  3. Queen of the Mississippi
This was our first cruise on an American Cruise Line ship. From the time we embarked on the ship in New Orleans until we disembarked 7 nights later, the quality of the service, the state rooms, the food, the outings, the guides and the nightly entertainment was exquisite. The size of the ship which takes 150 passengers is just perfect for us, who did not know anyone before we got onboard. There is open seating which gives you a chance to alternate dinner companions and make new friends. There is no chance to get hungry as the meals are frequent and of gourmet quality. The muddy river itself has a limited charm, but the stops along the way to plantations and battle fields make up for that. Personally, living in the Northeast and not brought up in the US I learned a lot about the south and the civil war. The guides at the different sites were excellent and informative. Every day is filled with activities and you can participate or stay on board relaxing with a good book or movie. The entertainment was well chosen and every night different and yet with a connection to the south. All in all we had a wonderful experience on the Queen of the Mississippi, and look forward to more river cruises.
