American Queen Voyages wants to take one lucky client and their plus-one on a tasty treat of a cruise—all they need to do is enter the line’s Taste of the Mississippi River Cruise sweepstakes, offered together with the brand’s new partner, America’s Test Kitchen.

“We are thrilled to partner with America’s Test Kitchen to offer this one-of-a-kind culinary adventure on the Mississippi River and give one lucky winner the opportunity to experience our new culinary program,” said Cindy D’Aoust, president of American Queen Voyages, in a press statement. “We have formed an incredible partnership with America’s Test Kitchen, and this is just the beginning of what we have planned for our guests and viewers.”

American Queen Voyages’ Delish River Adventure

The lucky winner of this sweepstakes will embark on a 9-day sailing on American Queen with their also-lucky plus one, but this is not just any ordinary sailing. The voyage itself departs from New Orleans to Memphis from Oct. 29 through Nov. 6, 2023, and it will be an adventure for body, soul and palate.

To wit: Culinary Ambassador Regina Charboneau and America’s Test Kitchen Executive Editorial Director Bridget Lancaster will accompany this sailing. This means your client will be tieing on an apron and participating in a private culinary class with Ms. Charboneau, plus they’ll also take home America’s Test Kitchen merchandise, cookbooks and a six-month membership to America’s Test Kitchen Online Cooking School—making this voyage’s souvenirs ones that will no doubt last a lifetime.

The winner and their companion will also receive a one-night pre-cruise hotel stay, unlimited guided tours, unlimited beverages, open bars and lounges, locally sourced and regionally inspired cuisine and more. In addition, port taxes and fees, pre-paid gratuities and airfare for the winner and their guest are also included in the prize.
