American Queen Steamboat Company ... Discover America's Rivers

Luxury Cruises along Legendary U.S. Waterways with United Cruises

Embark on an exploration of American history aboard a luxury river cruise with American Queen Steamboat Company and United Cruises. From an authentic steam-powered vessel, you'll sail the legendary rivers of the U.S.: the Mississippi River, Columbia River and more. With a personalized small ship atmosphere and included shore excursions in every port, there is no better way to experience these iconic river regions.

Mississippi River: These trademark cruises aboard the American Queen – the world's largest riverboat – will take you back in time. Experience southern tradition on the lower Mississippi River, viewing plantations, Civil War memorials and blues venues between New Orleans and Memphis. Or, cruise the upper Mississippi River and see the storied land of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, visiting the cities of St. Louis, Minneapolis and more.

Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland rivers: From St. Louis to Cincinnati, these sailings showcase the deep wilderness, quaint river towns, and national landmarks – the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and Kentucky's Churchill Downs – of America's Heartland.

Columbia and Snake rivers: Set sail aboard the elegant American Empress to discover unrivaled natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest along the trail of Lewis and Clark, taking in the pristine mountains of Oregon and journeying through the heart of Washington's wine country. Plus, add Portland or Vancouver to your travels.

For a more personalized cruise vacation, see American Queen Steamboat Company's themed sailings, choosing from a variety of uniquely American experiences. Themes include Big Band Swing, Christmas Markets, Bourbon, Thanksgiving Festival, Presidents and Politics, and Mark Twain.

Limited passenger numbers and friendly staff allow for a more intimate experience. As you cruise, enjoy fine dining – inspired by your regional surroundings - plus amenities like a gym and spa, and award-winning entertainment including live performances, lectures, regional music and nightly dancing. Staterooms feature modern comforts, private bath and décor inspired by the fleets' local history.
