St. Louis to Memphis Cruise Summary
The waters of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers are renowned for remaining different colours when they meet at the confluence of these mighty tributaries.

In Memphis, revisit the stomping grounds of some of the greatest musical legends in history, including the King himself, Elvis Presley.
Discover the attractions of New Madrid and the breathtaking Gateway Arch of St. Louis, which has been towering over America’s hidden gem of a city for more than half a century. Soak up the atmosphere of Cape Girardeau, immortalised by Mark Twain in “Life on the Mississippi”.
