10 nt American Queen Steamboat New Orleans to Memphis,

Inside stateroom on American Queen and standard hotel rooms

The grand American Queen is the largest steamboat ever built and epitomises the grace and grandeur that made river cruising a cherished American tradition for more than two centuries. There are six decks featuring a lounge, library, small swimming pool, gym, spa, restaurants and bar. Enjoy acclaimed entertainment worthy of Broadway, daily lectures and a country club casual ambience.

Day 1: Fly to New Orleans. On arrival you will be met and transferred to your hotel.

Day 2 New Orleans/American Queen: Enjoy further time for sightseeing before boarding the American Queen for an early evening departure.

Day 3 Nottoway, Louisiana: Nottoway is the South’s largest, most glorious remaining Antebellum mansion with a rich history dating back to 1859. In a fabulous location along the great River Road overlooking the Mississippi River, this ‘white castle’ of the South transports visitors back to an era of glory and grandeur. Enjoy a tour of this fascinating mansion which flaunts 64 bedrooms and then perhaps stroll through the lush grounds and gardens.

Day 4 St Francisville, Louisiana: This historical quaint town located on the bluffs of the Mississippi has over 140buildings on the National Register, beautiful plantation homes nestled in the rolling countryside and bustling Main Street shops. Walk along Royal Street, visit Old Market Hall, Grace Episcopal Church and the West Feliciana Historical Society Museum.

Day 5 Natchez, Mississippi: This charming river town was first inhabited by Natchez Indians and French explorers who shared the land. It was founded in 1716, making it the oldest city on the Mississippi and is known for its elegance, hospitality and impressive preservation of history. Enjoy the unique shops, restaurants, museums and historical houses as you explore the beautiful downtown areas. Sights include Rosalie Mansion, William Johnson House Museum, Magnolia Hall and Stanton Hall.

Day 6 Vicksburg, Mississippi: Discover a unique blend of old and new from National Historic Landmarks to the Waterways Experiment Station and enjoy the sweeping river views. Billed as the “Red Carpet City of the South,” Southern hospitality is at its best. Today there is a hop-on-hop-off tour included with sights including the shopping district, Old Court House Museum and the Lower Mississippi River Museum.

Day 7 Port of the Mississippi Delta: The Mississippi Delta is more than a geographical region, it is a way of life and a true experience based around agriculture, music and history. These small river towns have been the inspiration for authors, musicians and artists for centuries.

Day 8 Scenic river cruising: Relax on deck during a leisurely day on board. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy the many activities that are available on board, or perhaps book an indulgent, stress-relieving massage in the spa?

Day 9 Memphis, Tennessee: Disembark this morning and set off through the streets of Memphis to Beale Street for a walking tour with a local musician. Continue to Elvis Presley’s former home, Graceland where you have time to explore the many exhibits.

Day 10 Memphis, Tennessee: Today you have an escorted walking tour which includes the historic Peabody Hotel and the famous Peabody Duck Parade. An included attraction pass gives admission to Sun Studio, the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum and the National Civil Rights Museum.
