Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: North America River

there was a credit of $800.00 from a previous sailing with the American Queen Steamboat company.

We wanted to try the American Queen - the biggest of the 3 ships in the American Steamboat co.

We were waiting for the last minute deal , we found this cruise in a very short notice of departure.

the ship was built in 1995 - a paddle wheeler, the steamboat built back to the Victorian history of the 1900 -including the furniture in the cabin, the theatre, dining room, lounges.

entertainment -done by the ship's own members -dancers & singers, world-class musicians - organized by the Steamboat Syncopators -playing trumpet ,bass, drums ,.piano,saxophone,clarinet , flute & trombone. and also outside guests performance - Dante Vaudeville -magic show,Lainie Gulliksen -Siren Songs celebrating the Sirens of Broadway,Pop, & Opera , also the ship's own musician entertainers

During the day there were River Chat ,Movie Matinee ,Bingo

dinner - on the J.M. White Dining Room -we were on the 5.15pm early seating

food was good

service were great

there was a land tour -on the ship's Hop on Hop Off busesto visit many Plantation , resorts ,museum churches.

there was hardly any children
