Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: North America River

My husband and I took this cruise as a celebration of our 25th anniversary. We cruised from New Orleans to Memphis.

Pros: excellent food and wait staff. large variety of entrees and dietary needs met.

clean staterooms, common areas (except the sticky laminate flooring)

variety of hourly activities

variety of Premium Excursions

Cons: Only one location for dinner, even though alternate venue was advertised

average age of cruisers on our cruise looked to be 75

activities geared more to the older crowd, including musical shows in evening

cost of Premium Excursions

included excursions need to be updated. Several stops had little to see

18.5% per person per day gratutites added at end of voyage(not included in cost)

Hotel in New Orleans (included) was filthy

This was our first cruise and didn’t know what to expect. There was a lot of “hurry up” then wait, especially since there were so many cruisers with mobility issues.We will not return.
