Overview

About Queen Of The Mississippi

Unlike the old ship, on the new Queen of the Mississippi, the crew quarters are located on Deck 1 (on the old ship are on deck 5) while Deck 5 houses balcony staterooms and suites.

Most cabins (ranging 300-600 ft2) are with private balconies, so passengers can enjoy alfresco in-cabin dining. Traditionally, American Cruise Line serves local food, focusing on Cajun and Creole cuisine.

The new riverboat also features small and large lounges, library, showroom, card room, putting green, complimentary self-service launderette, 3 PC terminals (Internet computers) and free WiFi access.

Travelling the Lower Mississippi is an experience like no other. Our carefully selected onboard experts bring the history and culture of this region to life with award-winning enrichment programs.

The dramatic landscapes of the Upper Mississippi River have long inspired artists, writers, and steamboat passengers.

The echoes of riverboat travelers from a bygone era resound as we travel the full length of the Mighty Mississippi. As ten states glide past your vantage point on the sun deck, admire what has been the subject of numerous works of art and the backdrop for countless American novels.

From the vibrant cultural center of the “Big Easy” to the dramatic landscapes of the Upper Mississippi, experience life as it once was on the western frontier. Our expert guides will take you to the grand southern plantations, stately antebellum houses and Civil War battlefields of the Lower Mississippi. Taste the finest Cajun and Creole and enjoy mouth-watering Memphis BBQ as you travel to the birthplace of Jazz, Blues and Rock–n-Roll.

Cruising up the river, Hometown Americana takes center stage. Relive the adventures of Mark Twain’s time on a trolley ride through Hannibal, his boyhood hometown. Experience the legacy of John Deere in Davenport and the Victorian-era elegance of Dubuque. As we continue north, pasture gives way to forest and the wild life of Minnesota and Wisconsin comes into view.

Just as it was in Mark Twain’s day, every cruise on the Mississippi River is unique due to fluctuating river conditions that can have an impact on our itinerary. The river has a mind of its own and our sailing schedules must adapt to it!
