American Queen Steamboat Company: US River Cruising

American Queen Steamboat Company sets the standard for cruising on American rivers. Guests can experience the romance of the past in modern comfort on the Mississippi, Ohio, Cumberland, and Tennessee Rivers onboard our authentic paddlewheelers: the iconic and opulent flagship American Queen or the luxurious new boutique paddlewheeler, the American Duchess. Or they may prefer to explore the great Pacific Northwest on the elegant American Empress.

Our all-inclusive cruises offer pre-cruise hotel night prior to embarkation; all meals, including 24-hour room service and alternative dining venues; snacks, specialty coffees, soft drinks, and bottled water throughout the voyage; wine and beer with dinner; and shore excursions in each port of call. Guests also enjoy daily enrichment programs and nightly Broadway-caliber entertainment.

AQSC also provides stellar travel agent support, including Steamboat Academy on-demand training. Steamboat Academy is a comprehensive, on-demand certification program that provides agents with the knowledge to speak confidently about AQSC’s products and destinations. Agents also have many opportunities to increase commission income with trip enhancements such as additional hotel nights, City Stay packages, an Unlimited Beverage package, and premium shore excursions. Agents may also take advantage of marketing support such as customizable promotional flyers and online brochure ordering.
