Mississippi Experience!

An unforgettable experience, which we have wanted to do for a long time. A river cruise on the Mississippi aboard the beautiful American Duchess. The services on board are not many, but proportionate to the size of the ship. Fabulous itinerary, to discover many beautiful places and with a very high level service on board. A highly recommended ship and cruise company.
