The American Duchess cruise ship will be docking in Prairie du Chien, Thursday. Aug. 15 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The ship carries 168 passengers and those aboard the cruise ship will have the opportunity to partake in a hop on/hop off tour around Prairie du Chien, including stops to the Villa Louis Historical Site, Fort Crawford Museum, Valley Fish and Cheese and the old Crawford County Jail “The Dungeon.”

“We’re hoping to roll out the red carpet for the cruise ship tourists to hopefully leave a lasting impression on them. If we can do that, hopefully they will want to come back to our city,” said Bob Moses, Prairie du Chien Area Chamber of Commerce CEO.

The Prairie du Chien Chamber Ambassadors will greet the tourists as they get off the ship  and the Prairie du Chien Chamber and Tourism Council will have an information table with various community attractions. 

“We hope if we provide a nice stop for the tourists, it will lead to more stops in the future,” Moses said.

Moses also thanked members of the Prairie du Chien Chamber and Tourism Council for their work with this event. “They did a great job setting everything up and I believe it will lead to a fun and exciting day,” he added.

Members of the community are invited to come and help greet the passengers as they get off the ship.
