Lower Mississippi River Cruises

Explore the South on a Lower Mississippi River Cruise


Memory flows deep and sentiment eddies and swirls along the Lower Mississippi River on these river cruises. Once divided by these very waters, when cotton was king and the plantation lifestyle was at its zenith, the North and South were at war, each armed with conflicting visions of what was worth dying for. Look back as each battlefield and grave marker has a story to tell. Then celebrate the living, breathing places where southern culture continues to enjoy a modern-day renaissance.
 

Century-old oak trees, indigenous wildlife, Civil War memorials and vast plantations await you on a Lower Mississippi River Cruise. Take in the sights of the river from our decks, and explore from on-shore stops in some of the South’s most famous cities. While indulging in our luxury amenities on board one of our famous paddlewheelers you’ll learn about the area’s history and landscape. And on shore, you can experience the very best of true Southern culture.
