Your Cruise

Day 1: New Orleans,

Welcome to New Orleans, also known as the Big Easy. This vibrant city is the perfect destination to begin your Mississippi River voyage. Arrive the day before your cruise and American Cruise Lines will handle the rest. With thoughtfully planned excursions encompassing the biggest attractions and cultural highlights of New Orleans, as well as complimentary transportation to the ship, we make sure your tour is as worry-free as possible.

Day 2: Oak Alley

Once serving as an antebellum sugar cane homestead, Oak Alley Plantation is named after its most distinguishing feature, a row of 300 year old oak trees. This leafy canopy forms a path leading to the Mississippi River. Restored to its 19th century grandeur, this classic Greek Revival-style antebellum mansion is breathtaking.

Day 3: Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge features all the history and wonder you would expect in a state capital, but with an added down home flavour that makes it truly unique. Our local expert guides will take you on a tour of the cities' most famous attractions including the Old & New State Capitals and the interactive Louisiana State Museum.

Day 4: St. Francisville

This southern town charms with simple pleasures and unique treasures. Located on the bluffs of the Mississippi River, St. Francisville has been called, “One of the 200 most beautiful small towns in America.” Take a stroll through its historic centre with two centuries of architecture and lifestyles on display. Enjoy visits to restored antebellum mansions including Rosedown.
