Keillor will be joined on the cruise by “Prairie Home” regulars Tim Russell and Sue Scott, sound-effects man Fred Newman and the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band with Richard Dworsky.

The 10-day trip begins Aug. 21 in Barcelona. Stops include Marseille, France; Monte Carlo; Livorna, Tuscany; Rome; Naples; Kotor, Montenegro; Ravenna, Italy; and Venice.

The cruise is open to the public. Reservations can be made through the “Prairie Home Companion” website.
