Just back from American Melody


Recommended Posts

I was just spoiled for the last 21 days on the Mississippi River.  The boat was just perfect, loved our cabin 217 and the staff were fantastic!  If you want to dive into the pool, gamble, stay up all night and watch Las Vegas Shows this is not your cruise.  If you like excellent hospitality, regional music, a great piano player, fun happy hours, enrichment & historic talks on the Mississippi River, good tours of towns and cities, and a boat well managed consider this cruise up or down the Mississippi.  The upper is much prettier. Food and drinks were good.  We really enjoyed sitting on our balcony listening to bull frogs, saying hello to locals and going through the locks.  We made many friends and at least 8 of us booked the Pride next May that goes on the Snake River.  Just wanted to give folks an idea on how much fun this cruise was but again it is not a Caribbean Cruise.

@OC PAT Did you do the entire Mississippi? Was it a full ship?

Yep, the whole Mississippi, about 150 passengers but never a big crowd.  Only lines were to get drinks in the very beginning of Happy Hour.
