Cruises on the The Queen of the West

See all Cruises

 

QueenWest 2009 American Cruise Lines Ships

The 230-foot Queen is propelled by a three-story-high churning paddlewheel. But unlike earlier paddlewheelers, the Queen of the West doesn’t rely on a steam engine. Instead, it is powered by a revolutionary hydraulic propulsion system that uses environmentally safe biodegradable hydraulic oil. The 45-foot-long bow ramp allows passengers to go ashore anywhere along the river, much as the 19th-century vessels did. Launched in 1995, the Queen of the West is the first overnight passenger sternwheeler to be built and operated in the West in 80 years.

The first brand new overnight sternwheeler built for the Mississippi in nearly 20 years, Queen of the Mississippi will be the grandest ever boasting over sized staterooms larger than those of all former Mississippi riverboats, private balconies and all of the amenities today’s travelers expect.

Watch a video of the Queen of the Mississippi under construction:

 

This new paddlewheeler will recreate the grandeur of past riverboats while possessing the latest safety, environmental and construction technologies. The ship will have the look of a traditional riverboat along with more amenities, a faster speed, and an unmatched level of comfort. Features include six unique lounges, a library, an elegant dining salon, elevator service to all decks, and exceptionally large staterooms.

The Queen of the Mississippi is a historically accurate riverboat carrying only 150 passengers.  Designed to navigate America’s inland waterways and rivers, she will dock in the heart of each port, taking you where larger ships could never go.  Comfortable lounges and large observation decks are the perfect place for guests to relax and enjoy the company of fellow travelers who share their interest in American heritage. Glass enclosed dining salons provide an amazing, panoramic view to passing scenery.  The spacious staterooms feature large opening picture windows and roomy baths; many also have private balconies.
