Cruise West to offer Mississippi River service
MISSISSIPPI RIVER — Cruise West, a Seattle, Wash.-based small-ship explorations company, announced two new itineraries sailing on the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland rivers starting in March 2011.
These inaugural voyages will take place aboard the Spirit of America, formerly the Spirit of Glacier Bay.
“This market has been underserved since 2008 with the departure of Majestic Cruise line,” said Dietmar Wertanzl, Cruise West’s president and CEO. “We are proud to be the only cruise line offering overnight cruises on these great American Rivers.”
In addition to sailing the Mississippi, the Spirit of America will make numerous stops, including Natchez and Vicksburg National Military Park, scene of the Civil War battle that gave the North control of the Mississippi.
Strolling through Helena, Ark. – one-time home to no fewer than seven generals of the confederacy.
The second new river voyage will run north from Memphis.
