Save up to 50% on USA River Cruises

Explore the United States on some of the nation's great waterways, as intimate vessels carry you to fascinating river towns and port cities.

Passengers on a Mississippi River cruise will savor the soul of a nation, visiting some of its most renowned cities. Learn about Civil War history in Vicksburg or the origin of blues, country and jazz in cities like Memphis and New Orleans. Some of these itineraries will also sail the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers. Enjoy the gentle waters of the Ohio River as you sail past St. Louis' legendary gateway arch or visit distinguished Louisville, Kentucky. Guests sailing the Tennessee River, a large tributary of the Ohio River, will see beautiful bridges and possibly pass through the Tennessee River Gorge.

The Hudson River traverses the State of New York flowing north to south, and sailings on this river will travel to famous Big Apple hot spots. Passengers can visit West Point Military Academy or stroll through New York City on a walking tour.

The Erie Canal links Lake Erie to the Hudson River, and guests sailing this waterway will observe its flourishing waterscape and beautiful birds.

Guests cruising the Columbia River will travel through Washington and Oregon. Discover Hells Canyon aboard a covered jetboat or view the Columbia River Gorge as you are immersed in the culture of the Pacific Northwest.

A river cruise offers each guest an insider's look at the rich culture of America. You'll enjoy a leisurely sailing that's easy to budget because your accommodations, most meals and guided sightseeing at each stop are included in one price, paid upfront.
