New Orleans Mississippi River Cruise

Short trips on the Mississippi River are great when you don’t have a long vacation, or as a building block into a longer vacation! These 6-day Mississippi River cruises are just like dipping your toes into the vast sea of southern charm and history that the region is known for. These departures include a pre-cruise hotel in New Orleans – an extra night to explore Bourbon Street or the French Quarter!

American Cuisine

Dining is an uniquely American experience aboard the ship. Local ingredients used to create regional delicasies will charm your tastebuds. In addition to the main dining room, there are also an alternative venue for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as 24-hour room service for your convenience.

Pre-Cruise Hotel

The first night of the vacation always includes a hotel night. This ensures that you are in the right city to board your boat on time. You’ll be rested and ready to go! Your breakfast and transfers to the boat are also included.

Hop-On/Hop-Off Bus

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.
