The largest steamboat ever built, the grand American Queen is a gracious and elegant triumph of American ingenuity.

American Queen

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 inspired her designers. While on board, you can select a volume from the vast collection in the Mark Twain Gallery, the boat’s library. Or enjoy a sing-along in the Main Deck Lounge, and then tap your toes to a lavish show in the two-deck-tall Grand Saloon, the most elegant showplace on the river. Combining the best of the old and the new, this beautiful lady of the river epitomizes the grace and grandeur that has made river cruising a cherished American tradition for more than two centuries. One voyage and you’ll see why. Modern amenities and classic luxury combine aboard the American Queen. Offering gracious and elegant steamboat river cruises, climb aboard the American Queen for a memorable journey through U.S. history and nature. Enjoy nightly entertainment in the Grand Saloon or the Captain’s Lounge, or stroll up and down the decks admiring the views and scenery. A journey aboard the America Queen is the ultimate steamboat vacation. American Queen Steamboat Company is strongly committed to preserving the marine environment and continually strives to do our part in keeping America’s waterways cleaner.

J.M. White Dining Room

Your first decision each morning: whether to relax in bed with a cheerful breakfast tray of freshly brewed coffee and piping hot beignets, linger in the elegant dining room, or enjoy the informal atmosphere of an alternate venue. Menu choices are many, including made-to-order omelettes, egg strudel with spinach, tomato and feta, andouille hash with corn cakes, and decadent bananas Foster French toast. The nightly five-course dinner in the American Queen’s elegant J. M. White Dining Room showcases the varied cultural and culinary influences of the American nation. Inspired by the American Heartland and their Southern heritage, each offering is a celebration of flavour. Perhaps you will start with a sweet, golden brown beignet topped with a savoury mushroom cream sauce and perfectly seasoned crawfish tails followed by a tender baby spinach salad tossed with lightly sweetened sour cream-shallot dressing. For the entree, try the wild- harvested Gulf snapper dressed with jumbo shrimp, Creole style tomato sauce and accompanied by steamed jasmine rice. Of course, no meal is complete without dessert and you will not be disappointed with the heavenly confections that are artfully prepared each evening to satisfy your sweet tooth and offer a sweet exclamation to end another perfect day.

The Front Porch Cafe

This alternative dining venue offers the ideal respite for a relaxing, al fresco lunch or dinner, affording idyllic views of the river and passing scenery. You will feast on freshly grilled meats, sumptuous seafood, a medley of vegetables and salads and a supreme selection of desserts. If you are feeling peckish any time of the day or night, the Front Porch Café offers a selection of sandwiches, fresh fruits, popcorn or soft-serve ice cream, while 24-hour room service is just a phone call away.
