This cruise was selected because we had not been exposed to the Southern States along the Mississippi We were interested in learning about the history of the South and more about the Civil War and the plight of the slaves. This itinerary offered what we were looking for. We explored plantations, cemetaries, historical sites, modern day and antebellum architecture. The buses provided for these ...

Crew and staff were always friendly and helpful. The open dining was a great option. Food and service was excellent We loved seeing new parts of the United State that we had never visited begore. We enjoyed being in different port each day and the variety of excursion opportunities. The onboard lectures, classes, etc. were excellent. We enjoyed the evening ...

My wife and I were celebrating our 53rd wedding anniversary on April 20th, 2021 and after not being able to do ANYTHING the previous year, I wanted to do something special. Neither of us had ever been to either Memphis or New Orleans so when I found this cruise it was just what we were looking for. Not only that, but the ship is a STEAMBOAT! We also signed up for the 2 day Elvis and GRACELAND ...

Cruise began in New Orleans (on my bucket list) and we went on a Wednesday and our cruise didn’t begin until Saturday, so we had time to see NOLA or a couple of days. The French Quarter was having a music festival so it was packed with people, but some of the food vendors had some delicious food. We boarded the ship Saturday AM and got underway at 1:00 PM heading towards Memphis, with various ...

Great Cruise with top notch food, entertainment and service. In addition, very enjoyable and informative cruise tours at the ports. This cruise is focused on older adults as not much that would interest children. Small number of people on-board which gives ample opportunity to meet new people. There were some traveling alone, some in groups as well as couples. The ship was kept immaculate and our ...

A trip of a Mississippi Steam boat was an ambition we have had for a long time. WE struggled to arrange direct from the UK. An opportunity arose which we seized as it gave the opportunity to visit New Orleans and Memphis. We found the state rooms very comfortable and well appointed, The food and wine was excellent. Although the dinning room was a little noise which mad it difficult having ...

Never take this cruise. They talk about some great tours and cancel many of them along the way. The food is not good, the service is mostly done by interns that are learning and it is super over priced for receiving close to nothing. Terrible and boring cruise up the Mississippi with almost know good entertainment or activities. The boat even crashed into a sand bar at night - took about 30 ...

for the experience of a river cruise we chose this one. The length seemed right and we wanted to see the south. Being able to do a pre & post stay was also why we selected this cruise. We have done about 10 cruises in the past- but not a river cruise until now. We knew very little about thye geography and did not do any extra research before we came down. The cruise tours hae helped us learn ...

We were referred by a friend/colleague who had been on more than one cruise with this company. The cruise is designed for more mature passengers which was very nice. No one was loud, rude or drunk on this cruise. When I considered that most of the excursions were included in the fee, it is comparable to other cruise lines. I really liked that they didn't try to "nickel and dime" you for ...

We had a delightful introduction to River-cruising in the USA with American Cruise Lines up the Mississippi. Their attention to every detail made the trip pure pleasure for us. And we thank their wonderful chef for accommodation to our vegetarian meal requests. Every staff person on board was helpful, anticipating all needs even before we realized we needed them! The shore excursions at ...
