Theme Cruises

Nashville Holiday: It’s the most musical time of the year! Make plans to enjoy the holiday season in Tennessee this year. The rhythm of the river and the festivities onboard will have you singing your way thru the day.

 

American Music: The paddlewheel has its own rhythm, but so does the music of the rivers as we float through the myriad melodies of blues, gospel, folk, rockabilly, ragtime, Dixieland jazz and zydeco. Sway to the music of Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton and try your hand at that quintessential river instrument, the calliope. You’ll quickly discover that the river has a rhythm all its own.

2017 DAILY ITINERARY

Day 1: Embark in Nashville, TN

Day 2: River Cruising

Day 3: Dover, TN

Today is about history, specifically Civil War history. Walk thru the battlefield of Fort Donelson and learn more about the battle at the Visitor Center. At the Surrender House (Dover Hotel), learn about the unconditional surrender of General Buckner to General Grant – the first major victory of the Union Army during the Civil War. Then explore the Fort Donelson National Cemetery – originally created for Union soldiers, but also containing graves for veterans of the Spanish-American War, both World Wars, Korea and Vietnam. 512 of the original 670 Union solders buried here were unknown soldiers.

Day 4: Paducah, KY

Paducah sits at the crossroads of the Mississippi, Ohio, Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers. Popular stops in Paducah include the National Quilt Museum, Lloyd Tilghman House and Civil War Museum, and the Paducah Railroad Museum!

Day 5: Clarksville, TN

Clarksville is a growing river town, but its respect for history and Southern charm remain very much intact. One of the most photographed buildings in the region is the 1898 Customs House Museum and Cultural Center, originally built as a Post Office for the growing tobacco industry. The floor is Knoxville marble, and the walls feature natural white oak trim. There are constant rotation of exhibits, but I’m sure some people could spend the whole day watching the collection of model trains ride about the tracks! Also, the Smith-Trahern Mansion is open for exploration. Built in 1858, it was designed by Adolphus Heiman for Christopher Smith (a wealthy tobacconist).

Day 6: Nashville, TN

To make sure you get to enjoy the holiday scene in Nashville, we’ll get back into town a day early.

Day 7: Disembark in Nashville, TN
