Your Itinerary

    1Deluxe Hotel Stay in New Orleans, LA
    Welcome to New Orleans! Drop your luggage off in your room and go enjoy, 'the Big Easy.'

    2Embark in New Orleans, LA
    Board the American Queen in the afternoon, but you’ll still have an opportunity to enjoy the city or explore your new settings before the boat departs at 5pm.

    3Nottoway, LA
    Explore the largest remaining antebellum deep south mansion in this included tour of Nottoway Plantation. This mansion is three floors, 64-bedrooms, and has 22 white square columns, contributing to its nickname, "The White Castle of Louisiana”.

    4St. Francisville, LA
    The original settlement of Bayou Sara was destroyed by flooding and fires. Many of the structures were hauled up the bluff to St. Francisville, where they still stand. The southern charm is evident as soon as you walk past the Spanish moss-covered trees between touring their historic homes, beautiful churches and taking pictures with your friends in their breathtaking parks.

    5Natchez, MS
    Natchez Indians and the first French explorers shared this beautiful piece of the river for many years. Officially founded in 1716, Natchez is the oldest city on the Mississippi River. Wherever you go, you’ll experience another piece of history, including unique shops, restaurants, museums and the historic homes of Natchez.

    7Vicksburg, MS
    Civil War history is alive in Vicksburg, Lincoln’s ‘Key to the South.’ This vital river port city has since become a rich historical visit for tourists who want to learn about the battles of Vicksburg, as well as visit their museums.

You’ll spot the buses right away – they look just like the ship! Two buses travel alongside the boat from port to port. At every port, you’ll be able to board these buses for the Hop-On Hop-Off shore excursions. The bus will have a set route in the town, and you can ride until you see someplace you want to go. Then catch the bus the next time it comes thru.
