American Queen Steamboat Company

River Cruises

The largest steamboat ever built, the grand American Queen is a gracious and elegant triumph of American ingenuity.

American Queen Steamboat Company

Although filled with today's modern amenities, her rooms and accommodations display all the opulence of the American Victorian era. Glistening woodwork, fresh flowers and antiques adorn her interior spaces. Outside, lacy filigree evokes memories of the many stately riverboats that preceded her and so inspired her designers.

Proudly serving as the largest overnight riverboat west of the Mississippi River, the American Empress delivers classic elegance and modern luxury on a grand scale. Boasting a vast collection of some of the finest historical artifacts and artwork of the Native Alaska, Russian, Gold Rush and sternwheeler eras, the corridors of the American Empress hold nearly as much beauty and intrigue as the dramatic scenery unfolding on the river outside.

No matter which ship you sail, these beautiful ladies of the river epitomize the grace and grandeur that has made river cruising a cherished American tradition for more than two centuries.
