River Cruise Newsletter Dated September 19, 2016

Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

American Queen Steamboat Company is offering our customers some great savings on holiday-themed Mississippi River departures this winter. The elegant American Queen paddle wheeler is the world's largest riverboat sailing overnight on this storied river.

Save $800 to $1,800 per couple ($400 to $900 per person) off Holiday - Christmas Markets and other select cruises when you book certain cabin categories.

The line's three holiday departures in December travel between New Orleans and Memphis. A highlight is a festive evening at Nottoway Plantation, built in 1859 and said to be the largest surviving antebellum plantation in the South. After a four-course dinner, guess can stroll through a Christmas market set up on the plantation's grounds, featuring items made by local artists, craftspeople and bakers. The night is capped off by the lighting of traditional Cajun bonfires on the river levee before passengers return to the American Queen for an onboard holiday gala.

Here are more offers from American Queen Steamboat Company.

Save $100 to $800 per couple ($50 to $400 per person) off 2017 sailings on the Mississippi, Columbia and Snake Rivers. More than 80 departures are eligible for this deal, including popular themed voyages that focus on Mark Twain, the Civil War and the Kentucky bourbon industry, as well as brand-new wine-themed cruises in Washington and Oregon.

Finally, save $2,400 per couple ($1,200 per person) off the 2017 departure of The Mighty Mississippi.

The company's U.S.-built ships -- the 432-guest American Queen and the 237-guest American Empress -- resemble classic 19th-century steamboats but boast all the comforts of contemporary cruising. Every sailing includes complimentary wine and beer at dinner and bottled water, soft drinks and specialty coffees throughout the voyage. The onboard dress code is "country club casual," and formal wear is not required.

A third ship will join the fleet next year. The American Duchess will be a smaller and more intimate vessel, carrying 166 guests in 83 suites on the Mississippi River. This ship will be available to book starting October 1.
