Elegant sophistication in America's Deep South
City | History & culture | River cruise
It's the most opulent paddleboat ever built, where antiques, glistening woodwork and lacy filigree come together to recall all the elegance of the American Victorian era. Once on board the American Queen, guests settle in to enjoy full-board gourmet dining, influenced by the unique flavours of the Deep South, and washed down with a superb selection of wine and beer, complimentary with dinner.
There's also a full spread of entertainment, including lectures from the resident historian, a well-stocked library and, best of all, jazz, blues and orchestra-backed cabaret at the Grand Saloon. It’s all served up with grace and warmth from the ship’s all-American staff, as the river scenery drifts by, which you'll take in from either the luxuries of your suite, complete with private balconies, or the open-air delights of the top deck.
