The more than 2,300-mile Mississippi River invites travelers to discover its multifaceted heritage, with a vast range of deeply rooted culture, music and history. A cruise is a fantastic way to discover many of the riverfront cities on a single trip, from the comfort of your modern riverboat or traditional paddle-wheeler.

The following Mississippi River cruise itineraries can help you choose from cruises of various lengths and options for the Lower and Upper Mississippi. Note that all fares are listed as double occupancy (based on two people per cabin), and that they might not reflect taxes, port fees or gratuities. The itinerary availability listed is also subject to change.

American Cruise Lines operates small ships accommodating between 90 and 180 passengers that are built, flagged and crewed in the U.S. – and it's the only company in the world operating a 100% U.S.-flagged fleet of riverboats and cruise ships. ACL's itineraries traverse waterways across 35 states, with 11 itineraries dedicated to the Mississippi River. Cruisers can choose to sail on modern riverboats with a sleek interior design or while away their time aboard classic paddle-wheelers reminiscent of days gone by.

ACL offers variety as well as versatility: This line boasts both the longest and shortest sailings on this list with cruises ranging from eight to 60 days in length, including The Great United States. This inaugural 60-day voyage spans four major rivers and 20 states, making it the longest U.S. river cruise in history.

Complimentary hotel and transportation packages are available from every departure city before your cruise. You can book certain premium packages for added perks, such as two nights spent next door to Graceland in Memphis – with VIP tickets and a city tour included in the price.

Music Cities Cruise

Length: Eight days Price: Starts at $3,610 per person

Spend a week getting lost in the sounds of the Memphis blues, rock 'n' roll and country music legends on the seven-night Music Cities Cruise. A hotel stay the night before your sailing is included, but embarking in Memphis means you also have the chance to splurge on a two-night pre-cruise package near Elvis' former home Graceland .

Ports of call include Paducah, Kentucky; Dover, Tennessee; and Clarksville, Tennessee, with an overnight in Nashville and an included excursion to a show at the Grand Ole Opry. Two scenic sailing days feature picturesque views of America's Heartland along the Mississippi, Ohio and Cumberland rivers as well as Lake Barkley.

2024 dates: In 2024, there are two available itineraries in September and November.

Grand Heartland Cruise: St. Paul to New Orleans

Length: 15 days Price: Starts at $9,455 per person

This 15-day voyage allows you to explore America's rich history in towns along the Upper and Lower Mississippi River. The immersive voyage covers six states and 12 cities including St. Paul, Minnesota ; Dubuque, Iowa; St. Louis, Missouri ; Memphis, Tennessee; Natchez, Mississippi; Baton Rouge, Louisiana ; and more.

Take a step back in time while visiting Mark Twain's boyhood home in Hannibal, exploring stately historic estates in Natchez and Civil War sites in Vicksburg. At the end of a busy day ashore, you'll have plenty to chat about with fellow passengers during the evening cocktail hour.

2024 dates: American Heritage – ACL's traditional paddle-wheeler – and three modern riverboats set off on this journey from August to October in 2024.

Complete Mississippi River Cruise: New Orleans to St. Paul

Length: 22 days Price: Starts at $14,935 per person

If you want to see the entire Mississippi in one shot, check out this multiweek sailing that begins in New Orleans and ends in St. Paul, Minnesota. Along the way, you'll sail 1,393 miles, visit 10 states and experience a staggering 20 ports of call as you tour Louisiana and then head northbound to Minnesota.

In the South, walk the battlefields of the Civil War and sample delicious Southern barbecue before listening to the rhythms of jazz, the blues and rock 'n' roll. Then, explore the small and larger cities along the upper parts of the river. Remember to take time to gaze out at the picturesque scenery and the rolling farmlands of America's Midwest before disembarking in St. Paul.

2024 dates: Three of ACL's modern riverboats sail this itinerary in May, June and August in 2024.

The Great United States

Length: 60 days Price: Starts at $51,000

This two-month long journey – the longest domestic itinerary ever created – will check all the boxes for U.S. history and Civil War buffs, music and nature lovers, culinary enthusiasts, and beer and distilled spirits aficionados alike as the ship traverses America's iconic waterways through 20 states and 50 ports of call.

This epic journey showcases the natural beauty and living history of the U.S. from sea to shining sea. The sailing embarks in Portland, Oregon , on the Pacific Coast before traveling east to the Atlantic shore along four major rivers that highlight some of the country's most stunning coastlines. Upon arrival in New York Harbor, guests will have an unforgettable view of one of the most iconic landmarks in the U.S.: the Statue of Liberty .

Passengers can follow in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark along the Snake and Columbia rivers; cruise along Ol' Man River in search of Mark Twain and Elvis; see the vibrant colors of fall during peak season on the Hudson River; and take in the coastal breezes (and fresh seafood) along New England's rocky coastline.

This curated adventure also includes two flights: Jackson, Wyoming , to New Orleans as well as St. Paul to Portland, Maine , plus a land package through Glacier , Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks. All-inclusive pricing covers the pre-cruise hotel stay, all flights and hotels between cruise segments, an ACL jacket and gear pack, daily excursions, all meals and beverages, gratuities and port charges, entertainment, and Wi-Fi.

2024 dates: The inaugural cruise sets sail on August 16, 2024.

Viking River Cruises

Viking is no stranger to sailing Europe's rivers; the brand is synonymous with river cruising worldwide aboard its dozens of ships. However, Viking River Cruises is a newcomer to U.S. rivers, with its purpose-built ship: the 386-passenger Viking Mississippi. Looking to carve out its own niche in the American river cruising category, Viking claims it has the region's "first truly modern cruise ship" with its distinct Scandinavian design and expansive top sun deck with an infinity plunge pool.

Viking's mostly all-inclusive fares include a complimentary excursion in each port, destination lectures and performances, beer and wine at meals, free Wi-Fi, specialty coffees and teas, and more. The line offers five itineraries ranging in length from eight to 22 days along the Mighty Mississippi. Pre- and post-cruise extensions can be added to all voyages for an additional expense.

New Orleans & Southern Charms: Round-trip from New Orleans

Length: Eight days Price: Starts at $3,999 per person

If you don't know which Viking Mississippi itinerary to choose, start here. A round-trip voyage from New Orleans is convenient for booking flights and offers an excellent opportunity to extend your stay in NOLA. Six guided tours are included across eight days, from the historic estates of Natchez to Vicksburg National Military Park. A stop in St. Francisville gives you the chance to marvel at some of the 140-plus buildings it has on the National Register of Historic Places.

If you extend your stay in New Orleans, plan to sample the local Creole cuisine and take in some of the city's nightly jazz entertainment. In the morning, grab a beignet and a steaming cup of chicory coffee au lait at the original Café du Monde in the French Market.

2024 dates: This itinerary is available on select dates in February, November and December.

Heart of the Delta: New Orleans to Memphis

Length: Nine days Price: Starts at $4,299 per person

Similar to its round-trip New Orleans Southern Charms itinerary, the Heart of the Delta cruise begins in New Orleans and calls on the same five ports, before sailing through the Lower Mississippi and disembarking in Memphis. Enjoy scenic views of the serpentine river route – perhaps with expert commentary or a local cooking demonstration – and then take time to explore the birthplace of the Memphis blues, which is also a center of civil rights history.

2024 dates: In 2024, this cruise is available in February, March, April, May, June and November.

America's Great River: St. Paul to New Orleans

Length: 15 days Price: Starts at $12,999 per person

This Viking voyage sails from St. Paul to New Orleans on a two-week trip that calls on 13 ports with one day of scenic sailing. This itinerary combines the best of Viking's other Mississippi sailings for an all-encompassing Midwestern and Southern experience with 12 guided tours.

Included in the fare is a tour of Graceland; a stroll through small-town Burlington, Iowa, to see Snake Alley, deemed the most crooked street in the world; and a visit to the National Eagle Center of Red Wing, among others. For an additional fee, hop on an airboat ride through the Atchafalaya Swamp in Baton Rouge or tour the Anheuser-Busch Brewery of St. Louis.

2024 dates: Viking has availability for this itinerary in July, September and October.

You may have seen riverboat gambling ships or are at least familiar with riverboat gambling along U.S. waterways. However, while high rolling on the river sounds like an exciting way to spend a night (or two, or more) while on your riverboat cruise, you'll have to jump ship to play the slots, roll the dice, spin the wheel or play a hand of Texas Hold 'em. Gambling on cruise ships sailing on internal waters is prohibited by U.S. law.

Gambling on boats in the U.S. is a complicated matter. While you will find some ships sailing along American waterways that are only set up for gambling, they are not carrying passengers from port to port. Most vessels that feature riverboat gambling are now moored, offering sports betting, table games, entertainment, live music and dancing while tethered to shore.

Why Trust U.S. News Travel

She has sailed on nearly every type of cruise ship built, including the newest megaships, paddle-wheelers on America's waterways, and an 18-stateroom river ship on the Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia. Most recently, she traveled on a small luxury expedition vessel in Antarctica and crossed the notorious Drake Passage twice. She covers the travel and culinary industries, specializing in cruises, for major publications including U.S. News & World Report.

Cool New Orleans Accessibility Statement

Accessibility Statement

  • June 30, 2024

Compliance status

Screen-reader and keyboard navigation.

  • Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
  • Keyboard navigation optimization: The background process also adjusts the website’s HTML, and adds various behaviors using JavaScript code to make the website operable by the keyboard. This includes the ability to navigate the website using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys, operate dropdowns with the arrow keys, close them with Esc, trigger buttons and links using the Enter key, navigate between radio and checkbox elements using the arrow keys, and fill them in with the Spacebar or Enter key.Additionally, keyboard users will find quick-navigation and content-skip menus, available at any time by clicking Alt+1, or as the first elements of the site while navigating with the keyboard. The background process also handles triggered popups by moving the keyboard focus towards them as soon as they appear, and not allow the focus drift outside of it.Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.

Disability profiles supported in our website

  • Epilepsy Safe Mode: this profile enables people with epilepsy to use the website safely by eliminating the risk of seizures that result from flashing or blinking animations and risky color combinations.
  • Visually Impaired Mode: this mode adjusts the website for the convenience of users with visual impairments such as Degrading Eyesight, Tunnel Vision, Cataract, Glaucoma, and others.
  • Cognitive Disability Mode: this mode provides different assistive options to help users with cognitive impairments such as Dyslexia, Autism, CVA, and others, to focus on the essential elements of the website more easily.
  • ADHD Friendly Mode: this mode helps users with ADHD and Neurodevelopmental disorders to read, browse, and focus on the main website elements more easily while significantly reducing distractions.
  • Blindness Mode: this mode configures the website to be compatible with screen-readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack. A screen-reader is software for blind users that is installed on a computer and smartphone, and websites must be compatible with it.
  • Keyboard Navigation Profile (Motor-Impaired): this profile enables motor-impaired persons to operate the website using the keyboard Tab, Shift+Tab, and the Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.

Additional UI, design, and readability adjustments

  • Font adjustments – users, can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust the spacing, alignment, line height, and more.
  • Color adjustments – users can select various color contrast profiles such as light, dark, inverted, and monochrome. Additionally, users can swap color schemes of titles, texts, and backgrounds, with over 7 different coloring options.
  • Animations – epileptic users can stop all running animations with the click of a button. Animations controlled by the interface include videos, GIFs, and CSS flashing transitions.
  • Content highlighting – users can choose to emphasize important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight focused or hovered elements only.
  • Audio muting – users with hearing devices may experience headaches or other issues due to automatic audio playing. This option lets users mute the entire website instantly.
  • Cognitive disorders – we utilize a search engine that is linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to decipher meanings of phrases, initials, slang, and others.
  • Additional functions – we provide users the option to change cursor color and size, use a printing mode, enable a virtual keyboard, and many other functions.

About La Crosse Queen Cruises

Cruise back in time and explore the Upper Mississippi with us! The La Crosse Queen is a modern-day replica of the grand river boats that plied the Mississippi River in the early 1900s. Cruising out of La Crosse, Wisconsin, she is one of the few authentic Mississippi River paddlewheel river boats still in operation in the United States today. In keeping with early traditions, she was built with sternwheels that are her only means of propulsion. 

The La Crosse Queen has a split sternwheel, and each half is run by a twin diesel engine that powers hydraulic motors, which turn the paddles. The split paddlewheel gives the Queen greater maneuverability and dependability. This is in contrast to most Mississippi River paddlewheelers in operation today that have a “free wheeling” paddlewheel at the stern of the boat for visual effect, but have traditional screw-type engines hidden for their real means of propulsion. 

The La Crosse Queen is U.S. Coast Guard inspected for safety and is licensed to carry up to 149 passengers.

The #1 Outdoor Activity in La Crosse on TripAdvisor

mississippi river cruises

We took this boat cruise on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The boat was full, but there was plenty of room. Drinks are very reasonable and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. One big plus was the bathrooms were clean and spacious, something I didn't think I would find on a paddle boat! I would recommend the La Crosse Queen.

la crosse queen cruises

We took this cruise with a group and it was a lot of fun! We saw eagles, blue herons, foxes, osprey, along the banks of the Mississippi. We were able to go through the locks, which was lucky since if there is a barge in the area they do not allow this. We are talking about going again in the fall when the leaves are changing and birds are migrating.

We took the Friday night Pizza cruise and enjoyed fantastic views of the Mississippi River. Several people from our group had never been on a river cruise and were amazed. Free Pizza and beer along with cruise for $18.95 is hard to beat! Some questioned the cheap price, but soon found out it was good.

mississippi river boat cruise

This was an excellent tour. The guide who did the narrative was friendly, fun and knowledgeable about the town and river. We saw bald eagles, a swing bridge, fancy homes, etc. We sat on the top deck which is covered and has open air sides so you get out of the sun and a nice breeze.

mississippi river cruises

Always wanted to take a cruise on the Mississippi and we booked the early afternoon cruise on a weekday. Boarding went smoothly - they take your picture for sale later as a souvenir. Boat was clean and comfy and captain and staff friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They do have a snack bar and bathrooms on board. Relaxing and enjoyable!

la crosse queen cruises

We went on the La Crosse Queen on a beautiful day. Cruising on the river was so cool. The breeze, scenery was awesome. Best place to view everything is on the top deck. The crew were so polite and fun to talk with. If you have questions they answered them. Hats off to the La Crosse Queen.

Wonderful time on a 2-hour Sunday Brunch cruise. The buffet was small but the price was still good. Met wonderful folks inside and outside during the trip. Got to go through a Lock and Dam. The wait staff were very accommodating. Definitely worth every penny for this adventure.

mississippi river boat cruise

We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary on the La Crosse Queen. The dinner exceeded our expectations. The turkey and roast beef were both tender and moist. For being a buffet the food was delicious. The staff was attentive and live music was a surprise. We were fortunate to have wonderful weather and really enjoyed ourselves!

The cruise company American Queen Voyages offers cruises across the country that stop at dozens of our nation’s most picturesque and historic locations, and you’ll be cruising the nation’s mighty rivers aboard a classic paddlewheel boat.

The company’s paddlewheel river cruises along the Mississippi stretch sections of the river from New Orleans all the way to Minneapolis. On cruises of the Upper Mississippi, fans of Mark Twain can stop in Hannibal, Missouri, to see the historic town that inspired so many of the author’s stories, and cruises on the Lower Mississippi give you time to take in the musical heritage of Memphis and New Orleans.

For those interested in traveling in Tennessee, the company has a riverboat cruise with stops in Nashville and Memphis taking in the music, culture, spirits and of course the barbecue the state is known for. The boat starts its trip in Nashville, and cruises down the Cumberland River making stops in Kentucky and Missouri before winding its way back to Tennessee and landing in Memphis.

In the Pacific Northwest, American Queen Voyages boats cruise the Columbia and Snake rivers, making stops in wine country — and some of these itineraries include on-board wine-tastings as well.

If you lean toward luxury, you’re in luck. There are plenty of upscale rooms for rent including luxury suites with private or open verandas, and deluxe suites with open verandas. For those with a tighter budget, there are more economical options as well, including the single inside stateroom which still offer luxurious touches, but is geared more toward independent travelers.

Furthermore, for those awaiting the holidays, American Queen Voyages has a slew of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s trips. The cruise line is offering a total of 14 different itineraries for its themed trips that leave from various ports, including Memphis, Spokane and New Orleans to name a few.

All inclusive perks include the following:

  • One night pre-cruise hotel stay.
  • Ground transfers between hotel and vessel.
  • Unlimited guided tours.
  • Unlimited beverages.
  • Dining in multiple venues, including in-room dining.
  • Unlimited Wi-Fi.
  • Onboard entertainment and enrichment.
  • Bicycles and hiking sticks for exploring ports of call.

Like to paddle? Marine on St. Croix boat show is for you.

An array of canoes, kayaks, rowboats, bateaus, dinghies and other people-powered boats will be on display next month in Marine on St. Croix.

The fourth annual Canoe & Paddle Crafts Show will be 5-8 p.m. July 9 at Burris Park in Marine on St. Croix. More than 40 boats will be on display, some historic, some created by legendary canoe craftsmen.

“With our local collection of storied paddle craft, it’s pretty easy lifting to host a boat show like this,” said Kevin Nyenhuis, one of the organizers of the event.

Co-organizer Bill Simpson “has paddled more water than most and knows the stories and history of so many canoe builders and boat designs, so this was an event waiting to happen,” Nyenhuis said. “The park will be a living history lesson of paddle craft.”

The event, which is free and open to the public, will include a paddle-making demonstration, music and a spoken-word program.

Speakers include author Angie Hong, who will read from her new book, “Exploring the St. Croix Valley”, a comprehensive guide to the St. Croix Riverway and its 8,000-square-mile watershed. Officials from Wild Rivers Conservancy, Wilderness Inquiry and the Marine Mills Folk School also will be on hand.

Marine on St. Croix has a public St. Croix River canoe access, so attendees are encouraged to “bring a canoe for a paddle on the river,” Nyenhuis said. Attendees also are invited to bring a picnic dinner. The Brookside Bar and Grill will have a special carry-out menu.

Search on for missing paddle boarder last seen entering Pines canal

By Peter D'Oench

June 25, 2024 / 5:44 PM EDT / CBS Miami

KEY BISCAYNE -  The U.S. Coast Guard and a close family friend are appealing for the public's help in finding a paddle boarder who has been missing since 5:15 p.m. on Monday.

Multiple agencies including the Coast Guard, Miami-Dade Police and FWC are searching for 29-year-old Luciano Mercenari, a veteran and skilled paddle boarder who was last seen leaving his family's home entering the Pines Canal on his aqua and orange paddle board while wearing a light grey, long sleeve rash guard that was white and grey sports shorts.

He is 6'2" tall and about 200 pounds.

Family friend Gretel Capriles told CBS News Miami's Peter D'Oench, "He was supposed to go to Stiltsville and he usually does these trips in about two hours and come back before sundown. He has not shown up so we have been looking for him yesterday and today, all over, by sea, by air and with paddle boards around the island. We are hoping we will find him. He is an amazing person and a fisherman. He also won a rowing championship and was a national champ. His nickname was LUC for light. He would Light up everyone around him."

Capriles spoke as dozens of friends and family members went to the family's home in the Cape Florida neighborhood of Key Biscayne on Tuesday.

Capriles said, "He is a kind person and we are going all over this area doing this to get as many people as possible and unite forces to find him. I can not tell you the words it would mean to find him. It would be incredible and I am sure it will happen."

Capriles said Mercenari had never disappeared before.

On Tuesday, Miami-Dade helicopters were seen flying over Key Biscayne as FWC Officers were seen near the family home. A CBS News Miami crew even spotted an officer and his K-9.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Diana Sherbs said, "Around 9:30 Monday night we were called and we launched a small boat from station Miami and then an MH 65 helicopter dolphin crew from air station Miami and they searched until 1:15 a.m. There were no signs of him or the paddle board.

We are hopeful for a positive outcome and we will continue our search until we exhaust all resources and leads."

Sherbs said, "We have a lot of assistance with our work but it never hurts to have more eyes on the lookout."

She urged anyone with information that can help to call the Coast Guard at (305) 535-4300.

Before the competitors hit the water, get familiar with the canoeing history, events and rules to know for the 2024 Paris Olympics :

What’s the difference between canoeing and kayaking?

Canoeists kneel in their boat and use a single-bladed paddle on one side at a time. Kayakers sit in their boat and use a double-bladed paddle.

As an Olympic sport, “canoeing” includes both canoe and kayak events.

When did canoeing become an Olympic sport?

Canoeing made its Olympic debut as a demonstration sport 100 years ago at the 1924 Paris Games . It became a competition sport at the 1936 Berlin Olympics and has been featured at every Summer Olympics since.

Where will canoeing be held at the 2024 Olympics?

All canoeing events will be held at the Vaires-sur-Marne Nautical Stadium , about 20 miles outside of central Paris. The venue opened in 2019 and was the first new Olympic facility to be completed for the 2024 Games.

The Vaires-sur-Marne Nautical Stadium will also host all rowing events .

2024 Olympics canoeing schedule

All canoeing events will be held from Saturday, July 27, through Saturday, Aug. 10 .

Slalom events will run from July 27 through Monday, Aug. 5. Sprint events will run from Tuesday, Aug. 6, through Aug. 10.

What’s the difference between sprint and slalom?

Sprint races are held on flatwater and feature sprints across distances: 200m or 500m for women and 500m or 1,000m for men.

Slalom races, on the other hand, are held in an artificial white-water course. Competitors have to navigate through a course with gates — generally 18 to 25, including some that require the competitors to paddle upstream — as fast as possible while trying not to incur penalties, which come from missing or touching gates.

What is kayak cross?

Instead of going one at a time like other slalom races, kayak cross features four competitors taking on a white-water course simultaneously. 

Olympics canoeing competition format

Kayak cross begins with time trials before moving to heats. All other sprint and slalom events begin with heats.

From there, canoeing events have a varying number of rounds (quarterfinals, semifinals) ahead of the medal final. 

Olympic canoeing rules to know

Sprint races

Olympic sprint races use a mechanical starting gate. A starter says “start within 10 seconds,” and their words are followed by a sound from the starting system. If a competitor begins to paddle after the words are said but before the sound from the starting system, the boat is issued a false start. If a boat gets two false starts, it is disqualified.

Olympic sprint races also have a “five-meter rule,” which aims to prevent a boat from riding another boat’s wake. If a boat gets within five meters of another boat, the course umpire gives the boat in violation a red flag. After the race, the competition committee determines whether or not the boat should be disqualified.

Boats can be disqualified for failing to stay in their lanes or capsizing.

Slalom races

As mentioned before, slalom competitors receive penalties for touching or missing gates.

Kayak cross

As for kayak cross, competitors may make contact with another boat, but they are not allowed to ram into other competitors’ bodies. Competitors are also not allowed to use their paddle to prevent another competitor from moving forward.

Kayak cross competitors drop into the white-water course from an elevated ramp. Breaking the start could lead to disqualification.

Competitors must also complete an eskimo roll during their race. The maneuver requires the competitor to flip a full 360 degrees into the water with the kayak and landing upright.
