Southern Grandeur: Magical Mardi Gras

FEB. 15-24, 2020
New Orleans, Oak Alley, St. Francisville, Natchez, Vicksburg, Nottoway
Aboard American Queen

Begin your journey by touring New Orleans in style on an exclusive, included pre-cruise program led by a knowledgeable guide. Experience the knotted oaks and Spanish moss of City Park or delight in some traditional southern cuisine in the city’s legendary French Quarter. Board the American Queen and sail to Oak Alley, known for its eponymous plantation, or visit the Slavery Exhibit and the Blacksmith shop. Next, travel to St. Francisville, a quaint but influential town celebrated for its more than 140 buildings and plantation homes on the National Register of Historic Places. In Natchez, a quintessential southern town full of antebellum architecture, see one of the oldest post-European settlements in the Lower Mississippi River Valley. Then, discover Vicksburg—“Red-Carpet City of the South”—which radiates southern hospitality and was the site of a dramatic siege in the Civil War. Before returning to New Orleans, cruise the famed Mississippi to Nottoway and tour the famous Nottoway Plantation House, the largest antebellum plantation house in the South.
