Mississippi River

After an absence of several years, cruise ships have returned to the lazy waters of the Mississippi. First on the scene will be the Great American Steamboat Company, whose American Queen will offer fall foliage trips on the upper Mississippi and sample Southern culture along the lower Missisippi between New Orleans and Memphis. Our sister site, Cruise Critic, reports that another ship, the Queen of the Mississippi, will also hit the river with similar itineraries, beginning in August.
