America Cruise Review by Pegmarw

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2016
  • Destination: North America River

We always wanted to go to New Orleans and to cruise the Mississippi. So, the cruise on the paddle wheel America from New Orleans to Memphis was a dream come true that surpassed all expectations!!

The young staff was absolutely delightful. It was most encouraging seeing young people begin their careers. This staff was ALWAYS pleasant and ready to meet any request. Yes, they did make a few minor mistakes, but were always apologetic (and as a retired teacher I firmly believe that you learn best from your mistakes.)

Cruising on a small ship with Bill our educator (can't remember his title) made history come alive. The entertainment was remarkable!! The Victory Belles from the WWII Museum brought back the "old" songs. Weldon and Bill Jazz duo were amazing. I usually am not a big fan of comedians, but the singing comedian Judy was well loved by all the audience.

Vicksburg stands out as a destination. We had never heard much about this Civil War site, but it beats Gettysburg by a mile. Natchez was another standout as was Memphis. The Plantation tours gave us good insights into King Cotton.

Relaxing, Seeing, Eating, Learning and being Entertained what more could you ask for. It was so good we booked a cruise on the Columbia and Snake Rivers for the fall of 2017.

Hint: We had perfect weather in early November

Cabin Review

Cabin ALL 323

The cabin was new and had plenty of storage space for clothing etc. Although small the bathroom had plenty of space and the toilet worked remarkably well.

The balcony was delightful, and you could have breakfast delivered to your room to enjoy on their.
