American Queen Voyages

Climb aboard an iconic steamboat and explore a slice of American history & nature on our Mississippi, Columbia and Snake River cruises. Offering a unique on-the-river perspective, our voyages create the perfect getaway for nature and history lovers alike. Enjoy our richly appointed paddlewheelers and steamboats that offer beautiful staterooms and suites, restaurants and spacious decks for watching the river sights go by.  

American Queen Voyages offers the most inclusive river cruise experience in North America with pre-cruise hotel stays, wine and beer with dinner, shore excursions in each port and tantalizing, regionally inspired cuisine.  

Experience the historic authenticity of the Mississippi River aboard the celebrated American Queen, the American Duchess or new in 2020 the American Countess and discover America from the indescribable perspective of the river with our variety of Mississippi River Cruises ranging from 5 to 23-days.

The lower region of the Mississippi exposes you to centuries-old shaded oak trees, elegant antebellum plantations and Civil War memorials – it’s like taking a step back in time. The upper region of the Mississippi reveals the inspiration behind Mark Twain’s famed literary classics while acquainting you with storybook American towns, vibrant cities and indigenous wildlife.  

Alternatively, our fourth paddlewheeler, the American Empress, is truly a vessel of exploration; she cruises in different waters to her sisters, the breath-taking Columbia and Snake Rivers. At home in this fascinating destination, the American Empress skilfully takes her guests to unimaginable places throughout the Pacific Northwest, with each port offering an array of experiences that define the region, from coastal Astoria to the high desert in Clarkston.  

An American paddlewheeler river cruise is the perfect getaway for nature lovers and history buffs alike. Join us for an unparalleled journey through authentic America; it is a unique experience unlike anything you have ever encountered!
