Best trip of our lives! The quality was superb! The staff was of the highest quality as was the food and entertainment. I was shocked by the excellence of everything. From the songs of Michaelyn Obry to Kris who let us off the boat in such a chipper manner every day, there was no hiccup. Everything was fabulous. American Steamboat has a Hop on Hop off bus meet you at each port to ensure you see the sites. I cannot recommend this company enough! THEY ARE OUTSTANDING! They provided a stay at the Sheraton in Memphis that did not have our rooms ready. To apologize, the steamboat company gave us each $150 shipboard credit. They are a class act. There is nothing more pleasant than lying in an air-conditioned stateroom , watching the shoreline float by. This was our first Steamboat, but now we want to do ALL OFF THEM and use American Steamboat! OUTSTANDING! Read Less

On a tour group..was staff tour director for cruise. This cruise was billed, like all American Queens...as a 5 star tour.....food, accommodations, activities. I'm giving it a 3 at best and that's pushing it. Nice enough people on board but lacking in some major areas: abysmal disembarking for guests...Many of whom need special assistance. Just incredulous at how poor a job was done . ..even witnessed as staff watched other clients helped each other on and off ship. Terrible. Food....average at best. Nothing special I could see. Quail, duck, pork lion, ziti ( if you can even believe that!)........typical breakfast fare. Wait staff tries hard... Accommodations...hmmm, depends on what you choose. Single canon tiny...no place to sit down. Activities- marginal. A four game bingo? Mark twain character was washed up and unbelievable. A Mr. Bojangles dance and sing set? really? Shore excursions....simple, uninspired and lacking in depth. For what one pays for this company's tours...hmm, I think I'd suggest waiting to see if the new Viking ship staff can do a better job. The American Queen needs competition and Viking is just the company to step up to the plate. Suggestion: learn to take care of the little things! Read Less
