Embark on a unique riverboat adventure along the Lower Mississippi River between New Orleans and Memphis with Bon Voyage Boutique Travel and American Cruise Lines. Savor a week aboard the American Heritage, an authentic paddlewheel cruise ship, as we cruise the lower Mississippi. Dynamic presentations by the onboard speaker will help you connect to the region's rich culture and history. Local guides also share insights to illuminate your shore excursions. In Memphis you can savor the barbeque, discover why the Mississippi River and the port of Vicksburg were so important during the Civil War, sip a mint julep while strolling under the canopy of the 300-year-old trees at Oak Alley Plantation, and so much more.
Back aboard the ship, guests can relax with a daily cocktail hour, hors d'oeuvres, fine dining, and an evening show as regional entertainers share the area's renowned cultural flair.
