Introducing The American Queen

Experience the historic authenticity of the Mississippi River aboard the celebrated American Queen® and discover America from the indescribable perspective of the river. Mississippi River Cruises offer the most inclusive river cruise experience in North America with wine and beer with dinner and tantalizing, regionally-inspired cuisine. 

The lower region of the Mississippi exposes you to centuries-old shaded oak trees, elegant antebellum plantations and Civil War memorials - it's like taking a step back in time. The upper region of the Mississippi reveals the inspiration behind Mark Twain's famed literary classics while acquainting you with storybook American towns, vibrant cities and indigenous wildlife. 



The largest steamboat ever built, the grand American Queen is a gracious and elegant triumph of American ingenuity. Although filled with today’s modern amenities, her rooms and accommodations display all the opulence of the American Victorian era. Glistening woodwork, fresh flowers and antiques adorn her interior spaces. Outside, lacy filigree evokes memories of the many stately riverboats that preceded her and so inspired her designers.
