Experience the historic authenticity of the Mississippi River aboard the celebrated American Queen® and discover America from the indescribable perspective of the Mississippi River on this 7 night cruise plus a pre-cruise 2-night hotel stay in New Orleans in the Springtime. This is the most inclusive river cruise experience in North America including wine and beer with dinner, shore excursions in each port, tantalizing, regionally-inspired cuisine and Riverlorian Talks about the river, the regions and its colorful history. The lower region of the Mississippi exposes you to centuries-old shaded oak trees, fertile cotton fields, vast sugar cane plantations and Civil War memorials with stops in Natchez, Vicksburg, Greenville, MS and Nottoway Plantation and St. Francisville, LA – it’s like taking a step back in time. Climb aboard an iconic steamboat and explore a slice of American history while acquainting you with the romantic spirit of the antebellum era with pillared mansions, Civil War battlefields and indigenous wildlife. Enjoy the richly appointed American Queen Steamboat that offers beautiful staterooms and suites, restaurants and spacious decks for watching the river sights go by. Enjoy nightly entertainment in the Grand Saloon Theater, modeled after Ford’s Theater in Washington, as well as the Paddlewheel Lounge for lively piano music and dancing nightly to the sounds of the American Queen Orchestra! A relaxing Mississippi river cruise is the perfect getaway for nature lovers and history buffs alike. Join us for an unparalleled journey through authentic America gliding on the river at 15-20 mph; it is a unique experience unlike anything you have ever encountered! You haven’t lived until you’ve seen a sunset reflecting off the Mississippi River or a glorious new sunrise as the fog is lifting off the river!

From the moment you step aboard The Grand American Queen, you’ll enter a world of Epicurean cuisine, impeccable service as well as incredible entertainment. Amidst the atmosphere of an authentic, all American paddlewheel steamboat, you’ll feel as if time has been suspended. As your majestic floating palace gracefully steams out of port, you’ll feel the excitement as the rollicking sounds of the calliope fills the air. Relax as the gentle motion of the paddlewheel soothes your senses. Entertainment from Broadway to Jazz to Big Band is a nightly occurrence. Enjoy the romance of the deck bathed in the soft, silver light of the moon. Greeting the first light of day with a steaming cup of coffee in hand while relaxing in a rocking chair has got to be one of life’s greatest pleasures as the water sparkles like diamonds. Take a voyage back in time and imagine Mark Twain as he pilots his steamboat through this southern region along the Mighty Mississippi. Have you ever longed to raft down a river? We offer you the next best thing and from almost the exact same vantage point, aboard an intimate 436 passenger steamboat cruise of a Lifetime! An All American Crew & American Owned Boat!
