Mississippi River Cultural Experience 

Central Mississippi includes the southern part of the Mississippi River and the area surrounding Mississippi’s capital city of Jackson—the state’s government, business and cultural centre.

Every four years, Jackson serves as the only United States city to host the International Ballet Competition. You can also visit the incredible Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, Mississippi History Museum, Mississippi Arts Museum, Old Capital Museum and the Mississippi Governor’s Mansion – all within walking distance to one another.

Vicksburg offers one of the country’s most interesting and important Civil War sites. Tour Vicksburg’s National Military Park for a unique experience and insight into America’s past.

A little further south on the Mississippi River, you’ll find Natchez, Lorman and Port Gibson which are highlighted by the astonishing number of antebellum mansions. Antiques and family heirlooms fill each room, and many are surrounded by lush gardens and finely manicured grounds.

The largest steamboat ever built, the grand American Queen is a gracious and elegant triumph of American ingenuity. Our flagship paddlewheeler is a gentle soul packaged within the ornate detailing that embellishes her exterior. Any traveller who chooses to cruise on this iconic riverboat will soon find that her steady heart beats to the rhythm of music and discourse that resound within her walls.

Embark on a river cruise on the American Queen, the wondrous steamboat that introduces her riders to the waters that she calls home – the great rivers that have sustained towns, wildlife and memories throughout history.

The moment you step aboard, you know this is something special. You’re surrounded by world-class art, beautiful furnishings and perfectly selected amenities. You’re welcomed by crew and staff whose sole desire is your comfort, enjoyment and safety.
And beyond that, you’ll connect with new sights, dialects, cultures and traditions. You’ll meet like-minded travellers who share stories and invite you to do the same. The familiarity of the space grows by the day – with every “good morning,” with each new friendship formed. Memories made on board are the finest souvenirs you’ll take home.
Regionally inspired food is a way of life on the river. Wild salmon, so fresh it might have been swimming this morning, grilled to perfection. Moonshine bread pudding that evokes echoes of the Tennessee hills. A succulent dumpling that reminds you why Washington apples are the world’s favourite temptation.
Step on board and enjoy entertainment as congenial as a friendly pub and as lively as a cabaret. Since the days of the legendary showboats, America’s riverboats have been centres of music, folklore and theatrical delight. From the American Queen’s spectacular Grand Saloon to intimate venues throughout every boat, you’ll find so much to see, hear and do that your only problem will be fitting it all in. Entertainment for your mind is abundant, as well, with fascinating storytelling, enlightening lecturers and engaging Riverlorians.
