SAMPLE RAVE REVIEWS of Bill Wiemuth’s presentations:

When editors reviewed a recent riverboat cruise onboard American Cruise Lines’ vessel the “America,” Bill’s River History Lecture Series received the highest rating of a perfect score! They wrote that the “enrichment on the ship is first-class, with an enthusiastic river historian.” She even described Bill’s presentations as “riveting.”

The CruiseCritic editor wrote “Excellent Enrichment–Think Civil War history is dry and boring? You haven’t met Bill Wiemuth. The ship’s river historian brings passion and energy to his lectures. Besides his prepared talks, on his sailings Wiemuth holds regular Q&As about the river you’re sailing on, taking queries and pointing out the other vessels on the waterway. We’ve seen many fellow passengers taking notes; we know we’re going to come home having learned something.”
