After touching down in Memphis, the home of soul, blues and rock 'n' roll guests will spend three nights at the retro Heartbreak Hotel, located on Elvis Presley Boulevard, two minutes from Graceland Mansion, Elvis's former home.
Next, guests will take the Amtrak train to New Orleans, where they'll spend three nights. The Hotel Modern is close to the city's famous French Quarter. Nearby attractions include the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Lonely Planet says New Orleans is "a great city to walk around", igniting the senses with "echoes of unbelievably sweet jazz, funky brass, R&B and blues" and "succulent restaurant aromas".
The trip concludes with a week-long Caribbean cruise. The ship sails to Montego Bay (Jamaica), Grand Cayman (Cayman Islands) and Cozumel (Mexico), before returning to New Orleans for the return flight home.
The price is based on two sharing an Interior Stateroom. Pay £100 more per person for an Ocean View Stateroom or £200 more for a Balcony Stateroom.
