Small ship-not much to do!

American Duchess Cruise Review by djayne

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: North America River

We have always wanted to cruise the Mississippi River and go on a small ship so this seemed perfect.

Pro's

Food was very good with a nice variety to choose from each night. Wait staff was excellant.

Shows were the same 3 people each night but they were very good and gave us quite a variety.

Hop on hop off bus and drivers were great. Used those at every port as they were included in price of cruise.

All ports but Greenville were interesting.

Con's

Ship very small and not much to do.

Room was at back of ship near the paddlewheel and was very noisy!

The port of Greenville was a total waste of time-there has to be some place else they could stop. Only thing there was a very small casino. To give you an idea-one of the stops on the hop on hop off bus was the Dollar Store!

I don't really feel this cruise was worth the price we paid, but it was something different than the othere cruises we normally go on.

Cabin Review

Cabin lower end suite 340

Cabin was worn, had trouble with the air conditioning, and was very noisy due to being at the back near the engine. Bathroom was nice and our room steward was very pleasant.
