American Queen

With her countless Victorian details and the history she represents, there is nothing like the American Queen afloat today. Built in 1995 with every modern convenience and thoroughly refreshed in 2012, she is modeled after the steamboats of yesteryear with an authentic steam-powered paddlewheel, broad shaded decks and enough filigree, fretwork, antique furniture, stained glass and mahogany paneling to make Mark Twain proud.

The Independence was built in 2010. The size of the ship is larger, enabling the interior areas, including the staterooms and balconies to be even more spacious and deluxe. The Independence is also fully stabilized, with Rolls Royce stabilizers, allowing American Cruise Lines to reach even more fascinating destinations in smooth comfort.

Queen of the Mississippi

The Queen of the Mississippi brings a new high standard to America’s most iconic river. Beneath her gleaming woodwork and brass fixtures is a framework of modern cruise ship technology that provides passengers with the most comfortable vacation imaginable as we cruise the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers from New Orleans to Minneapolis or Cincinnati, OH. The Queen of the Mississippi features the most spacious staterooms in the industry and provides more space per passenger than any other river cruise ship. Attention is paid to every detail and the all-American crew offers carefully personalized service.
