10 Themed River Cruises to Take in 2016

by Lisa Cheng | February 24, 2016

1. Bourbon Cruise

Line: American Queen Steamboat Company

Bourbon hails from the foothills of Kentucky and the Ohio River, and this cruise is pure Americana. The spirit takes center stage with bourbon-enhanced dinner menus, a cooking-with-bourbon class, and onshore visits to the Maker’s Mark, Wild Turkey, and Jim Beam distilleries. Back onboard, a jug band will play and bourbon historian Michael Veach and Buffalo Trace’s Donn Flinn will lecture on all things bourbon-related.

Dates: July 10-18, 2016, sailing from St. Louis to Cincinnati
