On every itinerary, expert onboard hosts and local guides make it possible to fully immerse yourself in your new surroundings. Uncover the most mouthwatering barbecue spots in Memphis, learn why Vicksburg played such a pivotal role in the Civil War and soak up all the energy of New Orleans on a Mississippi River cruise. Experience one awe-inspiring landmark after another on the Columbia River and Snake River as you spy dramatic bluffs and gorges, Mount St. Helens and Multnomah Falls, all accompanied by narratives from engaging guides. You can pair this journey through the Pacific Northwest with another American classic: visiting the great expanses of Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks. Voyages along New England’s rugged coastline, the quaint harbors of Maine and New York’s iconic Hudson River reveal up-close perspectives of magnificent eastern shores.
