American Queen Steamboat Company ... Cruise America's Rivers

Authentic Steamship Vacations on the Mississippi River and More

Immerse yourself in American history aboard a unique luxury river cruise with American Queen Steamboat Company and Priceline Cruises. The fleet's authentic steam-powered vessels paddle the legendary waterways of the United States, from the Old South to the Pacific Northwest, with included shore excursions in every port.

Take a step back in time on a trademark Mississippi River cruise. Experience southern tradition on a lower Mississippi River sailing and take in the elegant plantations and Civil War battlefields between New Orleans and Memphis. Cruise the upper Mississippi River region and see the charming towns and countryside of America's Heartland that inspired Mark Twain, visiting the cities of St. Louis, Minneapolis and more.

Explore the path taken to conquer the West on a riverboat tour of the Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland rivers, through Bluegrass Country and beautiful wilderness. Visit iconic landmarks like the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. Or, discover unrivaled natural beauty of the Columbia and Snake rivers region, taking in the mountains and canyons of Oregon and journeying through the heart of Washington's wine country.

Plus, you can personalize your vacation with a themed river cruise, choosing from a variety of quintessentially American experiences. Themes include Big Band Swing, Christmas Markets, Bourbon, Antebellum South, Fourth of July Celebration, and Elvis.

American Queen Steamboat Company combines the customized service and limited passenger count of small ship cruising with the amenities and services of a big cruise line aboard its two vessels, the American Queen – the world's largest riverboat – and the American Empress. As you cruise, enjoy onboard entertainment such as history lectures and live music. American Queen Steamboat Company's modern comforts and accommodations include multiple dining options, complimentary beverages, spa, pool, gym, and more.
