Sail Date: May 2019
Cabin:

My wife and I were on your Jazz and Blues Themed Cruise (May 11 - 18, 2019) on the America that went from New Orleans to Memphis. Unfortunately, this lower Mississippi River cruise was anything but the music-themed cruise that had been marketed.

Here is a description of what this cruise was supposed to be from the ACL website:

“Delight in the sounds of Jazz and Blues that fill the air as we cruise the Mississippi River and pay tribute to the musicians and the regions that helped influence American music. On this theme cruise, enjoy special onboard performances, guided shore excursions to influential destinations, and exclusive behind-the-scenes tours. Learn about the importance of New Orleans to the birth of Jazz and how Memphis played an instrumental role in the foundation and popularity of Rock n’ roll.”

Cabin Review

Cabin AAR

Accordian shower doors leave the shower dark and look like the institutional decor of the 1960's. This seems strange because the ship was built in 2016.
