Built in 1995 the American Queen is newly refurbished and has the ambiance of an antebellum mansion, the largest, grandest and most opulent steamboat ever built.
This lady of the river is home to passengers for 3-10 day journeys, the 222 staterooms occupied by Civil War and riverboat enthusiasts who are treated to elegant meals, calliope concerts and entertainment on the only authentic overnight paddlewheel, powered by both paddlewheel and z-drive, a set of diesel-electric propellors on either side of the sternwheel.
