DETAILS

Discover the charm of the South—from Memphis to New Orleans—aboard the American Queen. Begin your journey in Memphis with an included overnight hotel stay. There, you might choose to stroll Beale Street, known for its significance in the world of blues, or perhaps walk through the National Civil Rights Museum.  Make your first stop in the Mississippi Delta, a region whose small river towns charm all who visit. Cruise the river to Vicksburg—the “Red-Carpet City of the South”—which radiates southern hospitality and was the site of a dramatic siege in the Civil War. In Natchez, a quintessential southern town full of antebellum architecture, see one of the oldest post-European settlements in the Lower Mississippi River Valley. Travel to Baton Rouge, Louisiana’s capital, and see a retired WWII destroyer, then stop in St. Francisville, a quaint but influential town celebrated for its more than 140 buildings and plantation homes on the National Register of Historic Places. Before disembarking in New Orleans, sail to visit the Nottoway Plantation Home, the largest antebellum mansion in the South.
