No matter what your interests are, you will find it on this cruise. For history lovers, there is Civil War galore. A visit to Vicksburg's National Military Park was fascinating. Nature lovers will love the swamp tour in Louisiana where alligators come close and birds are all around. Historic home buffs will love the plantations. You can even pick cotton at one, Frogmore. Or you can just rest on board.
The ship has rocking chairs on all the decks for rest and river viewing. Your cabin has a balcony for the same and for breakfast al fresco. There is food all day long!! Breakfast about 8, homemade cookies at 10, lunch at 12:30, high tea at 3:30, happy hour with hors d"oeuvres at 5:30 followed by dinner at 7:30. During the evening's entertainment, you can have popcorn and root beer floats. Better learn to pace yourself or you'll have trouble waddling off the boat at the end of the cruise!
The entertainment was local and so were the dinners. Lots of creole and cajun influences in both. The crew is so friendly and ready to please. It is a wonderful experience on the Mississippi!!
I would gladly go on any American Cruise LIne's trip. They have cruising figured out for your best possible experience.
ACL is one of the few small cruise ships to have lots of single cabins. They are roomy and bright.
