We cruised the section of the Mississippi River between Memphis & New Orleans. It is not the most interesting, scenic-wise, but as the boat mostly remains stationary during the day & only cruises at night when it's dark, that doesn't matter too much.We began in Memphis, & the Light Blue Travel company which runs this tour took us on a...

I booked the 50s/60s Music Themed round trip from St Paul/Minnisota a surprise for my wife. We had the most wonderful and opulent time on board this magnificent vessel. She is beautifully kept and spotlessly clean and dressed in all her 1800s finery. We were extremely well looked after with few exceptions by most of the crew in particular our... More

We stayed at a hotel across the street from here. The walk is paved, has benches and water fountains along the way. You can bike here, also. The River Boats and casinos are very photogenic. There is the USS Kidd and you must do the tour: inexpensive and full of history.

This was an impulse trip that my husband wanted to do. I thought going on this trip might be a little boring. Boy was I wrong. First of all the boat is beautiful. Fully renovated in the true style of the time. Our room had a veranda and it was great having coffee service bought to the room each morning... More

We took the American Queen Steamboat Paddlewheeler from New Orleans to Memphis in March this year. I would have posted this earlier, but I was giving the American Steamboat company time to respond to my critique of this relatively expensive trip that had some flaws. We had a top of the line Suite on the top deck and it cost... More

Just got off the American queen after 7 day trip from New Orleans to Memphis. Had cabin 316 which was absolutely fine and well looked after. Average age on boat was 70+, holds 423 people but only 225 on our cruise. Dissapointing to see they were advertising 30-50% off the rest of the cruises this year while we were on... More

While the cruise itself was very nice, dealing with this company to retrieve over charges is a nightmare, so think twice before putting down a deposit. We booked a future trip while on a New Orleans Round Trip Cruise Dec 2014 - Jan 2015. The cruise itself was outstanding - good food, interesting ports, wonderful, attentive staff. Booking for a...

Just returned from a river cruise aboard the American Queen Steamboat from New Orleans to Memphis. Beautifully restored boat with period furniture in staterooms and public rooms. This is a leisurely cruise, casual dress and good food. The ports are small with emphasis on Civil war museums and sometimes beautiful Southern mansions. Stop in Memphis gives you a chance to...

It is a free and enjoyable experience to ride a ferry across Mississippi river. During May 2011 when I went for the ride, the river was even at its very high tide. It takes almost 30 minutes and it's a worth-while experience.
