Have you ever been charmed by the Mississippi River? Are you a civil war buff? Do you treasure the writings of Mark Twain, or maybe you are a huge fan of Louis Armstrong’s jazz? If you are entranced by the unparalleled culture, history, music, and culinary experiences of the Mississippi River, a cruise down the mighty river in 2017 might be just the antidote you’ve been looking for!

All of our 2017 Mississippi River cruises are featuring the American Duchess. The Duchess is the first all-suite paddlewheel boat in the US! The suites range from 180 sq ft to 550 sq ft. The boat was created from a 1995 hull, and reconstructed into a luxurious river cruiser.

This luxurious “all-suite” river boat features two dining options; a Grand Dining Room as the main dining facility featuring breakfasts, lunches, and dinners in grand surroundings. The Grill, another option, offers American favorites, and even opens early for those who need to start the day early. The American Duchess also features complimentary 24-hour room service for any hour of the day when you need a bite to eat. This is a rare, and ultra-exclusive luxury that not many river cruise boats can boast about. You can have that Southern Comfort Food at 4 AM while cruising the Mississippi River! Yes you can!

When you book the Owner’s Suite or the new Loft Suites, you’re eligible for Commodore Services. Commodore Services entitles you to a fruit basket and bottle of wine upon your arrival and a reserved balcony seating in the Auditorium, the extraordinarily personalized services of a River Butler, and much more.

Flutes of champagne during a fun evening

The onboard Riverlorian will be offering presentations about life on the river, as well as introduce local experts on the history of the region you’re going through. You will be entertained every night by live entertainers aboard the American Duchess that will have you rushing to go get seats in the Show Lounge. Sip a glass of champagne and watch the bubbles rise simultaneously with the curtains as the show begins, and the evening entertainment begins.

Sit back and bask in entertainment worthy of Broadway reviews, rest assured that all of your amenities are taken care of. You can expect to wake up to another day of excitement and treasure as your itinerary will most certainly be filled with exciting stops and activities on every shore excursion.
