This morning we will board the Twilight Riverboat for an all day journey up the river! The most Elegant Riverboat to be Launched in the Last 100 Years! Fast, elegant and quiet as she slips through the water, there are three decks with comfortable dining salons and sun decks with lounge chairs to sight see or snooze in the sun. Air conditioned or heated for comfort in any season. The TWILIGHT designed and built by Captain Dennis Trone, is a replica of the lavish Victorian steamboats of a century ago. Her unique rounded stern and ornate architectural detailing are reminders of those classic riverboats Mark Twain called "Floating Palaces".  Board the Twilight in Le Claire, Iowa. Continental breakfast is waiting for us. Depart Northbound for Dubuque, IA. Lunch and dinner meals will be served to you at your reserved table by their friendly staff.  Should you suffer from hunger pangs between meals, never fear. The morning and afternoon snacks will keep hunger at bay. Enjoy afternoon entertainment and interesting narration by the Captain.  Arriving at the Grand Harbor Resort in Dubuque this evening. Located in the Port of Dubuque, the hotel offers magnificent views of historic downtown Dubuque, city bluffs and spectacular views of the sparkling Mississippi River just steps outside the door.    (B, L, D)

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before departing for the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium.  The Museum is where you can explore the Mighty Mississippi and the rivers of America at one site! An affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum & Aquarium’s riverfront campus is the only interpretive center for the entire Mississippi River. Take an informative, entertaining journey on the Mighty Mississippi: enjoy dynamic aquariums, historical exhibits, and a stroll through the wetlands and boatyard. Each visit is a truly interactive experience where you can get “up close and personal” with live critters, dive into history, and tour the National Landmark  dredgeboat William M. Black.  Then, time to reflect on the unique places visited & sites seen as the countryside rolls by on our return home.    (B)
