We chose this cruise because we didn't want an ocean trip. Yes, it was spendy but a lot comes with the package. Round trip airfare :) night at the Grand Ole Opry. Admission prepaid by the ship to shore excursion. The bus drivers were very professional and friendly. The room service was well appreciated. The food was good with a variety of varied selection. And formal dining or casual back ...

My husband and I cruised on American Cruise Line Jazz from Memphis to Nashville in July. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing trip along the Ohio River, Mississippi and Cumberland Rivers. The staff and crew of the Jazz go above and beyond to make your trip seamless and easy. There was a pre-cruise complimentary stay at the upscale Guest House at Graceland. The excursions staff arrived at the ...

Our earlier cruising experiences consisted of thirteen ocean cruises. We chose this cruise because flights were being cancelled, covid restrictions are iffy and we could drive to Memphis. We anticipated visiting antebellum plantations and having an opportunity to see civil war locations. The pre-cruise stay at the Guest House at Graceland was a very nice plus to our cruise. Our luggage was ...

I was on the American Jazz from Nashville to Memphis from July 9-July 17. This cruise has been disappointing from day one. My wife and I took the precruise package and stayed at the Marriott with tickets for the Grand Ole Oprey. We were supposed to meet in the lobby at 5:00 for hor d’erves and cocktails. There was none. When we arrived at the lobby we were rushed onto the bus only to sit and wait ...

I have always wanted to do a river cruise and the Music City Cruise from Memphis to Nashville was very appealing. The office staff was very cordial and made a person feel welcome from the very beginning in planning the cruise. I really enjoyed the cruise because of the accommodations as it was very accommodating for two people, the personable staff who were always willing to assist a person in ...

1st Time ACL Tried Memphis Music, oh dear

We'd been on ACL once before & knew it was mucho dinero, but wanted to do Memphis-Nashville Music Cruise. This is the 1st yr ACL has attempted this route, & omigosh, the timing needs improvement! The brochure isn't nearly clear enough that you hafta get there EARLY to see the music sites in either town. They offer Graceland pre-cruise ($$$), but no Sun Studio or Memphis Rock & Soul tours, etc. ...

Boring and careless

This was a very dull and boring cruise. The ship was fairly new so staterooms were nice and food was excellent but the staff failed to responsibly handle my bag and I never received it during my cruise. It disappeared on a two block bus shuttle to the dock so I believe someone handling it stole it. I wasn’t able to keep my bag with me for the ride to the dock so it was my carryon containing ...

For our first post-COVID adventure, we decided to see more of the USA, and a riverboat cruise down the mighty Mississippi has always sounded alluring. We sailed downstream, from Memphis to New Orleans, on the beautiful and stately American Queen. We spend three nights pre-cruise in Memphis, one of which was included in the cruise fare. The cruise line hotel was The Peabody, "The South's Grand ...

Pre-cruise: We arrived in Memphis a day before the boat was to depart and stayed at the Riverboat Company hotel, the downtown Sheraton. In spite of having read a few negative reviews, we were well pleased with the hospitality shown us by the staff from our first greeting by the bellmen, front desk staff, early check in provided, service in the restaurant for dinner (on our own), and the comfort ...

Review for American Duchess to North America River

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

In December of 2019, I had been fortunate to have an absolutely amazing trip aboard the American Duchess. We had sailed from Memphis to New Orleans, and although there were only 100 people or so on board, everything felt lively and populated, but not overly populated like on an ocean-going cruise ship. The boat had Christmas theming since it was the holidays, and everything felt warm and ...
