New Orleans to Memphis (or reverse) on American Countess
The Lower Mississippi River has stories to share – a legacy that flows from Memphis to the Gulf of Mexico. Embark on more than just a cruise, and return with more than memories: experience, understanding, an enlightened perspective. Let us introduce you to the American South and show you all the great sights and port cities as we cruise the legendary Mississippi river between Memphis to New Orleans. A new chapter awaits as we cruise around each river bend.
The newest gem in our riverboat fleet, American Countess welcomes 245 guests along the Tennessee, Ohio, Cumberland, and Mississippi rivers. Her sleek, contemporary design offers plenty of open space for gathering and sharing the fun, and you’ll love the great forward-facing windows and the portside bar with an 80-foot view.
Savor fresh, regional cuisine in the Grand Dining Room with its custom Italian fabrics and rich walnut accents, the floor to ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the shoreline morning, noon and night. Work out in the contemporary gym with its brand new equipment and a dramatic river backdrop. Relax or watch your flat-screen TV in the inviting surroundings of your stateroom with premium linens and plush bedding. Or make your way to the Card Room, Library or Theater for a friendly game, a new best-seller or live award-winning entertainment.
Be one of the first to experience her elegant décor as she makes her way down the mighty Mississippi from the Big Easy to the Home of the Blues.
At American Queen Voyages we are both proud and honored to share the dream of American river cruising and as such we maintain a commitment to excellence that far exceeds expectations. The welcome appearance of each of our vessels is richly complemented by a culture of gracious service, elegant decor, rousing entertainment and rewarding enrichment experiences. All of this is accentuated with pre-cruise deluxe hotel stays, remarkable shore excursions included in every port of call and a wealth of complimentary onboard amenities.
As river bends unspool, the natural splendor comes alive along the dramatic riverbanks and bluffs of this glacial valley. Much like Mark Twain would have experienced on his many trips along the river, you'll be captivated by the cultures you discover and bounty that awaits.
