We invite you to an authentic paddlewheeler experience with all the comforts of home aboard the intimate 84-room American Cruise Lines riverboat Queen of the Mississippi for this all-inclusive, 8-day/7-night historic cruise embarking from New Orleans, Louisiana 12 March 2022 and disembarking in Memphis, Tennessee on 19 March. Along with well-appointed staterooms, modern amenities, breathtaking scenery, fabulous dining, complimentary drinks and lively entertainment, enjoy dynamic presentations by speakers onboard and daily included excursions connecting you to the region’s rich culture and history.



Spend your complimentary pre-cruise night at the luxurious InterContinental Hotel in vibrant New Orleans, where art and culture abound. Explore the 19th-century antebellum sugar cane homestead Oak Alley Plantation. Take in the local shops and museums of quaint and cozy southern town charms like historic Baton Rouge and Natchez. Explore why the Mississippi River was so important during the Civil War as expert guides take you on a tour of the National Military Park, which preserves the site of the Battle of Vicksburg, waged from 29 March to 4 July 1863. Conclude your Mississippi River voyage in Memphis, home to Blues, BBQ, Beale Street and Elvis Presley, and enjoy tours of Sun Studios, Graceland mansion, the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum and National Civil Rights Museum.
