There are many additional specialty dining options available to you at no additional charge. Aside from complimentary bottled water, enjoy complimentary soft drinks throughout your voyage, as well as wine and beer with dinner. Each stateroom is equipped with gourmet coffee brewers and Starbucks coffee.

You’ll feel like royalty with the friendly, gracious treatment of a professionally trained, all-American/English speaking staff. Enjoy the casual atmosphere as elegant-casual attire is what’s recommended throughout your cruise, and no formal wear is required.

Enhance your understanding and knowledge of the history of cruising the Mighty Mississippi with daily lectures by the Riverlorian, our onboard river historian.
