Steamboat NATCHEZ has sailed daily offering Mississippi River cruises featuring live jazz, New Orleans cuisine and the best view in town.
