American Queen Luxury Steam Boat & Deep South ESCAPE

Unique River Cruise Experience with New Orleans & Memphis Stays

  • Join us on board the stunning American Queen

    The largest steamboat ever built, the grand American Queen is a gracious and elegant triumph of American ingenuity. Although filled with today’s modern amenities, her rooms and accommodations display all the opulence of the American Victorian era. Glistening woodwork, fresh flowers and antiques adorn her interior spaces. Outside, lacy filigree evokes memories of the many stately riverboats that preceded her and so inspired her designers.

    While on board, you can select a volume from the vast collection in the Mark Twain Gallery, the boat’s library. Or enjoy a sing-along in the Main Deck Lounge, and then tap your toes to a lavish show in the two-deck-tall Grand Saloon, the most elegant showplace on the river.

    Combining the best of the old and the new, this beautiful lady of the river epitomizes the grace and grandeur that has made River Cruising a cherished American tradition for more than two centuries. One voyage and you’ll see why.

    Modern amenities and classic luxury combine aboard the American Queen. Offering gracious and elegant steamboat river cruises, climb aboard the American Queen for a memorable journey through U.S. history and nature. Enjoy Victoria opulence with details like scrolling woodwork, fresh flowers and lacy filigree or travel back in time with the words of Mark Twain, from the ship’s collection. Enjoy nightly entertainment aboard our river boat in the Grand Saloon or the Captain's Lounge or stroll up and down the decks admiring the views and scenery during your cruise.
