A friend of a friend recommended this itinerary. They talk about how new and wonderful it was. The food was good and all of the drinks were included in the price. Indeed, you can guess from my rating. The food was amazing and the drinks were all included. Our stateroom was roomy and had a really nice bathroom. It was a big plus. We stayed in Deck 4 port side. This floor was across the way from the entertainment and the lounge where we had access to snacks and soft drinks/ juices 24/7. Overall the entertainment was enjoyable. Our favorite was Jeff the resident entertainer and the blues guys: Sole Shakers. Overall, the staff was great. It would be hard to single out any exemplary crew. Our servers and housekeepers were outstanding. I really enjoyed the day in Vicksburg. The walking tour was lovely yet tiring. The guides for the excursions were fantastic, specially our guide for the walking tour of Vicksburg. In the afternoon, the Military Park was big and mind blowing. As a classroom teacher for 4th grade, this trip really brought everything to life. I highly recommend this trip and this ship, the Jazz. We loved every second of it.
