Welcome to the American Duchess™!

We are thrilled to introduce the newest edition to our fleet, the American Duchess. She is the first all-suite paddlewheeler on U.S. Rivers, a floating, intimate masterpiece that can carry up to 166 guests through America's heartland. The paddlewheeler is being created from a 1995 hull and completely reconstructed to become one of the most luxurious river cruising vessels in the country, featuring single-seating main dining and entertainment venues, soaring ceilings, and all of the amenities that guests have come to expect from the American Queen Steamboat Company cruise line.
