Tomorrow the American Duchess is suppose to show up at our waterfront for the very first time for a half-a-day. I'm looking forward to taking some pictures of her while passengers tour our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, Mississippi.
The American Duchess is the first all-suite paddlewheeler on U.S. rivers, a floating, intimate masterpiece that can carry up to 166 guests through America's heartland. The paddlewheeler, created from a 1995 hull, was completely reconstructed to become one of the most luxurious river cruising vessels in the country, featuring single-seating main dining and entertainment venues, soaring ceilings, and all of the features guests have come to expect.
We welcome the American Duchess with open arms and hope this is the first of many returns to our historical city of Vicksburg: The Key To The South!
UPDATE: Looks like the "American Duchess" will be making her maiden voyage in August according to Pat Millett. The riverboat scheduled said she would come in today but things are subject to change. Could not find her docked at the waterfront this morning according to my app FINDSHIP. Looking forward to the "American Duchess" arrival in August and taking pictures of her.
