For those of you who want to keep your family and friends updated on your cruise activities, good news: the American Queen just installed a new satellite ball! Honestly, I don’t know what that means, other than faster internet speeds onboard the ship! There’s also more in-room entertainment options, although I really don’t know how much time you want to spend in your rooms.

Other upgrades include a marble and granite entryway to the J.M. White Dining Room, the 24-hour Front Porch Cafe, mahogany shutters to all stateroom French doors, and new artwork, wallpaper and carpeting.


The American Queen is definitely ready for her second year back on the river. Have you reserved your room yet? 800-578-1479
