The mighty rivers of the United States of America once served as the great highways of early exploration and inspired dreams of discovery. Today, the American Queen Steamboat Company® re-creates the same sense of wonder, excitement and inspirations with all the convenience and comfort of modern luxury aboard two of the largest and most elegant riverboats in the world, the American Queen® and the American Empress®. Traveling in the wake of legends, guests are transported to an era of leisurely and romantic travel. At the American Queen Steamboat Company, we are both proud and honored to share the dream of American river cruising and as such we maintain a commitment to excellence that far exceeds expectations.

All of this is accentuated with pre-cruise deluxe hotel stays, remarkable shore excursions included in every port of call and a wealth of complimentary onboard amenities. Each voyage offers unique perspectives on America’s history, culture and landscape that you can’t get anywhere else: up-close, in-depth and unforgettable. Step aboard and delight in the luxurious modern amenities, gracious service and endless authentic experiences that are synonymous with American Queen Steamboat Company river cruising.
