We chose this cruise because it was an opportunity to cruise the entire Mississippi River. That did not happen. The river levels were high all summer long, and we understand that itinerary changes caused by weather are routine.
However, ACL started notifying us of a change of the embarkation port from St Paul MN, to Memphis TN only 4 days from departure.
Instead of attempting to put our thoughts in a narrative, I will instead provide the pros and cons in an abbreviated list.
We had a balcony cabin on deck 4. It was equivalent to a ocean balcony cabin, not as big as a mini-suite. Bathroom was adequate but not large, balcony was the same.
