Going down the Mississippi on a paddle boat has always been on my bucket list. We were put up at the Sheridan in Memphis. Good choice. Easy five minute trolley from and to Beale St.Went to Sun Studios and Beale Street. Excellent breakfast included. Loved the food and music on Beale St. From embarkation to disembarkation on the American Queen, everything went smoothly. The great majority of our shipmates were in their seventies as were we. Everyone very friendly and easy to get to know. Our outside cabin was of good size. Large bathroom with a super shower. Food was excellent. Entertainment was better than outstanding. The shore excursions each day were very informative with very knowledgeable guides. Staff was friendly, helpful and seem to take pride in their work. I would rate the American Queen 10 out of 10 stars and would and have recommend everything about the experience.

Above expectations
