The world's most opulent paddlewheeler, the American Queen, is your festive holiday home as you experience the timeless traditions of Cajun and Creole cultures along the mighty Mississippi River. The South's most charming river cities will be decked out in their festive glory.  Enjoy carolling around the Christmas tree, live musical performances, Christmas markets, and of course, mouth-watering southern cuisine. 

Depart the UK on 21st December 2019 for the twelve day Christmas cruise holiday.  Start with two nights pre-cruise in Memphis with the opportunity to visit Graceland, Sun Studios and legendary Beale Street.  Then it's time to embark on the American Queen for seven nights cruising the Mississippi from Memphis to New Orleans.  Along the way you’ll explore genuine southern towns brimming with Christmas cheer and magnificent plantation homes draped in holiday finery. Back on board, there's plenty of festive fun and frivolity on offer.  Your sojourn ends in New Orleans where you'll find the roots of jazz and a Mardi Gras city unlike anywhere else.
