Explore the American heartland on an authentic Mississippi river boat!
American Queen Steamboat Company

American Queen Steamboat Company is a one-of-a-kind river cruise line offering historic voyages in the American heartland. Launched on the Mississippi River in 2012, the company offers nostalgic, all-inclusive river cruises on authentic American steamships. Sail past the picturesque towns along the Mississippi that inspired such classics as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, or take in the scenic beauty of the mighty Columbia. Each tour has a strong historic element, from Mark Twin impersonators to Lewis and Clark-inspired excursions. Nature lovers and history lovers alike will delight in the experiences to be had on a relaxing cruise along a U.S. river.

Although no longer powered by steam, the American Queen river boats are built like old-fashioned steamships, complete with paddle wheels and smokestacks. Victorian-era furnishings and costumed crew members complete the illusion that you've stepped back in time, and real historical artifacts give the décor an authentic touch. Best of all, the famed onboard lecturers, called "Riverlorians," provide informative and entertaining commentary throughout the journey.
