16 Days / 15 Nights

Cruise Overview

Set sail on a spectacular journey along America’s most iconic waterway, where the unfolding narrative of the Mississippi River captures the essence of American history and tells the story of its landscapes. Enjoy a seamless blend of engaging shoreside excursions and unmatched onboard comfort. Each day is a new chapter, enriched by our dynamic guest speakers who share insights into the cultural and environmental backstories of the ports we visit.

Travel through the Heartland where towns like Winona, Dubuque, and Davenport still hold the charm of bygone eras. Step back into the youthful days of Mark Twain with a memorable stop at his boyhood home in Hannibal. Experience the rhythm and blues of Memphis and the jazzy beats of New Orleans, cities celebrated for their monumental contributions to music. Wander through the stately homes of Natchez and tread across the hallowed grounds of Civil War sites in Vicksburg, each story passionately recounted by our expert guides.

Back aboard, the evening sparkles with possibilities. Convene with fellow travelers over crafted cocktails, then dine in our elegant restaurant, all while river scenes gently shift past panoramic windows. Come aboard and weave your own story into the waves of America’s river lore. 

Just as it was back in Mark Twain’s day, every cruise on the Mississippi River is unique due to fluctuating river conditions that can have an impact on our itinerary.
