The "America" riverboat showed up yesterday at our waterfront in the Yazoo Diversion Canal with her passengers to tour our civil war town. It was a cloudless day with temps up to 87 degrees and a beautiful day to enjoy the historical sites. The American Queen will return Friday, Queen of The Mississippi, Tuesday, March 28 and both the America and American Queen, Wednesday, March 29. It's great to have all the riverboats visiting our historic town of Vicksburg: The Key To The South!
The "America" is the second brand-new vessel of eight to be launch in 2016 by the American Cruise Lines in 2016. This picture was taken between 4:30 and 5:00 when most passengers were already on board to leave Vicksburg at 5:30 for other ports of call on the Mississippi River.
