No exploration of the lower 48 is complete without a trip across the South aboard a USA River Cruise. And a trip across the south wouldn’t be complete without experiencing the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers.

From Memphis to Nashville and points in between, the Volunteer State is a historical and cultural treasure, one best experienced from the water. Of course, a trip to this region means paying homage to the amazing legacy of music that has evolved over time. Just as the rivers flow, so does the music — from Beale Street to Music City!

Visiting Memphis and Nashville with USA River Cruises means a trip filled rhythm, tunes, and dancing! Whether it’s blues or bluegrass, jazz or Joplin, you’ll have a front-row seat to the music of America.

The Cumberland and Tennessee rivers wind a historical path through lands awash in music, world-class cuisine, and a love of all things Southern. The Queen of the Mississippi paddlewheel will entice you to relax while you stare up in awe at rocky outcroppings and national forests as they drift along.

Onboard, you’ll experience the industry’s best customer service from a helpful and hospitable staff who are excited to have you aboard. Plus, the American Cruise Line fleet features the newest and most environmentally friendly small ships in the country.

From your large stateroom, you’ll have a first-class and private space from which to take in the sights. The itinerary also includes daily entertainment brought onboard — musicians, historians, naturalists — just for you!

And the food … oh, the food! Everything from andouille gumbo, po’boys with red beans and rice, and bourbon pecan pie.

Our nine-day Memphis-to-Nashville trip also includes sights and sounds and tastes galore onboard the American Duchess. Be sure to take lots of photos, especially from the observation deck, which offers prime viewing for your river cruising!
