                                                           Aside from an amazing pilgrimage, we had great trip with a lot of fun!  Did you
                                                           ever float in the Dead Sea or take a cable car to the top of the ancient city of
                                                           Masada?  Wow!!!  It was breathtaking.

                                    American Queen Steamboat - October, 2018
                                        This trip was all about the boat and the company.  After spending two days in 
                                                            Memphis, TN we cast off and cruised down the river for seven nights on this
                                                            magnificent vessel stopping at various ports and plantations along the way 
                                                            ending up in New Orleans, LA for two nights. Some of our experiences included:
The Peabody Ducks, Beale Street, Graceland, the National Civil Rights Museum, a classic Memphis Barbecue, Natchez, St. Francisville, Baton Rouge, Greenville, Nottoway Plantation, Cafe Du Monde, Morning Star Cafe, NOLA Cemeteries, Preservation Hall, and much, much more.  And then there was the boat - best entertainment on a cruise ship ever - great food, great service - wonderful experience.
