  3. Queen of the Mississippi
Best experience anyone could imagine unless their are more hours in a day. Staterooms, bath, and balcony were exactly as advertised with room to share for two. Ideal to be able to listen (or not) to river historian on ship radio broadcast from lounge while lounging on balcony and watching the river sites. Locally sourced meals were prepared by top notch chefs and served to high standards. Excursions on time and high quality. Guides except for one who was ill were excellent and from the location; their knowledge was presented with humor and candor. All needs seemed to be provided for disabled folks routinely with gentle care. Crew was professional, well trained, and passenger service centered, always happy and friendly. High river level never interfered with our itenerary since Captain adjusted sailing times to fit without compromising any activities. Sailing was smooth and seemed effortless. We will sail with them again!

Cabin Review

Cabin 309
Plenty of square feet, drawer and closet space for two. Suitcases nested and fit under clothes in closet. Under bed storage also. Comfortable chairs in room and sitting area on balcony was perfect. Privacy from neighbors by screens of canvas. Rooms serviced twice daily. Comfy bed, quality linen. Quiet, relaxing environment. Spa products provided; no need to bring your own. Keurig and TV in room. Movie DVD library available but too busy enjoying cruise to use them!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • City Tour
    Delightful city resident who knew and loved her city. She navigated us through the million dollar homes to the Katrina evidence to the city sites. It was my first trip there and she gave me respect for the unique residents of the city. I have a much better understanding of the city. Having gone to the museum in Baton Rouge earlier, it was a great pairing to combine the historic past with the Mississippi River's past and future. It is more than what you get from media, even those who were born and raised there. She gave you the viewpoints of residents of New Orleans who call it home.

  • Oak Alley
    Beautiful home! Carefully and lovingly maintained. Guides well prepared. So peaceful to walk under the oaks in the quiet of its day.
