American Queen Steamboat Company offers overnight cruises of the Mississippi River and its tributaries, along with sailings on the Columbia River in the Pacific Northwest, aboard authentic paddle-wheel steamboats. The atmosphere on board is casual, and the ship decor exudes Americana, with gingerbread trim and lacy filigree adorning the decks.

Enjoy regionally inspired cuisine, wine and beer with dinner, daily presentations from historians and nightly entertainment, all covered in the price of the trip. A hop-on/hop-off motorcoach tour is provided at each port so you can explore at your own pace, with free admission to many celebrated attractions. Themed sailings also include special activities that focus on Civil War history, musical interests and other topics.
