St. Anselm Young of Heart in Chesterland will be going to Iowa for a 2-day Mississippi River Cruise on the Twilight Riverboat on Sept. 28-Oct. 1. We will cruise 166 miles roundtrip with all meals, snacks and entertainment included on board.
The Twilight is a replica of the lavish Victorian steamboats of a century ago. She has three decks with comfortable dining salons and sun decks with lounge chairs for those who wish to sightsee or snooze in the sun. Entertainment may include a visit from “Mark Twain.”
We do not stay overnight on the boat, so we will be staying at the Grand Harbor Resort in Dubuque.
In the morning, before going back on the cruise, there will be time to visit the National Mississippi Museum, the Old Jail Museum, the Fourth Street Elevator or the Diamond Jo Casino. The first and third nights will be spent at the Isle of Capri Casino in Bettendorf.
On the way home we will stop at the John Deere Pavilion and also have an Amish style lunch in Indiana. Baggage handling and most gratuities are included.
The cost for this trip is $667 pp ($679 for non-members). For reservations call Nancy Battenfield at 440-729-9684.
