Information on the major cruise ports of the USA


Old South beauty, Creole culture, Cajun zest, colorful politics and an all-around good time – a good reason for Majestic America Line riverboats to cruise a round trip from Baton Rouge.

Today Baton Rouge’s rich cultural tradition can be seen in its unique attractions, heard in its Zydeco, Blues and Cajun music, and tasted in its blend of Creole, African American, French and Spanish cuisine.

The USS KIDD & Veterans Memorial Museum on the riverfront is a National Historic Landmark. Louisiana’s Old State Capitol has many multi-media exhibits and hands on activities.

For the kids there is the Louisiana Art & Science Museum, housed in a 1920’s train depot; making a splash at Blue Bayou Water Park; riding a roller coaster at Dixie Landin’ Theme Park; a stop at the Baton Rouge Zoo; and The Enchanted Mansion: A Doll Museum.

Kids of all ages will want to take a ride on the wild side with the Alligator Bayou Swamp Tour, a 90-minute narrative on the history, biology and ecology of the swamp.

A walking tour of an urban swamp is also offered at the Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center where children can enjoy nature trails, wildlife, and educational exhibits.

For a glimpse of plantation life, there is Laura Plantation and Magnolia Mound Plantation featuring an interactive tour of an early Creole Plantation.
