Go for the Adventure. Not for Luxury.

America Cruise Review by Kat808

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2019
  • Destination: the USA

My husband and I are seasoned cruisers with experience on Seabourn, Regent, Ama Waterways & SilverSea.

A two week journey down the Mississippi River. St. Paul Minn to NOLA, was a completely different type of cruising.

Expect to learn more about American history; exploration, wars and expansion conflicts....the pioneers vs Indian tribes, mining and lumber industries. Music. Heartland Cuisine.

It was an adventure and we enjoyed seeing the beautiful upper Mississppi River florishing Eagle population.

The people we met living in the Mississippi River towns were absolutely charming and gracious. So many colorful characters willing to share their stories of living on the Mississippi River and proud of their towns.

Do not have high expectations because the company labels it as a Luxury cruise. It is Not.

Go for the adventure, and travel down river....start on the Upper Mississippi which is manjestic and stunning. Less industrialized than the lower Mississippi.

Cabin Review

Small room. No refridgerator. No safe. No fresh fruit. No robes. No slippers.

A safe and a small refrigerator, that could hold 4 cans of soda, were brought to my suite upon request.

Room was clean. AC worked fine. TV worked fine. Internet was unrealiable and weak on board.
