“What a fun, enjoyable trip on the American Queen! Wonderful dining, tours and especially the entertainment (I think it’s even better than on the cruise ships).”
American Queen Steamboat Company
Genuinely American river cruises
The timelessness of America’s inland rivers enables you to discover America in much the same manner as did the original 19th-century steamboat travelers. Perhaps you’ll even unleash your inner Mark Twain on an all-inclusive American Queen Steamboat paddle wheeler cruise. Do you love jazz? Civil War history? The Kentucky Derby? Make your cruise even more meaningful with itineraries focused on a theme or interest.
In terms of sustainability, the American Queen Steamboat Company is reducing its plastic footprint by over 90%, installing hydration stations and using reusable drink-ware. It is also recycling cooking oil and installing food waste compaction and dehydration systems. In 2019 nearly 1,250 gallons of cooking oil was recycled and food waste was reduced from 400 pounds to 25 pounds.
