High Waters Force Mississippi River Cruise Ship to Alter Plans
Courtesy American Queen Steamboat Company (3:45 p.m. EDT) -- High water levels on the upper Mississippi River are forcing itinerary changes for American Queen Steamboat Company's American Queen. The July 5 and July 13 sailings, scheduled to sail between St. Louis and St. Paul, Minnesota, have been affected.

"Sometimes river conditions are outside our control," cruise line president and COO Ted Sykes said. "We recognize the need to cruise on the Ohio River for our first two July 2013 itineraries and will then return to our regularly scheduled itineraries."

The new itineraries will sail between St. Louis and Cincinnati, calling on Chester, Illinois; Cape Girardeau, Missouri; Paducah, Henderson and Louisville, Kentucky; and Madison, Indiana. Also changed is the precruise hotel for the July 12 sailing. It will now be at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza.

Passengers booked on these sailings have the option to rebook a 2013 cruise without penalty or stay on their deviated sailing and receive $500 credits, per stateroom, on future cruises.
