Nottaway was a lovely stop. A simple stroll over the levy took us to the house. The guides were lovely and it was just a nice relaxed day.

Our guide was a professional singer so she treated us to a song at the end.

The house was very well cared for, especially it’s unusual white room.

They certainly knew how to lay a beautiful table.

One thing I’ve loved is the use of the golf carts to get us over the levies etc. The guys driving them were so nice and helpful.

One last dinner and one last play around taking sunset pictures at the Engine Room bar and it was time for our last sleep onboard.

It’s the usual end of cruise ritual, cases outside your door by 11pm don’t forget to keep some clothes to wear for the morning. Tomorrow we will take the ships tour of New Orleans before heading to our hotel.

If you download the American Queen Voyages app to your phone, you can view the HOHO routes for the stops for each boat.  There's a little audio file that describes what's available at each one.

 

What a neat site!  I’ve enjoyed listening to the tour of each of our port stops. 

However—— do not rely solely on the app. In Cincinnati, for example, there were 3 discrepancies.  Two of the stops are no longer included. Another stop has been added back on (but is not included on the app).

Thanks for your informative trip review! We'll be on a Sept AQ-Countess trip

from Minneapolis to NOLA, looking forward to the HOHO buses and greatly appreciated your comments on that aspect.  Plus the menus look lovely...

 

PS....remembering a long-ago vacation in GB and Scotland:  Edinburgh, Inverness,

train to Kyle-Lochalsh and Sky.  Lovely, no other words!
