American Queen Steamboat Company

American Queen Steamboat Company specializes in overnight cruises onboard an authentic paddlewheel steamboat. Bringing Mark Twain's America to life, each itinerary provides a rich experience along the Mississippi and its tributaries. From vibrant cities such as St. Louis and St. Paul to southern treasures like Natchez and Vicksburg, American Queen Steamboat Company provides memorable journeys through America's heartland.

The American Queen -- a genteel, floating antebellum mansion -- is your home on the Mississippi, Ohio and Tennessee rivers. While the atmosphere onboard is casual, this elegant steamboat features luxurious Americana flair with fresh flowers, antiques and lacy filigree adorning its halls and decks. Every evening, enjoy showboat-style entertainment or dance to swing, big band or Dixieland jazz music.

Shore excursions by "Steamcoach" explore the many towns and cities along America's natural highways. All cruises offer daily lectures from an onboard river historian, while special theme voyages feature topics as varied as the Civil War, fall colors and the music of the 1950s and 1960s.

River cruises are rated according to the quality of the vessel and its accommodations, the number of included amenities and activities both on and off the ship, and the level of service delivered. American Queen Steamboat sailings are categorized as deluxe on the industry rating scale (budget, first class and deluxe).
