Mississippi River Cruises



"The Mississippi Delta, shining like a national guitar." So sang Paul Simon, demonstrating that river cruising on the Mississippi is a journey through the American landscape, American history, and perhaps most of all, American music.

The Mighty Mississippi is a wholly American river – both geographically and spiritually speaking. As you travel its length the stories of the American Civil War, slavery and civil rights, rock'n'roll and jazz unfold before you. Few river cruising experiences capture a place, its history and its people quite so completely as river cruising the Mississippi.

So relax, unwind, and begin a journey that could take you all the way from Minnesota to New Orleans, via Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, and, of course, Mississippi.
