Review for a North America River Cruise on American Queen

We had originally booked this cruise pre Covid (2019) with our American friends. Although we are Australians this was to be our sixth boat cruise which was deferred until Australian's travel restrictions were lifted. As can be assumed we had very high expectations that we would enjoy the cruise, as we had previously done on the American Queen. Sadly, this was not to be. I've purposely left writing ...

I have always wanted to cruise on the US rivers, and I also wanted to experience the largest riverboat, as well as steam-powered, so the American Queen was my obvious choice. Eventually, I hope to cover all the US rivers that offer overnight cruises. We flew in to St. Louis, and were lodged at the Hilton at the Ballpark, where we checked in, and completed a Covid test. We toured St. Louis ...

We so enjoyed our “Civil War” cruise on the Duchess that we booked this trip “In the Footsteps of Mark Twain”. Two days before departure we were told due to the high waters the trip was changed -every port was different except the starting point of St Louis. The Queen is much larger and the room we had chosen #502 was in the front of the ship-nice & roomy but so noisy we could not stay. The ...

An American Dream come true on American Queen

This was probably the best cruise experience my wife and I ever had in over 16 years of cruising on a variety of cruise lines. The all-American crew provided first class service and did put some meaning to the idea of joining the AQSC family. American Queen was a true elegant Southern Belle affording us an experience closeted in sophisticated Southern Charm with true superior service. The ...

Wonderful Way to See the Mississippi River

First U.S. river cruise and this was absolutely delightful. The staterooms and the entire boat was furnished in antique furniture combined with modern appointments. The bathrooms are full hotel size and the staterooms are larger than all but suites on ocean cruises. Al all-american crew were friendly from the top to the bottom. Everyone pulled double duty on this, the largest paddle-wheeler ...

The Mark Twain Experience - or Gilligan's Island?

This was our second AQSC cruise. We chose the "Mark Twain Experience" on the American Queen from St. Louis to Minneapolis with stops in between along the Upper Mississippi. Unfortunately, we received an email the night before our flight that there will be a "slight deviation" in the itinerary due to high water in the upper Mississippi and the boat's inability to pass under those bridges. We had ...

Missed Two Ports and Cold Inside

Enjoyed our previous Lower Mississippi and Columbia River cruises. Should have a good time and cultural experience with this Upper Mississippi cruise. We especially enjoyed the carefree and relaxing hop on and hop off excursions. Unfortunately, due to the weather conditions, we were not able to land in two ports. This is 40% of the hop on and hop off's. The ship accommodation was ...

One of the Best Things I've Ever Done!

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

My river cruise on the American Queen was one of the best things I've ever done and that's saying a lot after a 35-year airline career! A Mississippi River paddlewheeler has been on my bucket list since the Delta Queen and Mississippi Queen (predecessors to the American Queen) had been plying the same waters. The pre-departure day in St. Louis afforded me the opportunity to go up in the Gateway ...

This was my fourth cruise on American Queen in 15 months, all different itineraries. I am usually an Ocean and Expedition cruiser, but I have totally fallen in love with American Queen. Unlike most river cruise ships, that have the charm of airport hotels, AQ is the real McCoy. It's a total immersion experience in River and Southern culture. As you board, you are welcomed with a Dixieland Jazz ...

American Queen theme cruises are pure Americana!

I sailed on the first Mark Twain theme cruise on the American Queen August 23rd. I suffer from vertigo which becomes massively worse if I lie down and turn my head. This means that I must sleep sitting up, usually in a recliner. I had requested this, but was very nervous that the company might not have chair that worked well for me. When I boarded the boat and the staff came with a recliner ...
