America’s heartland will again be the home of two riverboats from two different cruise lines this year. American Cruise Line and The Great America Steamboat Company will offer 3 to 10 day voyages on the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennesee and Cumberland Rivers.
The Queen is back! The American Queen (formerly of Delta Queen Steamboat) will enter service in April of this year under the flag of The Great America Steamboat Company. The American Queen, the larger of the two paddle wheelers, can accommodate 436 guests. Included in the voyage fare is a luxury one night hotel stay and transfers, select shore excursions and complimentary wine and beer with dinner.
American Cruise Line’s Queen of the Mississippi will be the first authentic overnight paddle wheeler built for the Mississippi in the last twenty years. She will enter service this August. Queen of the Mississippi will have the largest staterooms ranging from 300 to 600 square feet with 85% of those having private balconies with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors. She will offer six spacious lounges, American cuisine from the regions you travel. The Queen of the Mississippi will accommodate 150 guests with an all American crew. Complimentary cocktails, wine and beer with lunch and dinner are included along with daily high tea!
Both of these offer great itineraries to the heartland of America. Now is the time to see the great heartland of America on one of these fine paddle wheelers.
