The Lower Mississippi runs right through the heart of the American deep south and is home to the great sounds of New Orleans and Memphis. Follow in the footsteps of Elvis Presley, join the Mardi Gras celebrations, or experience the Mississippi Delta Gospel and some traditional blues as you travel down river.
Along the way you can explore the vast antebellum style plantations, historic battlefields and indulge in authentic Creole cuisine. Try some traditional Gumbo, Cajun chicken and Jambalaya; all finished off with some pecan pie for desert. All of which is likely to take place on-board a classic American steamboat.
And if you haven't had your fill of this world famous river, why not book an Upper Mississippi river cruise for next time.
