MEET THE AMERICAN QUEEN®

The largest steamboat ever built, the grand American Queen is a gracious and elegant triumph of American ingenuity. Our flagship paddlewheeler is a gentle soul packaged within the ornate detailing that embellishes her exterior. Any traveler who chooses to cruise on this iconic riverboat will soon find that her steady heart beats to the rhythm of music that resounds within her walls. Embark on a river cruise on the American Queen, the wondrous steamboat that introduces her guests to the waters that she calls home – the great rivers that have sustained towns, wildlife and memories throughout history.
