American Queen Voyages launches new shorter sailings for 2024

FORT LAUDERDALE — American Queen Voyages (AQV) has announced new five- and six-day itineraries launching in February 2024.

While AQV’s cruises are traditionally nine days or longer, these shorter voyages on board the contemporary riverboat American Countess feature a condensed time frame while still highlighting the beauty and rich history of the Lower Mississippi.

“We are delighted to offer our guests the opportunity to visit some of their favourite destinations while giving them greater flexibility in their travel plans,” said Cindy D’Aoust, president, American Queen Voyages. “For new cruisers, our shorter voyages provide an introduction to river cruising, and gives them a taste of all there is to explore without having to take too much time away.”

The five- and six-day itineraries are priced from US$2,399 per guest and sail roundtrip from New Orleans and begin on Feb. 17 and Feb. 21, 2024. The American Countess will stop at ports of call along the Lower Mississippi River, including St. Francisville and AQV exclusive port, Nottoway, LA.

Plus, with AQV’s Great Ameri-Cation Sale, guests booking these itineraries can enjoy a free category stateroom or suite upgrade, save up to $4,000 and take advantage of $200 ‘Your Choice’ onboard credit per stateroom.

The new voyages are now available for booking. Go to for more details.
