Our group took the Sunday brunch cruise in early October. The weather was fantastic and the leaves were changing so it was a lovely way to spend part of the day. We enjoyed the brunch, which is served buffet style. There were plenty of choices,...More

We boarded the Mississippi Queen to enjoy the fall foliage. We found the boat to be VERY well kept and the staff competent and friendly. They exceeded our expectations.
