Cruising on the Mighty Mississippi

Advertorial – Over the past few years, a new travel tradition has become very popular, river cruising. Europe, Asia, the Middle East are the well-known destinations for this new type of travel experience, but here in North America, we have one of the most interesting rivers on which to cruise, the river that is the backbone of America, the Mighty Mississippi.

The Mississippi has had river boats, stern wheelers, since the time of the early settlers. As elsewhere, the river was the principal means of transport and commerce. Today it is again developing a following.

This fall is your chance to enjoy a truly unique journey as you experience three of America’s most interesting cities: Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. Make this North American exploration even more memorable by joining us, Craig Travel, aboard the gracious and authentic stern wheeler, the ss American Queen. Enjoy 7 days of diving into American history and jump back into the era of Old West that can still be felt today on this beautiful paddle wheeler. 

In Nashville we will visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and will be treated to a very special musical themed evening with genuine hospitality. In Memphis, we indulge in a special dinner on Beale Street, the city’s most symbolic and lively street where joy and music abound. We shall also visit Graceland, Sun Studios and the many sites associated with Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement.

On the ss American Queen we’ll feast on sumptuous meals with gracious service as we sail the mighty Mississippi en route to New Orleans. This is one of the ideal seasons for experiencing this historical heartland of America. Each day we’ll be treated to excursions on shore and lively entertainment on board.

New Orleans is a world unto itself, the home of jazz, Mardi Gras and so much more. We shall be provided with a thorough introduction to the city, by coach and by means of a walking tour. And our stay will be highlighted by dinner at one of the city’s most atmospheric restaurants.

This will be a journey that you will long remember. But space is limited, so contact Craig Travel at 1-800-387-8890 for more information and to book.
