Intro

You will experience something truly unique as you cruise through the Upper Mississippi River Valley appreciating first-hand the true majesty of the many islands, marshlands, wildlife and palisades along the way.

This is the most elegant riverboat to be launched in the last 100 years. Your package is filled with an abundance of unique sightseeing, fun, entertainment topped off with delicious meals from beginning to end that we know you will love and appreciate.

Our first overnight today will be a pleasant surprise in Northern Indiana Amsih Country (Middlebury) where true hospitality is overflowing at our charming Inn. You will love this complex filled with lovely hotel rooms, gift shops, bakery, restaurant, miniature golf, carriage rides, and welcoming landscaping and walking paths to enjoy as you wish during your stay.

July 31

Breakfast included before we say goodbye to our home-away-from-home and continue on to Bettendorf, Iowa for an exciting stay at the Isle Casino Hotel. Here, you will find everything you need under one roof, including hotel rooms, restaurants, casino action and entertainment. The Isle Casino won the "Loosest Slots" award in the state of Iowa. (At time of print, casino bonus offered to our group is $10.00 slot play and complimentary breakfast next morning). If casino action is not to your liking there are many other options to explore such as the nearby Channel Cat Water Taxi located within a block of your hotel. For a small fee, you can enjoy a "hop on - hop off" water taxi for sightseeing, dining and shopping at several different stops where you can get off as you wish. Be sure to get a good night's rest tonight so you are ready for an early morning tomorrow as we head out on our riverboat cruise bright and early.

Brakfast is included at your hotel if you wish. (Continental breakfast and snack will also be served on board your cruise this morning). We will then make our way to the boat dock of the Twilight Riverboat at the charming little river town of Le Claire for boarding this morning. (We will be sailing from Le Claire to Dubuque and back). Welcome to the glory days of riverboat travel as you step back in time to relax and unwind while cruising the Mississippi River in complete style! This is he most elegant riverboat to be launched in the last 100 years. Get ready to be pampered on this lovely cruise complete with a bounty of freshly prepared meals each day, snacks, unique entertainment, bingo, wildlife, and beautiful shoreline scenery with narration. Enjoy the outer decks of the Victorian Twilight for relaxing and strolling as you take in all there is to see as your captain steers through the many bends and turns of the Upper Mississippi River. We will travel through various locks as you experience this first hand from the outside decks while the captian narrates the procedure of "locking through". Your meals are prepared fresh onboard in their fully stocked galley by their special on-board chef and served by their friendly wait staff at your assigned tables. Be sure to bring your binoculars and cameras because this cruise travels through the forested Upper Mississippi Wildlife Refuge which is filled with white pelicans, bald eagles, great blue herons, and many more which seem to have nests all along the way. (This is a vast wilderness hidden smack in the middle of a densely populated center of our country!) You will be serenaded with various forms of entertainment and music on board as you travel. Roam throughout the three decks as you wish and the captain will always announce when it is time for your next meal or snack service. Food is in abundance throughout your time on board and always prepared fresh. You may also want to visit the Pilot House where the captain will welcome you to have your picture taken with him if you wish. Your riverboat cruise will arrive early this evening to dock at River' s Edge Plaza at the Port of Dubuque, Iowa's oldest city, where you will enjoy overnight accommodations at the Grand Harbor Resort Hotel on the waterfront and close to lots of things to enjoy in Dubuque. You will have time this evening to explore the lovely hotel, enjoy a stroll along the river walk, visit the Diamond Joe Casino next door or partake in wine tasting at the nearby Stone Cliff Winery. These activities are all located at the Port of Dubuque and a short walk from your convenient hotel.
