9-Day American Queen River Cruise

Itinerary: Civil War – A Historical Perspective Cruise

The hilltops along this journey have looked over some of American history’s most profound events, setting the scene for Civil War battles, tragedies and triumphs. Explore the charming boulevards as you transport through the centuries on a journey of discovery.

Get a glimpse of beauty and history as the soul of the American South flows – the Cumberland & Tennessee rivers meander between majestic bluffs, yield golden horizons, and more. Witness a serenity in river living, as the lull of the paddlewheel churns past small-town America from gorges and the Great Smokey Mountains with the rhythms of country music and Nashville always exudes.
