'America' Riverboat Christened at Oak Alley Plantation
On the banks of the Mississippi River at Louisiana's Oak Alley Plantation, American Cruise Lines christened its newest riverboat, 185-passenger America.
Following the christening, passengers sipped mint juleps and toured Oak Alley, a regular stop on Lower Mississippi River itineraries. The antebellum plantation is known for the live oaks that lead up to the historic mansion, framing it in pictures.
America has been in service since the beginning of May. The boat will sail itineraries on the Lower and Upper Mississippi River, with embarkations in New Orleans, Memphis, St. Louis and St. Paul.
