Mark Twain Tribute Cruises
Few American authors are as beloved as Samuel Clemens, more famously known by his pen name, Mark Twain. His most famous works - The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - are American classics, considered to be 'must-reads' for anyone interested in literature. The characters and locations in these novels may be fictional, but Twain based these works on elements of his real life, primarily with influences from his childhood.
Twain's hometown of Hannibal, MO, is the featured stop on our Mark Twain Tribute Cruise from St. Louis to St. Paul. Travel along the Mississippi River - much like Huck Finn - and stop in Hannibal allows guests to take part in an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the town, including a look at Huck Finn's house and the Becky Thatcher home. You will also be visited by a Mark Twain impersonator, who will showcase the history of this remarkable cultural icon. Celebrate the life and work of Mark Twain on this historical cruise.
