American Queen Voyages has a number of themed river itineraries, each offering thoughtful and authentic encounters. Sample flavors of the Pacific Northwest on wine cruises or visit special holiday markets featuring local artisans on Holidays on the River. There are also American Culinary Experience sailings that highlight signature dishes from local dining venues and offer onboard cooking demonstrations and port explorations with regional chefs.
The company's river vessels resemble classic 19th-century paddlewheelers with all the comforts of contemporary cruising. The American Queen is the largest steamboat operating overnight cruises on the Mississippi River and its tributaries. It serves as the company's flagship and features a beautiful steam calliope on board.
The line's newest paddlewheeler, the American Countess, debuted last year. It features a sleek, contemporary design and plenty of open space for guest gatherings, especially the portside bar, which offers expansive panoramic views.
Rounding out the collection of paddlewheelers are the American Duchess, a boutique-style riverboat that features four two-story loft suites, and the American Empress, which explores the picturesque Columbia and Snake rivers and houses a unique collection of Native American art. The American Empress is the largest overnight riverboat west of the Mississippi.
In addition to river cruises, American Queen Voyages also operates small-ship coastal cruises and expedition sailings in North America. These ships visit inland harbors, secluded bays and charming ports in destinations like the Great Lakes, Eastern Canada and New England, the southeastern United States and Alaska.
