What could be better than cruising the Mississippi in with the glorious colors of fall in October? This cruise was beautiful and relaxing and was a Mark Twain cruise. An actor portraying Mark Twain gave talks about the river and his time. There was also a tea with him for a more intimate setting.

A husband and wife talked about the river and entertained at night. Local musical talent was also brought aboard along with a speaker portraying Molly Brown. There were varied arts and crafts every day with a resident artist as well as many complimentary shore excursions at each port. Three American Cruise line buses met the passengers at each town to take you on excursions.

This was a busy cruise with a port every day and 21 locks to go through! Many times, there was a welcoming group at each port to give out maps and answer any questions about their town. These cruises show small town America at its finest!

Cabin Review

The cabin was spacious, the beds comfortable, plenty of drawer and closet storage and a beautiful bathroom and shower.
