ZAP is rolling down the Mississippi for a new Americana adventure.

You’ve sailed the open oceans and intimate rivers of Europe, now it’s time explore the joys of travel closer to home with ZAP! In the Spring of 2024, when the waters are fully flowing, join us on the mighty Mississippi River as we travel from town to town and experience the charms of bygone eras. Endure the Cajun way of the Bayou in small towns filled with profound history, complemented by the big city energy of the Big Easy and Baton Rouge. Everything is rich here, from the dramatic history to the local southern cuisine, which pairs perfectly with Zinfandel!

Learn about the history of the true American spirit – bourbon, and immerse yourself in soulful sounds of the blues during F&WT’s optional Bourbon & Blues pre-cruise land program. Whether you like your bourbon neat, on the rocks or with a splash, you are sure to enjoy this incredible tasty and musical opportunity.

Sample Dozens of Top Wines
ZAP’s onboard wine-themed events are back with your winemaker hosts offering delightful company. Included in your ZAP cruise is a welcome reception, wine dinner and of course our renowned wine tastings.

All-Inclusive Ship Experience
ZAP’s Executive Director, Rebecca Robinson has recently visited the Countess to learn first-hand about this offering and will accompany the group on our inaugural Roots cruise. The Countess is a mix of classic steamboat exterior and modern deluxe interior with spacious two-story grand lobby and bar, stylish décor, roomy staterooms and ensuites with a sophisticated approach. Taking inspiration from the river, the cuisine is inspired with local ingredients and techniques unique to the south, making Zinfandel a perfect accompaniment to any meal!
