American Queen Steamboat Company ... Experience America's Rivers
Embark on a Historic Exploration through the Heartland and Pacific NorthwestDiscover America's legendary waterways on a relaxing, intimate river cruise, where personalized service and small passenger counts meet big ship amenities. American Queen Steamboat Company features unique luxury cruises that get you up close to the history, culture and scenery of some of the most iconic and picturesque regions of the U.S.
Trademark Mississippi River itineraries offer a southern-style slowdown on routes through shaded landscapes between influential cities from New Orleans to St. Paul. See the grand plantations of the Old South and the charming towns that inspired Mark Twain on a tour of the country's Great River Road dotted with blues clubs and barbecue spots.
The Mighty Mississippi is just the beginning. Meander past Civil War battlefields and southern landmarks like the Grand Ole Opry® on a cruise along the Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland rivers. Discover the mountains, canyons, wildlife, and wineries of the Pacific Northwest on the Columbia and Snake rivers. You can even take a specialized cruise with themes that are quintessentially American: bourbon, U.S. presidents, the Fourth of July, Big Band music, and beyond.
The fleet's two steam-powered vessels driven by bright red paddlewheels combine modern luxury with classic elegance. Both the American Queen - the world's largest riverboat - and the American Empress are adorned with accents from days gone by to perfectly complement your cruise experience. You'll truly feel as though you've stepped back in time, from the Queen's Victorian-era woodwork to the Gold Rush art aboard the Empress.
As you cruise, enjoy the dramatic passing scenery from multiple decks in addition to onboard entertainment such as lectures on local history and live music and dancing. American Queen Steamboat's modern comforts and accommodations include multiple dining options, complimentary beverages, spa, pool, gym, and more. And, exciting shore excursions - accompanied by dedicated motorcoaches - await in each port.
You won't find a more enchanting journey through American history than aboard an American Queen Steamboat Company river cruise. Choose your historic experience and book today.
