On these itineraries, adventure flows like water through the valley, and experience awaits. Navigate rivers, wallow in nostalgia and engage in history. With stillness’ shackles gone, we invite you to experience the world of river cruising like never before. Visit hidden havens of the river, and discover the reason that so many have fallen in love with its gentle spirit.
Spacious luxury awaits aboard the floating masterpiece that is the American Duchess. This boutique-style riverboat offers exquisite dining, beautiful decks and exceptional amenities. Her suites range from 180 to 550 square feet, allowing guests to stay in some of the largest accommodations on the rivers. Unique to the American Duchess are her Loft Suites, which feature two stories enhanced by floor-to-ceiling windows, two full bathrooms, a comfortable dining area, a beautiful lounge with a queen sofa-bed, a private balcony and an upstairs bedroom.
Combining the best of the old and the new, this beautiful lady epitomizes the grace and grandeur that have made cruising on the Mississippi River a cherished American tradition for more than two centuries.
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. The welcome appearance of each of our vessels is richly complemented by a culture of gracious service, elegant decor, rousing entertainment and rewarding enrichment experiences. 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.
