On the Pittsburgh to St. Louis Cruise you can experience two of America's greatest rivers. Enjoy the Ohio and the Mississippi rivers. The Ohio River was pivotal in the development and exploration of the American West and along the way we highlight much that has defined our American roots from the Civil War to bluegrass music. Or, you can take a milder pace and just kick back with a rocking chair and a glass of sweet tea on the sun deck while American Cruise Lines handles the rest.
Each port of call showcases a new element of Americana. In Henderson, for instance, you may visit the John James Audubon Museum, which features many original works and join our expert guide to learn about the sense of natural wonder that Audubon instilled in so many Americans. While in Louisville, we are treated to a behind the scenes tour of the Churchill Downs, the site of the famed Kentucky Derby, and sample the finest bourbon at the famous Jim Beam Distillery, each destination with a distinct American story to tell.
