American Duchess River Cruise | Mark Twain's Mississippi
Roundtrip St. Paul - 9 Days

Celebrate the remaining days of summer with a timeless journey through the scenic beauty of the Upper Mississippi River region, and tap into the sense of wonder that caused early pioneers to call the heartland home. The history, scenery, and cultural highlights unfold through a series of onboard enrichment activities and special guest lectures as you as you venture from one intriguing river town to another. Perhaps no person defined the world’s view of America’s greatest river more than Mark Twain, and on this magnificent journey, you will witness his legendary words and wit brought to life onboard by an expert tribute artist. And let us not forget the regional cuisine, tantalizing the taste buds at every turn. From crispy honey-buttermilk-fried walleye pike to a decadent dose of homemade blackberry cobbler, it’s all on the menu.
