    Three nights on the Emmylou slowly meandering along the river was exceptional. The old world charm and pace from the start automatically made you slow down and appreciate what we have. Low clouds and drizzle, with puffs of smoke drifting past while having dinner on the back deck on the first night set the tone for the trip - and the experience continued for the rest of the trip. Really helpful staff that do everything they can to make trip perfect. Beware, there is a lot of great food, you do run the risk of over indulging, but that's just a part of a slow trip on the river.
