queen-of-the-mississippiAmerican Cruise Lines made its mark by bringing top-of-the-line luxury to small-ship cruising. The company’s ships offer travelers comfort and a low-key atmosphere. American Cruise Lines specializes in exploring rivers and inland waterways in the U.S.

Guests aboard the company’s small ships take in views of the best in American history, culture and nature. Common areas such as lounges and decks give travelers the chance to meet new friends and enjoy spending time with the crew.

In anticipation of the new year’s cruising season, American Cruise Lines is introducing two ships to its lineup. These ships are being renamed, revamped and moved to new routes.

American Pride

American Pride, formerly the Queen of the Mississippi, brings a touch of elegance to the world of cruising. While this ship formerly traversed the Delta depths of the Mississippi, she is now transforming into the most graceful ship on the Columbia River.

The American Pride has room for 150 guests. Rooms are as large as 600 square feet and most include a private balcony. You’ll journey along the Columbia in style and comfort aboard this classic paddleboat. She travels up and down the river, to the most renowned areas in the Pacific Northwest.

A New Name for The American Eagle

What will the Mississippi be like without its Queen? Luckily, cruisers will not have to find out. The American Eagle will remain on its Mississippi waters, but will be renamed – you guessed it – The Queen of the Mississippi, bringing seven rooms and three luxury lounges to travelers to the New Orleans area.

The ship has everything a discriminating traveler could ask for. The main deck is spacious and grand, while the Magnolia Lounge is the ideal spot for an intimate dinner or drink. A putting green and sundeck offer cruisers the perfect opportunity for outdoor fun.
