We wanted to try a river cruise within the US and upon discovering the Civil War themed cruise on the Mississippi, hoped this would be informative and fun. It was even better than we had hoped. Only about 140 people on board so we truly met almost everyone. Our cabin was larger than expected and quite comfortable. Great food, excellent cruise staff and very good historians and people with river knowledge on board. We actually learned a lot about the river and history of the War Between the States. We especially enjoyed the cocktail hour conversations with the historian and the well planned shore excursions. Nearly all of the excursions we went on were included in our cruise price. The included pre-cruise accommodations and transportation was also quite good with an unexpected city tour before boarding our ship in Memphis. We've already booked our next adventure with this cruse line!
Cabins are larger than on big cruise ships. Although we didn't spend too much time in the cabin, the full size bathroom and space with a king size bed, desk and two chairs was more that expected.
