Love American Queen Steamboat Company and the American Queen Steamboat. Cruised many times with this company and it remains our favorite. The American Queen is a classic riverboat giving you the feel of the old steamboat days, but with all the conveniences of a modern cruise ship. The boat has a elegant theme with a casual, easy going and relaxed atmosphere. The cabins are comfortable with ample storage. The front porch cafe (buffet) and the formal dining room are open at all meal times. At breakfast and lunch, the dining room offers menu service and an extensive buffet. The food quality and selection is wonderful. Nightly entertainment in the Grand Saloon is excellent and the talent of the singers and the band is amazing. The shows on board the Queen rival if not exceed any we have seen on any cruise. The daily riverlorian talks are interesting and educational about the history of America, the American Rivers, riverboats and navigation. The service from the crew to the stateroom attendants to the dining room waiters is awesome. All are friendly, pleasant and welcoming. Excursions with the company HOHO buses is a huge plus. You can schedule when you want to leave the boat and tour aboard the narrated bus, get off at the points of interests and return at your convenience. Several buses drive the daily HOHO route, so your wait for the next bus is no more that 10-15 minutes. Very east and a good way to see each port. Another big plus to cruising with the American Queen Steamboat Company is that you are traveling in America out of American ports, seeing historic American river towns, interacting with Americans and can easily return home if an emergency arises. Cruising with AQSC is our favorite way to travel and we always look forward to our next trip with them.

Cabin Review

Loved this cabin. There is a door opening to the interior hallway and one opening to the open deck.
