  • First, we’re going to send you by rail, in your own cabin!  Your roomette features two comfortable seats by day transformed to upper and lower beds by night. Each room includes a big picture window, newly upgraded bedding, pillows, towels and linens and access to a restroom and shower in your car.  You’ll have a dedicated First-Class attendant who will provide turndown service, assist with meals and help with luggage. All customers in private rooms receive complimentary lounge access at major stations, priority boarding and complimentary meals onboard.
  • Next, you’ll stay for three nights and three days at The Kimpton Brice Hotel.  Like any good Southern belle — beautiful and poised on the outside, a bit sassy and rebellious on the inside. Enjoy the boutique hotel's best-of-both-worlds charms right in the center of Savannah's National Historic Landmark District.
  • You can’t visit Savannah without a proper tour—and we’ve got several lined up for you but depending on what you like or the time of year you decide to go—you may want to opt for something else.  Here are some of our favorites:
    • Savannah Old Town Trolley:  All aboard Savannah's Best Tour! Experience over 270 years of history as our expert tour conductors relate the stories, sights and landmarks of Georgia's First City!
    • Harbor Dinner Cruise: Enjoy a buffet dinner with something to satisfy everyone's palate! Menu selections include our Savannah style shrimp and grits, a carving station featuring top sirloin beef, catch of the day fresh fish, lemon & artichoke chicken with spinach, side salads, fresh garden salads and much, much more! After dinner, snap your fingers and tap your feet or get up and dance to tunes from the 50's up through today's hits performed by our own riverboat entertainers. Venture up to our third deck and enjoy the calm Savannah evenings and the amazing sights and sounds of the historic city of Savannah.
    • Ghosts and Gravestones Tour: Savannah is often referred to as "America's Most Haunted City!" Her turbulent history has unleashed a fascination with the supernatural. Step aboard the "trolley of the doomed" as you share tales of murder and mayhem, ghosts, ghouls and other mysterious happenings and phenomena. INCLUDING ENTRY INTO THE COLONIAL PARK CEMETERY AND THE PERKINS AND SONS SHIP CHANDLERY!
