River CRUISING with a difference in the United States.

I am sure you have all seen the European River Cruise advertisements, but did you know there are also USA STEAMBOAT River cruises. These “old world” style steamboats cruise up and down the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennesse and Cumberland Rivers. The Mississippi Steamboat carries 400 passengers and the American Empress 200 passengers, so you can see they are a small exclusive way to cruise the USA Rivers.
