Why Go on an American River Cruise? 4 Reasons

Looking for the perfect American river cruise? Experience the all new American Duchess all-suite vessel

american river cruiseHave you been daydreaming about booking passage on an American river cruise, but aren’t sure if this is the right mode of travel for you? Well, thanks to the American Queen Steamboat Company, cruisers can enjoy the unique and memorable experience of river cruising right here in the United States. And, a luxurious and one-of-a-kind experience awaits you thanks to the company’s all new vessel, the American Duchess.

The American Duchess stands apart from other US-based river cruise vessels, as it is the first all-suite ship to ever sail on the Mississippi River. This stunning vessel can accommodate 166 guests in a wide variety of suites that range from 180 to 550 square feet. The 550 square foot suite, also known as the Loft, is a two-story masterpiece that features a full bathroom, lounge and dining area on the first level, and a semi private loft/second level that is comprised of a stunning bedroom, full bathroom and spacious closet area. Another distinctive feature of the Amer ican Duchess is the Inside Suites available, which although do not feature river views, are quite roomy in size.

In addition to spacious lodging, the American Duchess offers her guests a long list of other reasons to travel on an American river cruise. Here are a few of our favorite:

  2. This luxurious river cruise boat will feature two distinctive and elegant dining options, The Grill and the Grand Dining Room. Both will blend creative and distinct local flavors with longstanding culinary traditions.
  3. The American Duchess will travel new itineraries that include the cities of Chicago and Nashville.
  4. Guests can book passage on the American Duchess now for a Nashville Holiday itinerary that combines the best the South has to offer with the excitement and magic of the holidays.

The newest edition to the American Queen Steamboat Company, the American Duchess, is being crafted from a 1995 hull and redesigned to be one of the most opulent river cruise vessels in the United States. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy numerous entertainment venues, lavish décor, and luxury amenities that are synonymous with the American Queen Steamboat Company name.
