Memphis port? or Tunica?


Recommended Posts

We board next Monday. I have noticed a few posts saying they boarded in Tunica instead of Memphis.

Is this normal? What time do the buses leave from the Sheraton Downtown Memphis to go to Tunica? It appears to be about an hour away.

Thanks for any help.

JJGOLD mentioned in the thread American queen Train wreck that the water level was too low in Memphis to make a port call there.

I know it was pretty low in early August when we were there on the Duchess Mighty Mississippi cruise.

We boarded Monday in Tunica. Maybe because of water level but we also noticed there is major work being done at the port and along the river in Memphis. 

Today we are scenic cruising instead of visiting Vicksburg. Low water is the issue.  This was the port my husband was looking forward to the most.
