Meals there feature favorite main dishes, such as roast prime rib alongside irresistible sides – roasted new potatoes, classic mac-and-cheese and fresh salads.

Entertainment

Entertainment on the American Queen is one-of-a-kind. Stunning live performances are scheduled each night in the two-story Grand Saloon, where you might be taken back to the roaring 20’s with a big band set, or maybe a more theatrical show, featuring Broadway’s biggest hits. And be sure to bring your dancin’ shoes to the Engine Room Bar to enjoy a live set by our talented musicians.

Enrichment

Learn more about the region in which you are traveling with a number of enrichment programs we offer. See for yourself the highlights of each port that we visit on one of our guided Hop-On Hop-Off shore excursions, or elect to take part in one of our expertly designed premium experiences. And our onboard historians – we like to call them Riverlorians – provide interesting lectures on the history and culture that surrounds you as you roll down the river.

Relaxation

The rhythm of the river is slow as a southern drawl that invites us all to take a deep breath and enjoy the simple moments. Take in the sunrise with a cup of coffee as you sit on the white rocking chairs of the Front Porch of America, or have a drink at the River Grill as you watch the paddlewheel turn and listen to the sound of the calliope. Or admire the rich mahogany furniture of the Mark Twain Gallery as the space invites you grab a freshly baked cookie and curl up with a good book.
