I'd never had a chance to see the heartland of the U.S., so this was the perfect getaway. The two weeks on the Upper Mississippi gave me an appreciation of the beauty of this part of the country...and the incredible Mississippi.

Having sailed with American Cruise Lines before, I knew to expect wonderful service from the staff, tasty offerings from the chef, and meaningful excursions including the not-to-be-missed John Deere Pavilion in Davenport, IA; the Field of Dreams near Dubuque; and the Maritime Art Museum in Winona.

Even more than these off-the-ship experiences, though, was the on-board entertainment and speakers. Steve and Joanne are a "terrific twosome" who have talent and knowledge to spare. They were great! Other entertainment at night that was a HUGE hit with the passengers included Blair Carman (Jerry Lee Lewis reincarnated!); The GiGi's; Mermemec Valley Duo; and Flashback.

Cabin Review

Cabin had wonderful storage! Plenty of room for everything. Bath was great and spacious.
