This cruise was OK, but not as good as other cruises I have been on. Rooms were small and needed clocks. Would have preferred open dinner seating rather than assigned seats. Riverlorian was interesting, but day time activities for those not on special excursions were substandard. Being on the Mississippi River was interesting, but I would have preferred traveling during the daytime so that I could SEE the shore sites along the river. Most of our travel was at night. Hop off and on bus tours were excellent and it was such a convenience to have such prompt busses. The narrations in the mornings were terrific. We did miss the Christmas market at Rosalie Manor since we didn't know it folded up at one. The Christmas market at Nottaway was really nice, however. Our dissappointment was on the second day at Nottaway when there really was NOTHING to do on the second as we took the house tour on the first day.

Cabin Review

Cabin 314
OK-small and needed a clock as already mentioned. Nice location with French doors to walkway, but NOT worth upgrade prices.
