“We chose this domestic cruise this year as a way for members to reconnect with their own country’s roots at a leisurely pace,” relates FRIAR Chairman H. Stephen Bailey. “No international flights, no passports, no language barriers - just Americana to be experienced by the turning of the paddle wheel.”
Scheduled for July 1 through July 8, 2017, IARFC members and friends can enjoy this 7-day adventure on the American Cruise Lines’ “America” and attend the CE@SEA continuing education conference onboard – a floating classroom of convenience.
The trip includes: all meals, complimentary cocktail hour, wine and beer served with lunch and dinner; one complimentary excursion at each port of call, nightly entertainment, daily onboard expert lectures and a pre-night accommodation in downtown Memphis adjacent to the historic Beale Street District with transfers to the riverboat.
Private shore excursions will provide an insider’s perspective of classic Antebellum homes, Civil War battlefields and the iconic Oak Alley plantation. In the evenings, passengers can relax in comfort on their private balcony as they take in the spectacular rolling river views.
“I am a southerner and an experienced IARFC cruiser,” explains Jon Rogers, IARFC Board Director. I am delighted that we are drawing people to our own country and our own treasured waterways. What could be better than to visit these geographical locations only read about in history books.”
