The lower stretch of the Mississippi, from carefree New Orleans to vibrant Memphis, is the river of Legends – the river of centuries-old shaded oak trees, elegant antebellum plantations, cobblestone streets and Victorian mansions. Inhale the sweet fragrance of magnolia blossoms, relax in a rocking chair with a glass of sweet tea and watch the essence of the south unfold around you.

Begin 2018 with a sense of wonder and excitement on a magical lower Mississippi river cruise onboard the lavish, all-new, American Duchess.
