American Queen Steamboat Company

American Queen Steamboat Company offers overnight cruises of the Mississippi River and its tributaries, along with sailings on the Columbia River in the Pacific Northwest, aboard authentic paddle-wheel steamboats. The atmosphere on board is casual, and the ship decor exudes Americana, with gingerbread trim and lacy filigree adorning the decks.
