Ship Facts: American Queen Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Hometown USA

We recently took the American Queen Steamboat from New Orleans to Memphis.
We loved everything about it: the crew, the ports, the food, the entertainment, the accommodations.

The American crew was very friendly and professional. They were there to serve our needs.
The ports were great as they did not feature the usual t-shirt tourist shops,, instead a local guide introduced you to their hometown.The hop on hop off bus, which is included in the cruise price, gave you an overview of the area and allowed you to tour the places you wanted. You could do as much or as little as you liked.

My favorite was St Francisville. Small town USA. Kids with lemonade stand raising money for the Wounded Warriors touched my heart.

The food was good and featured regional items to try. Everything was freshly prepared.
The entertainment was exceptional. The on-board entertainers and 6-piece Orchestra also presented professional shows. Our favorite was USO Victory Canteen Show. Special guests The Juggernaut Jug Band was our favorite, but we also enjoyed Mr. Banjo-Mike Gentry, who had us singing along.

There were 4 couples in our group and we had rooms side by side on the Texas Deck (3). We liked sitting on the deck outside our room and visiting with the other passengers who passed by on the way to the Front Porch Cafe.

Getting on and off the boat was not a problem.
