First of all, this new ship is amazing, the decor is sophisticated. I love the plants added to the upper sun deck area. This is my fifth ACL cruise. You won't find a friendlier group of passengers and crew. If you haven't taken the small ship experience you are missing out. You meet people from all over the US. The rooms are spacious with a full size bathroom. The food had been great. I am ...

My husband and I were thrilled to book one of the American Melody's first river cruises as it debuted on the Mississippi! It exceeded our expectations! The ship is beautifully appointed and when we relaxed on the 4th floor outside deck we could almost imagine we were on our own private yacht...with a staff to guest ratio of approximately 2 to 1 we were guaranteed to have phenomenal service! ...

New, comfortable ship, Great staff. Informative lectures, interesting excursions, and wonderful food. All inclusive makes each day easy to manage. Large stateroom, balcony large enough for two chairs and a table, walk in shower. Small lounge on each of the four floors for relaxation, card playing, puzzle working, computering (complete with printer). Quiet, swift elevator. All areas clean, and kept ...

NO INTERNET the Whole Cruise, Good Otherwise

NO INTERNET! You will have NO Internet the entire cruise. Make a note of that. And since you are out in the middle of a river, you will unlikely be able to get enough data on your cell network to make a difference. So, have everything you would need off of the Internet before you cruise. American Queen Voyages offers no help or assistance with this. And, the Purser's Desk is of no help for this or ...

We had been on this lines American countess in the northwest 2 years ago and had a wonderful time. With all of the Covid precautions we felt very comfortable. The ship was lovely, but the trip began with a mechanical problem that held us over in New Orleans for an extra day. Being experienced cruisers we did not find this upsetting, besides, an extra day in New Orleans is a bonus. I do have to ...

We accompanied another couple who had chosen this cruise from Memphis to New Orleans. The weekend before our cruise, New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Ida. We called the Monday before our embarkation to find out if the cruise was still on, and if our 2 night extension in New Orleans was still going to happen. We didn't get any answers until late in the afternoon the day before we were due to ...

American Queen Steamboat Company has poor customer service from main office. Review of Mississippi River

The American Queen Steamboat Company needs to improve customer service from the company office. The experience on the American Duchess was very good and the crew went out of their way to accommodate. However, the corporate office did not care about their customers concerns about taking the cruise under these conditions and promises made by company representative were not followed up on. We had to ...

We were the only passengers from New Orleans on the cruise up the Mississippi. Even though we had to get to Jackson MS instead of being picked up in New Orleans (hurricane Ida got there first) the trip was exceptional in all respects. American decided to make all excursions (except Graceland and one other) no cost a nice gesture given the mess in getting everyone to the boat. The 21 days it ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have long had a desire to take a Mississippi river cruise its entire length, from Minneaolis to New Orleans. After a couple of outstanding river cruises in Europe, we were excited to try something in our home country. Cruises that travel the entire rivers are rare, most are sold as seven day/half river cruise. So we booked this based on research and itinerary. We do wish that later cruises were ...

Beautiful ship

The American Countess is a beautiful clean new ship. The ship has large windows in the library and card rooms to watch the river, and lots of chairs on decks. I went down the Mississippi from Memphis to New Orleans. I have some foot problems and the company provide a golf cart at every landing to take people from the ship to the excursion bus, so I availed myself of that service. I loved every ...
