Mississippi riverboat cruising at its BEST is back!
Columbia & Snake river cruises on the American Queen and the Empress.


Thinking about a Mississippi riverboat cruise conjures up so many 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. 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.

By  the way... Before we tell you more about how enjoyable and rewarding an American Queen cruise will be, we think it is very important to note that ALL American Queen ships are ADA Compliant which means they can welcome almost everyone on board one of their beautiful river ships to enjoy a cruise.

The Queen is the first modern, yet most authentic overnight paddlewheel sailing in America.
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 so wrong. Although from afar she looks just like what you envision, the American Queen is the antithesis of that memory, that long-ago era, and that genre of passenger.

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