American Cruise Lines adds new Mississippi cruise

American Cruise Lines adds new Mississippi cruise

By Michelle Baran
American Cruise Lines has added a new Mississippi itinerary for 2014 that runs from New Orleans to St. Louis.

The new, eight-day itinerary sails from New Orleans to St. Louis in one week instead of two, which is what American Cruise Lines previously had on offer. It will take place on the company’s 150-passenger paddlewheeler Queen of the Mississippi, which entered service in August 2012.

The new itinerary includes port calls in the Mississippi cities of New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Natchez and Vicksburg, as well as in Memphis, Tenn., and St. Louis.

The cruise starts at $4,195 per person, based on double occupancy.
