Splendor Awaits on Our Magical South and Midwest Cruises

Do you hunger to explore our great United States? The South and Midwest regions are a gold mine of historical, musical, natural and gustatory treasures, all waiting to be uncovered!

If you adore jazz and want to immerse yourself in Southern charm, consider a cruise from St. Louis to New Orleans on our Queen of the Mississippi paddlewheeler. Want to experience the drama and culture of the antebellum South? Our Big Band Swing Cruise aboard the American Queen steamboat will lead you through rolling plantations, legendary battlefields, and the diverse jazz clubs of Bourbon Street, right in the heart of New Orleans.

Book ahead for our Fall Colors trip on the American Queen, which travels the Upper Mississippi, Ohio, and Tennessee Rivers at the height of fall foliage. Want a novel holiday adventure for you and your family? Spend Thanksgiving or New Year’s aboard this luxurious small ship, the perfect mobile memory-maker.

If you’ve heard the siren call of the Midwest, our cruise from Chicago through the Great Lakes to Rhode Island will bring you vistas and destinations large ships can’t reach. Enjoy rugged islands and stunning waterways along this peerless region of our fine country.

Our East Coast Historic South and Golden Isles tours bring you all the mystery and natural allure of our coastal marshlands. Looking for tropical delights found nowhere else? Embark on a tour along the Great Rivers of Florida and experience mineral springs, breathtaking lagoons and lakes, and magical animal sightings, including manatee, alligators, and bald eagles, thriving in their natural habitats.

Our agents are highly-trained and friendly as they come! We’re ready to craft the perfect cruise for you. Contact us with all of your questions – we’re so excited to get you onboard!
