My husband and I and our 18 year old son went on this cruise! It was amazing! The views were great and the price was right. There was even light snacks served. We had a blast. The crew was amazing and very helpful!

During our conference the group went on a cruise down the Mississippi River. It was gorgeous. We went under several bridges, enjoyed cocktails and appetizers and had lovely weather. I would definitely recommend this trip.
