Queen of the Mississippi Overview

American Cruise Line's paddlewheel riverboat Queen of the Mississippi combines modern amenities with design elements reminiscent of the days when steamboat paddlewheelers plied the Mississippi River in the early 19th century.

The 150-passenger Queen of the Mississippi offers larger than average staterooms, ranging from 300 to 600 square feet, with 60 square foot balconies. Amenities include floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading onto the balconies, gourmet coffees and breakfast room service. The ship began life in 2015 as American Eagle, taking on its new name in 2016 (the line's original Queen of the Mississippi now lives life as American Pride in the Pacific Northwest). 

There are seven public lounges, ranging from the large Magnolia Lounge -- where complimentary cocktails are served each night before dinner -- to the cozy Mark Twain Library and Chart Room. The main dining room, adorned with chandeliers, is open seating and accommodates all guests in one sitting. Complimentary beer and wine are served with lunch and dinner and free soda and water is available throughout the day. Light refreshments are also available in the Sky Lounge on the top deck.

Other facilities include elevators to all decks, outdoor exercise area and putting green, guest laundry and complimentary WiFi. The Queen of the Mississippi will offer various week-long itineraries on the Mississippi from March through December.

We wanted to stay in the US this year for vacation and since we had not visited the states where the ship docked, we felt this would be a good fit. We are also interested in the Civil War and we thought that would make the cruise more ... Read more
