My husband and I are seniors as were most of the other passengers on this cruise. We had a wonderful time visiting the grand plantation homes along the Mississippi and the Vicksburg Civil War Battleground. The service on the riverboat was excellent as was the food and the entertainment. The cruise staff made it very easy for people with mobility issues to enjoy the ports of call. They had a golf cart and several wheel chairs available to assist in getting passengers to and from the buses and other destinations. The husband and wife entertainment team (Bill and Laura) on board was extremely talented and knowledgeable. Laura is a talented singer and entertainer while Bill's knowledge of the Mississippi River is exceptional. He is a River Historian, storyteller, singer, piano player, magician, and Riverboat Gambler all rolled into one. When not sightseeing or eating, there were many comfortable lounge areas to relax and read, play cards or just watch the river flow by.

Cabin Review

Cabin
The cabin was very spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed our private balcony. The bathroom was the largest we've seen on a cruise ship.
