October Breast Cancer Awareness Cruise

The American Countess,™ the company’s newest paddlewheeler, is proud to host the October Breast Cancer Awareness Cruise departing on October 17, 2021 to raise money for Susan G. Komen’s mission. Guests and employees will also have the opportunity to contribute to this important cause by joining in a special walkathon at the Nottoway Plantation House, the company’s exclusive port on the Lower Mississippi River or by making additional donations throughout the cruise.

In addition to traditional voyage offerings, there will also be an opportunity to recognize breast cancer survivors and enjoy a pink party sock hop with stellar entertainment and dancing. Guests and crew may also raise additional funds with our Breast Cancer Awareness 5k walk/run at Nottoway, which will include a special finish line celebration.
