American Queen Steamboat Company ... Cruise Through U.S. History

Luxury Steamship Sailings & Themed Tours on America's Rivers

American history and culture meet luxury river cruising with American Queen Steamboat Company and Cheaptickets Cruises. Sail aboard an authentic steam-powered vessel along the waterways of the U.S., including trademark Mississippi River cruises. With a personalized small ship atmosphere and included shore excursions in every port, there is no better way to experience these iconic rivers and their surroundings.

Board the American Queen – the world's largest riverboat – and cruise the Old South or the Heartland. Find southern tradition on a lower Mississippi River cruise and view the elegant plantations and moving Civil War memorials between New Orleans and Memphis. Embark on an upper Mississippi River cruise to visit the cities of St. Louis, Minneapolis and more, and see why Mark Twain was inspired to tell tales capturing the charm and beauty of this region. An Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland rivers cruise showcases the area's wild nature and small riverside towns. Visit landmarks like the Grand Ole Opry and Churchill Downs.

Or, set sail aboard the American Empress, with its classic elegance and Gold Rush-era décor, to explore the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest along the Columbia and Snake Rivers region. Discover the legendary trail of Lewis and Clark, taking in the pristine mountains and canyons of Oregon and sampling the fruits of Washington's wine country. You'll also have a chance to visit Portland or Vancouver.

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

Small passenger counts and a friendly, knowledgeable staff allow for an enjoyable experience. Your cruise includes onboard fine dining – inspired by your surroundings - plus amenities like a gym and spa, as well as award-winning entertainment including live performances, lectures, regional music and nightly dancing. Your room features modern comforts, private bath and accents inspired by the fleets' local history.
