AMERICAN QUEEN STEAMBOAT COMPANY
Mississippi riverboat cruising at it's BEST is back!
NEW for 2014... Columbia and Snake River Cruises on the American Empress.



2014 Preview

When one thinks of a Mississippi riverboat cruise it kind of conjures up so many interesting and diverse thoughts. For many of us, Mark Twain, Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer race across our minds, followed quickly by places like Natchez, Vicksburg, Chattanooga and of course, the biggest “happening” in the States, the one and only New Orleans. You’ll experience history up close and personal as you visit antebellum mansions and the places that molded America for ever.

There is more history along the Mississippi and Ohio Valley than probably any other region in the States. And while we think of Steamboating along the mighty Mississippi, you can also enjoy [during select times of the year] the luxurious American Queen along the 1,000 miles of the Ohio River as well.

And when you think about steamboating, you may initially think of old, rickety ships with squeaky floors, billowing smoke and Bret Maverick roaming the decks, but you would be oh, so wrong. Although from a far she looks just like what you envision, the brand new American Queen is the antithesis of that memory, that time and that genre of passenger.

The ship is now the only authentic overnight paddlewheel steamboat sailing in America. She was built to exacting specifications of 19th century paddle wheelers, but with the tastes of today’s discriminating travelers in mind. The American Queen accommodates about 450 passengers in a myriad of beautifully appointed suites and staterooms, including single cabins at very affordable rates. No matter which accommodations you select, you can enjoy the resort-casual environment, sip on a “mint julep” and leave the formal wear at home.

Public areas of the ship are expansive and like your beautiful stateroom, decorated in Victorian style with real period antiques. The lounges are reminiscent of bygone times aboard river cruises and we guarantee you’ll be amazed and entertained by the nightly showboat-style entertainment each night of your cruise. They even have an opportunity to play a song on the ship’s own calliope or just sit down and listen to an old fashioned calliope concert or two…bet you can’t get that anywhere else. The Queen even has what is called a “Riverlorian,” a resident river historian that provides fascinating lectures about the various historical places you’ll visit along the river. And, if you enjoy a dance or two, there’s nightly dancing to swing and big band music.

Aboard the Queen, you will be treated like kings and queens by an all American crew who are focused on one specific charge, provide you with the best and friendliest service imaginable, and make this one of your most memorable cruise vacations ever.

And while you may enjoy some grits for breakfast should you choose, the meals you’ll enjoy while aboard this marvelous vessel are more like fine southern cuisine, than the cafeteria style food you get on other cruise ships. The delightful menus you will experience are designed and orchestrated by master chef Regina Charboneau, and can be enjoyed in a number of unique, period dining venues aboard the Queen. Oh, did we say that you’ll also enjoy complimentary fine wines and beers with your evening meal, and bottled waters and soft drinks at any time.

One of the other really cool features that you may enjoy aboard the Mississippi Queen is the ability to pick a departure date based on a cruise “theme.” While some cruise lines offer one or two, the queen offers a theme on almost every departure throughout the year. We don’t have room to mention them all, but consider; Lincoln and the Civil War, American Hootenanny, Fall Foliage, Thanksgiving, Southern Culture, Southern Gardens, Baseball Legends and the list goes on and on.

There is still time to experience the Mississippi this year. Limited space is available on a number of fall cruises including an extraordinary Old Fashioned Holiday Christmas Cruise. There are many other fall and holiday season cruises where limited space is still available.
