St. Louis to Minneapolis | 9-Day Voyages

The paddlewheels on the Mississippi only head North at the end of Summer, as the region warms up and becomes a more comfortable temperature for cruisers. But once the waters are ready, the ships have a great time cruising from St. Louis to Minneapolis and back! The river towns of Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota are very welcoming, full of the Midwest charm and hospitality. Take advantage of these limited itineraries. Northbound and Southbound itineraries may differ.

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.
