Orlando, Florida – August 4, 2015 – (INTUITION by Perspective Group) — VacationCondos.com has confirmed the company will host a New Orleans-style celebration aboard the Creole Queen Steamboat as part of its Platinum Sponsorship of the GNEX 2016 Timeshare Leaders Conference, Feb. 2 – 5, in the Big Easy.

The online vacation rental provider is known for delivering exceptional travel experiences, and the Creole Queen Steamboat Dinner Cruise will be no exception. Timeshare industry professionals will immerse themselves in Louisiana culture on this cruise, Feb. 3, along the Mississippi River.

Paddlewheeler Creole Queen will treat delegates to the glamour and romance of New Orleans’ Riverboat Era circa 1850.  This magnificent “floating palace” mixes historical charm with modern comforts in spirited dinner cruises that are pure New Orleans. There are richly appointed dining rooms, a state-of-the-art sound system, an elegant promenade deck, lavish Creole dining, classic New Orleans cocktails, live jazz, dancing, casino tables and cool river breezes.
