JEWELS OF THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI – Explore the land of bawdy blues and Southern belles. This river cruise showcases the diversity and drama of the Lower Mississippi River. From New Orleans to Memphis, the river rolls slowly and expansively, smooth as a southern drawl. The bayous and woodlands along the shore create dramatic landscapes that are virtually unchanged since the days of the French fur traders. Gracious towns with palatial mansions and tree-lined streets abound. History is everywhere – in silent Civil War cemeteries, in the soulful gospel blues of Helena and virtually everywhere you turn in Memphis, best known for jazz, barbeque, and of course The King of Rock and Roll and his home at Graceland. Departs March 14, 2014 9 Days New Orleans to Memphis.
SOUTHERN MEMORIES LAST FOREVER – Memory flows deep and sentiment eddies and swirls along the Lower Mississippi River. The romance of the antebellum era and lively Cajun culture are found everywhere you turn.

When cotton was king and plantation life was at its zenith, our young nation went to war with itself, pitting brother against brother, North against South.

THE ETERNAL CHARM OF SPRING – Inhale the sweet smell of magnolia blossoms and fragrant antebellum gardens while curled up in a rocking chair on the American Queen’s Front Porch of America, working your way through William Faulkner’s Snope Trilogy of novels.
