Upper Mississippi in the Fall

Review for American Melody to North America River

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 ...

My wife and I chose this cruise because the Upper Mississippi River is so beautiful and the cities along the way, quaint and charming. American Cruise Lines offered just what we wanted. Their ship, American Melody one of their newest, was extraordinary. We started our journey in St Louis and traveled to Hannibal, MO the home of Mark Twain. "Mark" joined our cruise and gave lectures and tours on ...

We’ve always wanted to cruise along the Mississippi River, and we’re glad we did it with American Cruise Line. It was an enjoyable and relaxing cruise experience. We had a terrific guest speaker, Bobby Durham, who not only gave port talks, but also entertained us with his banjo. Piano players Greg on the first 7 days and Jeff on the second 7 days were very talented and kept us tapping our toes ...

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 ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

I have always wanted to cruise on the US rivers, and I also wanted to experience the largest riverboat, as well as steam-powered, so the American Queen was my obvious choice. Eventually, I hope to cover all the US rivers that offer overnight cruises. We flew in to St. Louis, and were lodged at the Hilton at the Ballpark, where we checked in, and completed a Covid test. We toured St. Louis ...

We had sailed previously with Victory Cruise Lines who was bought by American Queen. I will begin by stating that this was a very fun cruise and one of the best that we have taken in a life-time of travel which includes approximately 35 cruises. Saying that, there are many minor issues. I am 73 and Wanda is 72 (which is not an issue), two very fit individuals. Most passengers are in their 70s-80s ...

PRE-CRUISE -- This bucket list cruise was from Red Wing Minnesota to New Orleans, the entire Mississippi River. There was an included pre-cruise Hotel night at the St. Paul Hotel. The hotel was great! However, we were responsible for our own airline tickets and our transfer from the airport to the hotel. We each then had a Covid swab test prior to boarding the next day. The hotel concierge was ...

A Mississippi paddlewheeler cruise has been on my bucket list for years, and this was the perfect time to go. The ship, American Cruise Lines America, is perfect in size, layout, crew, food and entertainers. Our cabin was spacious, light and comfortable, on Deck 2, which I found to be the perfect location, close enough to lounges, but also in a quiet spot. Every meal was delicious, with choices ...

Worst Cruise Ever

The Boat was dirty, bug infested, food was fair, service was terrible, speaker was clueless to anything about our destinations. Time in port was very short, if you got on 2nd bus for a tour, you missed out on most of the tour do to lack of time. Entertainment started out pretty good, by the end of trip it is not so good. People were nice, however, they were always apologizing for lack of ...

We so enjoyed our “Civil War” cruise on the Duchess that we booked this trip “In the Footsteps of Mark Twain”. Two days before departure we were told due to the high waters the trip was changed -every port was different except the starting point of St Louis. The Queen is much larger and the room we had chosen #502 was in the front of the ship-nice & roomy but so noisy we could not stay. The ...
