Southern Style River Cruises

One of my all time favorite books and movies is Gone With the Wind. Although romance books themselves are not my thing, historical fiction is. And who doesn’t love this book.

So recently I’ve come across a new cruise line that will be debuting this spring and it always makes me think of GWTW. It’s a river cruise line right here in the US, which is a rare find. For the most part, if you want to river cruise you need to go to Europe, Russia or China. But now we have the Great American Steamboat Company.  You can’t look at this ship, the American Queen, and not envision Scarlett and Rhett on their honeymoon to New Orleans. In fact, its maiden voyage is a 6 night roundtrip cruise from New Orleans. With a visit to Oak Alley Plantation, basically think Tara, your GWTW trip is complete.

The Great American Steamboat Company offers many different themed cruises and different itineraries. If you are interested in history and southern hospitality it might be the perfect cruise for you. I’ll give more details about this new river cruise line next time.
