The package includes a pre-cruise stay in New Orleans, where guests can uncover iconic cuisines, visit the famous French Quarter, see its stunning Garden District and of course the many parades and activities comprising the Mardi Gras festival.From there, guests board the 436-passenger American Queen – the largest river steamboat ever built and a fully-working, six-deck recreation of a classic, steam paddlewheeler. While the steamboat has the appearance and opulence of the American Victorian era, it is also equipped with all the modern amenities. Guests will travel north on the Mississippi for seven nights, and the first shore excursion is the Nottoway Plantation, the South’s largest and most glorious remaining mansion. Set among a background of vibrant gardens and 200-year oak trees, the mansion boasts three floors and beautiful ballrooms.The cruise then continues north to St. Francisville – a quaint town situated between rolling countryside and the bluffs of the Mississippi, and Natchez – the oldest city on the Mississippi. A memorable shore excursion will be made at Vicksburg, a major battle site during the Civil War and now a popular tourist spot, with beautiful historic buildings and a rich history. The American Queen will take guests to small river towns that have inspired authors, musicians and artists for centuries before the cruise concludes in Memphis – the town Elvis called home.The American Queen in Louisville American QueencruiseCruise TravellerMississippiNew Orleansspecialslast_img
