“We enjoyed our trip, and have been going on for days about all of the amenities, great food and entertainment that your boat provided. We are in the midst of planning another trip soon.”

-Robin P.


“As a totally blind person traveling independently, I had certain specific needs, and my American Queen Steamboat Company cruise agent, Tania, answered my questions and put my mind at ease. She did everything possible to ensure smooth travel for me and my service dog, Leo. … I want to express my appreciation to everyone on the American Queen who went out of their way … to make my cruise an exceptional, memorable experience.”

-Linda M.


“I wanted to take the time to email you and let you know what a truly fabulous holiday our mum and dad had on board the American Queen. … They both had an incredible time, and described how everything on board was first-class, and all the staff were so friendly, attentive and in general just great people! … Sending the most heartfelt, sincere, huge thank-you to everyone involved – from us all.”

-Rebecca P.


“Our experience on your boat FAR EXCEEDED anything we imagined. You all have a terrific business. My sisters and I could find nothing – nothing – that we could even begin to see as a shortcoming on your part. The staff were top-notch, the musicians were great and those who waited on tables were professional. Great attitudes. … Upon disembarking, my sisters and I were asking, ‘When can we do this again?!’”

-Doug W.


“Thank you to the whole crew, who cared for and entertained the passengers and kept the vessel clean and moving. A special thank-you to Richard, for his personal service and sharing his talent making towel animals.”

-Ron and Virginia B.


“This was my third cruise with American Queen Steamboat Company, and I loved every one. … I Would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone wanting to take a river cruise in the United States.”

-Charles P.


“My wife and I were passengers on the American Empress, and during that week I was the beneficiary of exemplary service from the head chef. I am subject to certain dietary restrictions. … every night during the week, regardless of which dining room we ate in, the chef had a tasty and varied dinner for me. Moreover, and very important, it was all done willingly, graciously and pleasantly. His service and attitude were exemplary, and I have been able to tell all my friends about it.”

-Ron and Virginia B.


“…(A) crew member tracked us down and said there was a kids’ science museum at an upcoming port of call that my 3-year-old granddaughter might enjoy. That’s going way beyond the call of duty.”
