I haven´t done that cruise yet but New Orleans roundtrip and New Oreans - St. Louis both on the Mississippi Queen. You can find reviews for both cruises linked in my signature.
You can also find some interesting facts and things to see in our "Steamboat Traveller" which is available online
or order the printed version.
It´s not my favorite itinerary. But of course New Orleans, Vicksburg, Natchez and Memphis are great places to see. The landscape is not very spectecular on this itinerary. Between New Orleans and Baton Rouge there´s a lot of industry along the river. And all the way up is flat land. For a first timer my suggestion would be the Upper Mississippi River from St. Louis to St. Paul (not reverse).
You haven´t mentioned the boat you´re looking on.
If you have any specific questions feel free to ask.
