Fall Colors Vacations salute nature’s rich palette of reds, oranges and golds as your seamboat traverses the Upper Mississippi, Ohio and Tennessee rivers in autumn. You can shuffle through the leaves during shore excursions and learn from guest naturalists. At dinnertime, you’ll sample the bounties of Heartland America, from pumpkin pie to hot, spiced cider.
Join us for an unforgettable voyage during the inaugural season of the American Queen.
The largest steamboat ever built, the grand American Queen is a gracious and elegant triumph of American ingenuity. Although filled with today’s modern amenities, her rooms and accommodations display all the opulence of the American Victorian era. Glistening woodwork, fresh flowers and antiques adorn her interior spaces. Outside, lacy filigree evokes memories of the many stately river steamers that preceded her and so inspired her designers.
Appointed with the most luxurious amenities, all suites and staterooms feature plush bedding and fine linens, large mirrors, ample storage space, wall-to-wall carpet and a private bathroom with a shower. All accommodations enjoy nightly turn-down service and in-room Starbucks coffee along with complimentary bottled water and fresh fruit.
