Lower Mississipi

Itinerary

Welcome to Memphis! Home to Blues, BBQ, Beale Street, and of course, the King of Rock 'n Roll - Elvis Presley. This amazing city is the perfect place to begin your Mississippi River Voyage. Come a day or two early and immerse yourself in sights, sounds, and tastes of this exciting destination.

Bask in the warmth of the Mississippi River sun as you cruise from Memphis to Vicksburg. Relax in one of the many spacious lounges or enjoy a gentle breeze on the sun deck.

The city of Vicksburg served as a pivotal turning point during the American Civil War. Come with us as a informative historian leads us through the National Military Park, commemorating the campaign, siege, and defense of Vicksburg. An expert guide and park ranger will take you to battlefields, the U.S.S. Cairo gunboat, and the most significant historic places.

Settled in 1716, Natchez is rich in history and southern hospitality. Enjoy a guided exploration of this fascinating city which has retained its antebellum charm since its surrender during the Civil War. Visit Frogmore, a historic cotton plantation still in use today, or attend a special piano concert in the J. N. Stone antebellum music room.

This southern town charms with simple pleasures and unique treasures. Located on the bluffs of the Mississippi River, St. Francisville has been called, “One of the 200 most beautiful small towns in America.” Take a stroll through its historic centre where two centuries of architecture and lifestyle are on display. Enjoy visits to restored antebellum mansions including Rosedown.

Baton Rouge features all the history and wonder you would expect in a state capital, but with an added down-home flavour that makes it truly unique. A local expert guide will take you on a tour of the cities' most famous attractions including the Old and New State Capitols and the interactive Louisiana State Museum.

Once serving as an antebellum sugar cane homestead, Oak Alley Plantation is named after its most distinguishing feature, a row of 300-year-old oak trees. This leafy canopy forms a path leading to the Mississippi River. Restored to its 19th-century grandeur, this classic Greek Revival antebellum mansion is simply breathtaking.

End your journey in the vibrant city of New Orleans, also known as the Big Easy, where art and culture abound. The open-air artist colony proudly displays local works on the iron fence in Jackson Square, while the city’s 45 museums carefully preserve its rich history. Stay an extra day or even a few nights to enjoy the famed French Quarter.
