American Cruise Lines introduced its Complete Mississippi Cruise that begins in New Orleans and ends in St. Paul, MN, stopping in 16 of the American Heartland’s most unique towns and cities along the way.
The 22-day cruise is being offered on the line’s newest riverboat, the 150-passenger American Eagle, which is currently being completed and is slated to enter service in the spring.
As they journey the entire length of the Mississippi River, guests enjoy views of a diverse landscape, while enjoying American Eagle’s distinct amenities, including the most spacious staterooms on the River and private balconies with sliding glass doors. They’ll also experience American Cruise Lines’ unique open-seating dining plan, which allows guests to enjoy meals in a single seating and at the time of their choice, while surrounded by panoramic views of the river. For the duration of the cruise, an all-American crew caters to passengers’ every need, while daily educational events and themed entertainment help paint a picture of what life on the Mississippi was like in days gone by.
“It’s been evident that our guests enjoy cruising more than one portion of the Mississippi River at a time, often purchasing cruises back-to-back,” said Timothy Beebe, Vice President, American Cruise Lines.
“With this new offering, we provide a unique opportunity to travel the entire leg of the Mississippi River and experience the complete history of the western frontier.”
The Complete Mississippi cruise departs on August 8, 2015 aboard the American Eagle.
