Itineraries

American Queen cruises the upper and lower Mississippi, as well as the Ohio and Tennessee rivers on five- to 14-night sailings. Cruises depart from New Orleans; Memphis; St. Louis; St. Paul, Minnesota; Cincinnati; Pittsburgh; and Chattanooga, Tennessee, among other places, and themes include Civil War Vacations, Epic Civil War, Springtime on the River, Old-fashioned Holiday Vacations, Southern Culture, Music of the 1950's, Baseball Legends, Blues and Bourbon, and Fall Foliage. The boat is laid up between early January and early February.

Upper Mississippi cruises explore towns shaped by early explorers and American Indians, such as Joliet, Illinois; Red Wing, Minnesota; and Dubuque, Iowa. Lower Mississippi cruises explore what was once the dividing line between warring North and South. Ohio and Tennessee rivers cruises recall the great wilderness through Bluegrass country, once the territory of Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone, the Cherokee and the Chickamauga.

Seasons and holidays are also recognized with themed itineraries. Cruises celebrate Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmastime, Mardi Gras and fall foliage along the Upper Mississippi.

American Empress sail the Columbia and Snake rivers. Eight-day itineraries will take passengers from Portland, Oregon, or Vancouver, Washington, to Clarkston, Washington, or from vice-versa.

Passengers will follow along in the footsteps of explorers Louis and Clark though some of the most scenic areas in the world. Wildlife plays a major part in these cruises; you might see soaring bald eagles or masses of sea lions.

Wine, of course, is also a big part of cruises to the Pacific Northwest, so port stops will include visits to wineries throughout the region.
