Yorktown Cruise Review
Itinerary: Springtime on the Mississippi River and Gulf Coast - March 2013
Eleven day sailing round trip New Orleans, over Easter and Passover.
Terrific time, my favorite small ship sailing to date, and we have been on many. The ship was lovely but the itinerary is what made it so special.
The ship arrived in New Orleans a few hours late, since this was the first sailing, not sure why that happened. Fog in the channel we understand.
We were welcomed on board with friendly staff and were immediately taken care of. Food and drinks were waiting for us as soon as we could unpack.
We had an AA Cabin on the Promenade Deck. Cabin was immaculate. Good choice for us Linda, thank you.
We started right off with good food, educational lectures, wonderful ports. Interesting shore talks and walks. History, culture, southern and Civil War, we learned so much. Visits to a number of antebellum homes was a thrill for us. Pensacola, the Naval Aviation Museum, Vicksburg Military Park, Oak Alley Plantation,;it was something new and exciting every day.
Our Team of Experts on the ship were full of information that was presented in an interesting rather than classroom environment. They were with us to ask questions, to talk to while passing time on the ship. They were without exception a huge addition to an already fabulous experience.
My brochure says, "Travel, Learn & Enrich your Expeiences" and I feel that is exactlay what this sailing provided. And a good value for the dollar. Thank you to the staff.
