Inspired by the elegance of traditional river cruising, the American Queen Steamboat Company takes passengers on sophisticated journeys through the heart of the United States.

Their inclusive itineraries encompass shore excursions, on board entertainment and fabulous facilities, plus more! The American Queen Steamboat Company offers river cruises on its two steamboats through areas such as the Upper Mississippi River, Lower Mississippi river, Ohio and Tennessee Rivers, and Columbia and Snake Rivers.

Kids

The nature of American Queen Steamboat cruises lends itself towards a more mature audience. With a lack of children’s facilities and youth-oriented programs, this cruise line may not be suitable for younger guests.

Dining

The American Queen and American Empress boast award-winning culinary teams who utilise each unique region’s regional ingredients to create fresh, delicious dishes for you to enjoy three times a day. Maybe you’ll choose to start the day with breakfast in bed, or visit the dining room to enjoy a menu filled with classic favourites. Lunch is then the perfect time to check out the alternative dining venue – the Front Porch Café on the American Queen and the River Grill and Bar on the American Empress – for a casual al fresco lunch as the stunning scenery passes by. Of course, you must then try the five-course dinner at the ship’s main dining room. The dishes have been crafted to reflect the culinary influences of the region you’re visiting, so you can expect to find Southern classics in the J.M. White Dining Room on the American Queen. Meanwhile, the Astoria Dining Room on the American Empress features elaborate décor in homage to the Pacific Northwest. This is complemented by local specialties on the menu, such as a delectable Angus beef short rib accompanied by Potandon Farms potatoes and caramelised Pasco onions.

Activities & Entertainment

The two American Queen Steamboats boast large show lounges for nightly entertainment. Be delighted, amused, and inspired by the talented cast who take centre stage every evening and perform a variety of revues from energetic musical numbers to opulent cabaret shows. Afterwards, you can unwind and grab a nightcap at one of the other lounges on board and sway along as the night drifts away to the tunes of jazz, blues, ragtime, or piano. American Queen Steamboat Company is famous for its focus on history, so cruises often feature guest historians who will provide expert insight into the culture and history of your destination. It’s also worth noting that the company offers special cruises which revolve around themes such as Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
