Boat Highlights

DINING
Inspired by America’s heartland and our Southern heritage, our menus showcase the varied cultural and culinary influences of our nation. In the elegant J.M. White dining room, any meal will keep you savoring the memory of the flavors and sharing your excitement for our excellent service – even after you leave the boat. If you are looking for a more casual atmosphere, the Front Porch Café is for you. Meals there feature favorite main dishes, such as roast prime rib alongside irresistible sides – roasted new potatoes, classic mac-and-cheese and fresh salads.

ENTERTAINMENT
Entertainment on the American Queen is one-of-a-kind. Stunning live performances are scheduled each night in the two-story Grand Saloon, where you might be taken back to the roaring 20’s with a big band set, or maybe a more theatrical show, featuring Broadway’s biggest hits. And be sure to bring your dancin’ shoes to the Engine Room Bar to enjoy a live set by our talented musicians.

ENRICHMENT
Learn more about the region in which you are traveling with a number of enrichment programs we offer. See for yourself the highlights of each port that we visit on one of our guided Hop-On Hop-Off shore excursions, or elect to take part in one of our expertly designed premium experiences. And our onboard historians – we like to call them Riverlorians – provide interesting lectures on the history and culture that surrounds you as you roll down the river.

RELAXATION
The rhythm of the river is slow as a southern drawl that invites us all to take a deep breath and enjoy the simple moments. Take in the sunrise with a cup of coffee as you sit on the white rocking chairs of the Front Porch of America, or have a drink at the River Grill as you watch the paddlewheel turn and listen to the sound of the calliope. Or admire the rich mahogany furniture of the Mark Twain Gallery as the space invites you grab a freshly baked cookie and curl up with a good book.

About American Queen Voyages
The mighty rivers of the United States of America once served as the great highways of early exploration and inspired dreams of discovery. Today, American Queen Voyages re-creates the same sense of wonder, excitement and inspirations with all the convenience and comfort of modern luxury aboard the most elegant riverboats in the world, the American Queen,® American Empress,® American Duchess™ and American Countess™.

At American Queen Voyages we are both proud and honored to share the dream of American river cruising and as such we maintain a commitment to excellence that far exceeds expectations.

All of this is accentuated with pre-cruise deluxe hotel stays, remarkable shore excursions included in every port of call and a wealth of complimentary onboard amenities.

As river bends unspool, the natural splendor comes alive along the dramatic riverbanks and bluffs of this glacial valley. Much like Mark Twain would have experienced on his many trips along the river, you'll be captivated by the cultures you discover and bounty that awaits.
