Mary from CA gives this voyage ★★★★★

The people working on the boat. Enjoyed dancing with Chuck, The Dance Captain. Women traveling solo don't often get a chance to dance. Great idea to have Chuck around the dance floor. Stateroom attendant Adam is a treasure.

Food was wonderful. This was my first river boat experience. It was like a big family. My cabin was immaculate and the boat was clean. The servers were friendly and entertaining. The purser was informative. Thank you for the great experience.

The American Queen was very majestic. The public rooms were so comfortable and homey. Our stateroom was like walking back in time, it was roomy, cozy & comfortable. Very relaxing!!!

I was amazed not only with the incredible journey, but I was also amazed with the wonderful crew. Many, like Kris Kelor, went the extra mile to enhance everyone's journey.

Food delicious, greatly improved since last time, though serving staff somewhat stretched. Excursions good. Again we particularly enjoyed the Engine Room Bar, and the visiting artists completely exceeded all expectations. Brilliant!
