Review summary

Excellent trip for older people. 98 percent of people on the trip were 60 or older. There were a few families and several teens with their grandparents. Food was good and the entertainment was excellent. It was easy to get around at the various stops. The boat has 3 buses that follows the route on land. They were present at each stop to transport us to town. They followed a route to each point of interest, so you could get on and off the bus depending on what you were interested in visiting. The weather was hot and humid at this time of the year. We enjoyed the post trip to the brewery in St. Louis. Graceland is highly commercialized. All in all a relaxing trip.

We were probably at the end of the cabin stewarts cleaning cycle, so our room didn't get cleaned until after 12:00. The room was clean. We had an inside room, but the size wasn't a problem.

Ship tip

Not a cruise for a young family. Not activities for young children, though there was a pool.
