The cruise extension package in the port of Memphis, for example, will include a welcome reception and hotel accommodations in the heart of the “Blues City.” Guests will stroll Beale Street, lined with unique shops and music venues, and enjoy a Memphis-style BBQ cooking lesson from a local chef. Guests will also experience a unique “fowl” tradition dating back to 1933 at the famous Memphis-Peabody Hotel, as the Peabody Ducks march to and from the Grand Lobby for a drink in the fountain. Travelers will also get the chance to visit the birthplace of rock n’ roll at Sun Studios with a tour of the historic studio where music legends B.B King, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash recorded. The journey continues with a trip to the National Civil Rights Museum, built around the original Lorraine Hotel where Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated.
