American Queen Steamboat Company

American Queen Steamboat Company specializes in overnight cruises onboard an authentic paddlewheel steamboat. This is Mark Twain's America, with each itinerary providing an enriching historical experience along one of the country's fabled rivers. From grand cities like St. Louis and St. Paul on the upper Mississippi to southern gems such as Natchez and Vicksburg on the lower portion, American Queen Steamboat Company offers enticing journeys into America's heartland.

The American Queen -- a genteel, floating antebellum mansion -- is your home while on the Mississippi, Ohio and Tennessee rivers. Though the atmosphere onboard is casual, this elegant steamboat features a luxurious Americana flair with fresh flowers, antiques and lacy filigree adorning its halls and decks. Each night, enjoy thrilling showboat-style entertainment or dance to swing, big band or Dixieland jazz music.

Shore excursions by "Steamcoach" explore the many towns and cities along these natural highways. All journeys feature daily lectures from an onboard river historian, while special theme cruises provide an enhanced experience and highlight topics as varied as the Civil War, fall colors and the music of the 1950s and 1960s.

A sailing with American Queen Steamboat Company is a voyage into the history and culture of America, an exploration of the great events and people who made the country what it is.
