American Queen Steamboat Company

(formerly Great American Steamboat Company)

American Queen Steamboat Company offers overnight cruises of the Mississippi River and its tributaries on board an authentic paddlewheel steamboat. Each itinerary brings Mark Twain's America to life, from the vibrant cities of St. Louis and St. Paul to the southern charm of Natchez and Vicksburg.

The American Queen -- a genteel, floating antebellum mansion -- is your home while cruising the Mississippi, Ohio and Tennessee rivers. The atmosphere on board is casual, and this well-appointed steamboat exudes Americana, 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 towns and cities along these fabled rivers. All journeys feature daily lectures from an onboard river historian, while special theme voyages explore topics as varied as the Civil War, fall colors and the music of the 1950s and 1960s.
