A journey on the Mississippi River is a quintessential American experience.

In the mid 1800’s, steamboats were the fastest, most elegant form of travel available. Mark Twain called them “Floating Palaces.” These days, cruises like the Riverboat Twilight make it possible to go back to those times and really appreciate the beauty, history and exhilaration of “Life on the Mississippi.”

The Riverboat Twilight features three levels and a pilot house; all structurally and artistically detailed Victorian style. The 2018 Season features three Mississippi River Cruises; • 2-Day, • 1-Day, and • 1½ Hour Sightseeing.

 

2-Day Signature Cruise

This journey begins at LeClaire, Iowa; boyhood home of William F “Buffalo Bill” Cody. Situated along a beautiful bend on the Upper Mississippi River, it was home to many successful river pilots. A continental breakfast awaits as passengers board at 8am. By the time everyone has explored the boat and enjoyed their first good eyeful of river scenery, a mid-morning snack is ready.

The Captain provides an excellent guide to the wildlife, valley landscapes and historic river towns. Other highlights include passing through two Locks & Dams and viewing eagles, pelicans and cormorants by the hundreds.

Enjoy live entertainment, games, two snacks, lunch and dinner before arriving in historic Dubuque, Iowa. Accommodations are at the riverfront Grand Harbor Resort, where your luggage will be waiting in your room. The evening is yours to enjoy and explore the city of 5 flags; France, Spain, Great Britain, Napoleon and USA.

Day two begins with breakfast at Tony Roma’s in the resort. Then using the complimentary shuttle you can explore the architecture, shopping and history of Iowa’s oldest city. Admission is included to Iowa’s #1 attraction, the must-see Smithsonian-accredited National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium.

Reboarding is at 11am as the Twilight prepares to depart for the return journey. Taking in all the sites that you missed on the trip upriver, you will also enjoy lunch and dinner served at your table. Arrival back in LeClaire is at approximately 7pm. With departures on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, this is the most popular cruise with many dates selling out well in advance.
