Nashville to Chattanooga | 9-Day Voyages

Venture deeper into Tennessee on this unique cruise. This is steamboat country, because here, the river has always meant life. The river is transportation of people; its the moving of needed supplies in and products to sell out; its getting news from the rest of the world, and mail from far away family and friends. For these very reasons, the river also made people targets during the Civil War. On your cruise, remember those people who came before you, cruising down the Tennessee River on a steamboat. It’s their stories that you’ll hear onboard from the Riverlorians, or in river towns on the tours of historic buildings and battlefields.
