You'll spend the first two nights of the holiday at the Comfort Inn Downtown Memphis, which overlooks the Mississippi River. Beale Street is less than 20 minutes' walk from the hotel, so you can spend the evenings bar-hopping among the famous blues joints and soaking in the city's "wild river-town spirit" (Lonely Planet). While you're here, you'll tour Elvis Presley's famous Graceland estate, where you'll discover the story of the King of Rock and Roll.
On the third day, you'll take an Amtrak train ride through America's Deep South to New Orleans, where you'll spend two nights at the InterContinental New Orleans. The hotel is three blocks from the jazz clubs of New Orleans's French Quarter -- "battered and bohemian, decaying and vibrant, it remains the spiritual core of the city", says Rough Guides. The Carnival season begins on the Day of Epiphany (6 January), so you might catch some of the parades in the lead up to the main event on 25 February.
On the fifth day, you'll board Carnival Glory for a week-long Caribbean cruise. The ship visits Mahogany Bay, a private cruise port owned by Carnival Cruise Line in Roatan, Honduras; Belize City, the colourful historical capital of Belize; and Cozumel, a Mexican island famous for its "quiet cool", "genuine authenticity" and "spirited Caribbean energy" (Lonely Planet).
Carnival Glory is one of Carnival's Conquest class of cruise ships. It has several places where you can eat for free, including buffet, pizza and Mexican restaurants, and other amenities include a theatre, a large outdoor swimming pool and a comedy club.
Add two nights in Nashville, at the Hilton Garden Inn Nashville Downtown Convention Center, for £290 per person.
