Sail Date: Apr 2021

My wife and I were celebrating our 53rd wedding anniversary on April 20th, 2021 and after not being able to do ANYTHING the previous year, I wanted to do something special. Neither of us had ever been to either Memphis or New Orleans so when I found this cruise it was just what we were looking for. Not only that, but the ship is a STEAMBOAT!

We also signed up for the 2 day Elvis and GRACELAND tour which was well worth the expense and we both highly recommend it. After spending 2 days at GRACELAND we were excited to board the ship Saturday morning.

Our cabin was just as described in the brochure. Plenty of room, a very nice balcony (I have to admit we didn't spend much time on it, there was too much to do elsewhere, on and off the ship.

Cabin Review

I wanted a cabin with a balcony, but in hindsight, we really didn't use it. Except for sleeping, we didn't spend that much time in our cabin.

Port Reviews


Because we wanted to visit GRACELAND!
