In March 2022 My husband and I took a wonderful Cruise on American CruiseLine. The trip was on the American Heritage, and we traveled down the Mississippi River from Memphis to New Orleans.
We began our trip exploring on our own. I wish I had taken the precruise option. Many people I met did and had an awesome experience. We visited a few places on our own. We went to Sun Studios, and Beale Street to hear some great Blues and sample the barbeque. All were wonderful but we missed the great experience of Graceland. People who took the pre-cruise package stayed at the Graceland hotel!
We boarded the ship and were pleasantly surprised at the ease in boarding. We were checked in and enjoying food almost immediately. I have done several American CruiseLine trips (Hudson River, Pugent Sound, and St Lewis to Nashville) before, so I was aware of the floorplan and felt comfortable immediately. The rooms are very spacious, and we had a balcony. It was spotlessly clean. This was my first cruise since Covid began so I was very concerned with covid protocols. We were all vaccinated but most of us wore masks anyway. All of the staff did for sure.
Beautiful decor. It was comfortable and more spacious than most cruises I have been on. The bed was terrific. Our cabin was quiet and we both sleep well. The ship is small, which I love, so it is easy to get to all areas of the ship. all locations are equally good.
