About "Astronauts on the Mississippi":
Celebrate both river travel and space travel on the grand American Queen with Scott Carpenter, Gordon Cooper and Wally Schirra, three of the original Mercury Seven astronauts -- hear them speak about their adventures and engage in riveting Q&A sessions!
On the day you board the American Queen, you'll start your day with a pre-cruise tour of Stennis Space Center and greet the astronauts. Located a short distance from New Orleans on the Louisiana/Mississippi border, Stennis is responsible for NASA's rocket propulsion testing, and plays a key role in NASA's earth science applications program.
On board the grand American Queen, you'll enjoy luxurious staterooms, four sumptuous meals a day, award-winning jazz and blues entertainment, and pampering from the crew. You'll cruise up the Mississippi River back in time to the moss-draped Old South, calling on opulent plantations and haunting Civil War battlefields.
This New Orleans & Riverboat Adventure Week vacation includes a 4-night cruise on the grand American Queen and a FREE 3-night New Orleans hotel stay. You can stay at one of the best hotels, such as the Windsor Court® or the Ritz-Carlton®, eat at famous restaurants like Emeril's® and Antoine's®, and get your choice of tickets to 30 of New Orleans' most popular attractions.
