It wouldn’t be the Mississippi without the steamboat, and standing on the Dolly Parton Bridge (think about it) in Memphis gets you thinking about when you’ll hop on one.
Which might be earlier than you think.
Because their small ships are exempt from the no-sail order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The American Queen Steamboat Company is offering an eight or nine-day New Orleans to Memphis (or reverse).
Running from now through November you will have a choice of ships… American Countess ($2299pp), American Queen ($2499pp) or American Duchess ($2999pp).
Now here’s a beauty from Dolly to get you in the mood https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9UzdIcnLv-w.
You know when you wish you had just kept your thoughts to yourself.
And thanks my friend Jennifer from Royal Caribbean and my old stomping ground of Greystones, Co. Wicklow in Ireland for flagging up this one.
And you’ll always find a cocktail
Because she’s flagging up A Girls Getaway taster cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas.
Five nights full board (all meals and entertainment) for May 4. Two sharing £390pp/€463pp. Deposit £150pp/€165pp.
You’ll depart Barcelona and visit Provence, Florence/Pisa and Rome. Just add a flight to Barcelona.
She also mentions that it would be just as suitable for a lads or family trip but the fact that they headline it as a Girlie trip..
Well, that only alerts You Know Who. Again, thanks Jennifer.
And a reminder of what I get up to when I’m away (that’s printable) A Royal Party and https://www.google.com/amp/s/jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2020/03/24/messi-around-on-the-water/amp/.
