The American Duchess is an all-suite, boutique-style ship that carries up to 166 guests on U.S. rivers. The vessel was created from a 1995 hull, and while it has the signature red paddle wheel and white “wedding cake” exterior of a classic Mississippi River steamboat, its interior sports a contemporary, upscale look. The Grand Dining Room is complemented by the more casual and cozier River Club & Terrace, which offers covered outdoor seating. Passengers can grab a coffee or snack at Perks, try out the equipment in the exercise room or catch a musical performance or a guest speaker’s presentation in the show lounge.
