Unique and thoroughly enjoyed: American Queen Cruise Review by ddcruiser
Overall Member Rating
Unique and thoroughly enjoyed
Embarkation: New Orleans
The food was Southern, Cajun, and Creole for the most part. We did have steak, lobster tails, and prime rib as well. We ate breakfast in the Front Porch most days which had typical breakfast food, including grits of course, and made to order eggs, omelets, and pancakes. Lunch we usually had in the beautiful dining room which always had a buffet with many salads, soup of the day, carvery of the day, and also menu items. Dinner was four courses with many choices and always delicious.
Our room was very comfortable. We could More sit on the deck and relax and read. We also could sleep with the doors open to the Mississippi. The boat is beautiful, well-maintained, and has many options for relaxing in public spaces.
Each port was interesting--Natchez, St. Francisville, Vicksburg, Baton Rouge, and fabulous plantations such as Nottaway. Hop-on and Hop-off buses were provided in the cost of the trip. If you chose, you could have "special excursions". We took two of those and were impressed by both.
All in all, we had a wonderful time and experience. Less
