Home to the Blues, BBQ, Beale Street, and the King of Rock’n’Roll, it’s never been more exciting to explore Memphis with American Cruise Lines. We offer two convenient Pre-Cruise Package options, providing you with a seamless way to board the ship and explore the local area. Choose from our brand-new 2-night Graceland Signature Pre-Cruise Package or our 1-night Complimentary Pre-Cruise Package. Arrive in Memphis two days before your scheduled cruise and enjoy an extended stay at the world-class Graceland Guest House, just steps away from the most renowned musical attraction of the world. You’ll visit museums, exhibits, and explore the vibrant downtown. On the morning of your cruise, all of your luggage will be transported from your hotel and waiting for you in your stateroom. These pre-cruise packages are available on the Lower Mississippi River and our (brand new) Music Cities Cruise.

New this year, our Music Cities itinerary takes you from Memphis to Nashville where you’ll explore all that the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers have to offer, ending your trip in the country music mecca of the world. From the legendary Grand Ole Opry to the Country Music Hall of Fame, Nashville is sure to make your feet tap.

If honky-tonks and live music aren’t at the very top of your bucket list, our Lower Mississippi River Cruise is one of our most popular itineraries – and for good reason. This eight-day/seven-night cruise takes you on a cultural journey like no other. You’ll experience customized excursions like Oak Alley and Natchez, and delve deep into Civil War History in Vicksburg. All of these stops include historians who will lead you through the era that shaped American history forever. On top of all that, you’ll relax in comfort on your private balcony as you take in the spectacular rolling river views.

Both the Lower Mississippi and Music Cities cruises offer you the option to ride one of the finest, authentic paddlewheelers ever built, or board one of our revolutionary modern riverboats. Each ship offers an elevated cruise experience, personalized exploration, well-designed enrichment programs onboard and ashore, as well as all the comforts that come with cruising on our amazing fleet.
