Each week we’ll be running our Cruise of the Week feature, based around our most recent Cruise Adviser guide. For the next few months, we’ll be focusing on luxury cruises, each based on a different destination and season. This week it’s North America in the autumn.
There is something very special about the Mississippi river. There’s also a reason why people tend not to do the lower part of the river in the absolute peak of summer — it’s too damn hot. This sailing, on board the beautiful American Queen, will be just as conditions are starting to cool. Enjoy some incredible southern hospitality, as you journey through the fascinating and historic Deep South.
