JOSEPH NEWMAN STONE HOUSE: This antebellum home in Natchez, MS was in the Stone Family for 140 years.  Joseph Britton Stone now operates it as a musical tour venue, art gallery and bed and breakfast.  As part of the tour, he entertains his guests on the 1903 Steinway parlor grand.  After the tour and intimate concert he serves a local praline liqueur or champagne!
Memphis Blues!! Right off Beale Street, this Rock and Blues Museum is a must see to understand the music scene and history of Memphis!
Ship musician (part of the Mario and Norm duo) Norm Hamlet on steel guitar. He was the bandleader for Merle Haggard for 49 years!

Upper Mississippi Cruise

We’ve always wanted to cruise along the Mississippi River, and we’re glad we did it with American Cruise Line. It was an enjoyable and relaxing cruise experience. We had a terrific guest speaker, Bobby Durham, who not only gave port talks, but also entertained us with his banjo. Piano players Greg on the first 7 days and Jeff on the second 7 days were very talented and kept us tapping our toes ...

I'd never had a chance to see the heartland of the U.S., so this was the perfect getaway. The two weeks on the Upper Mississippi gave me an appreciation of the beauty of this part of the country...and the incredible Mississippi. Having sailed with American Cruise Lines before, I knew to expect wonderful service from the staff, tasty offerings from the chef, and meaningful excursions including ...

We recently went on the lower Mississippi River cruise on the American Melody ship. This is a brand new ship and it was wonderful. Everything we so nice but the best part are the crew. There wasn't anything you could not ask for that they would not try to arrange or provide for you. They were courteous and professional but yet very warm and friendly. The shore trips were great, they were so ...

We’ve always wanted to cruise on the Mississippi, and decided to take the plunge this spring. We chose American Melody because we had been on her sister ship, Harmony, last year in the Colombia / Snake River cruise and we loved the size and layout of the ship and the ample cabins. Melody did not disappoint, and neither did the Mississippi. My favorite part of the trip was the onboard ...

This was our third cruise on American Cruise Lines, and our first cruise on the Mississippi river. We sailed from New Orleans to Memphis Tennessee in the spring of 2022. Our trip was fantastic! From start to finish, everything ran smoothly, tours were on time with really knowledgeable guides, and the staff was as accommodating as possible in meeting the various needs of the guests. The ...

What a wonderful decision it was to book a trip on the Lower Mississippi, aboard the beautiful new ship American Melody, and CRUISE IN STYLE into the New Year!

I am a musician so while others seek history on these cruises I have a special affinity for the music of the Lower Mississippi region. We choose the Melody because it is American Cruise Line's newest ship that just took to the river in August of this year! The food was great an there was plenty of it! The staff did everything in their power to see to everyone's needs. The crew is ...

First of all, this new ship is amazing, the decor is sophisticated. I love the plants added to the upper sun deck area. This is my fifth ACL cruise. You won't find a friendlier group of passengers and crew. If you haven't taken the small ship experience you are missing out. You meet people from all over the US. The rooms are spacious with a full size bathroom. The food had been great. I am ...

My husband and I were thrilled to book one of the American Melody's first river cruises as it debuted on the Mississippi! It exceeded our expectations! The ship is beautifully appointed and when we relaxed on the 4th floor outside deck we could almost imagine we were on our own private yacht...with a staff to guest ratio of approximately 2 to 1 we were guaranteed to have phenomenal service! ...

New, comfortable ship, Great staff. Informative lectures, interesting excursions, and wonderful food. All inclusive makes each day easy to manage. Large stateroom, balcony large enough for two chairs and a table, walk in shower. Small lounge on each of the four floors for relaxation, card playing, puzzle working, computering (complete with printer). Quiet, swift elevator. All areas clean, and kept ...
