Upper Mississippi River Cruises

Few American authors are as beloved as Samuel Clemens, better known by his pen name, Mark Twain. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn are established classics in literature and considered "must-reads" for anyone interested in American history. The characters and locations in these novels are based on Twain's early childhood upbringing in Hannibal, MO on the banks of the Mississippi River. On this special theme cruise, travel along the Mississippi River and enjoy a featured stop in Hannibal to take part in an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the town, including a look at Huck Finn's house and the Becky Thatcher home.
