Trip Length: 9 nights
Trip: Louisville to Memphis
Cruise line: American Queen Steamboat Company | American Countess

Venture through the heartland of America as you sample from its distilleries and experience good old Kentucky charm. Begin your journey with an included two-night Louisville Pre-Cruise Program, featuring tours of several historic Kentucky bourbon distilleries, including bourbon tasting and lunch. Embark the American Countess and set sail on the Ohio River. Stop to taste the traditions of Brandenburg, Kentucky’s bourbon-infused past, and in Owensboro, learn the history of the distillers who operate around the city, including the Glenmore Distillery Company.

From Henderson to Paducah, feast your way through the foods of Kentucky. Try a bowl of burgoo or order up a slice of derby pie. Explore New Madrid, Missouri with its history of earthquakes, collection of Native American artifacts, and Civil War history. Immerse yourself in the culture of artisans in Paducah with its National Quilt Museum, galleries of art, and foodie haven.
