We sailed the Mississippi River on a perfect size ship stopping at historic sights and visiting mansions and battle fields. On the ship we had the opportunity to paint watercolor with a master artist and take home our paintings. Daily happy hour was accompanied with two singers and a variety of bands in the evenings. The historian on the boat was informative and interesting. The food was always delicious and well presented. Our rooms were cleaned daily and the bathrooms and beds were made for us. The servers in the dining room were pleasant and hard workers. There was open seating and we met a variety of nice, interesting people. The buses followed us to each stop and all the local tour guides offered interesting details about their towns , battle fields mansions and gardens. Jeremy was our cruise director and added humor and fun for everyone. He assisted some ladies on tours and was helpful and flexible to all the passengers.
Our cabins were clean, large with balconies.
The southern mansions were full of history. Hard work keeps these mansions beautiful and well preserved for is to visit. I loved the hooped dresses and friendly personalities of all the guides
