Louisville to St. Louis | 9-Day Voyages

The American Queen wanders the rivers. On this cruise, it’ll amble down the Ohio, dawdle awhile in the Four-Rivers Area (where the Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers flow together into the Mississippi River), then meander north on the Mississippi. While the riverboat lazily drifts along, you’ll have time and opportunity to explore historic river towns, each with their unique culture and identities.

American Cuisine

Dining is an uniquely American experience aboard the ship. Local ingredients used to create regional delicasies will charm your tastebuds. In addition to the main dining room, there are also an alternative venue for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as 24-hour room service for your convenience.

Pre-Cruise Hotel

The first night of the vacation always includes a hotel night. This ensures that you are in the right city to board your boat on time. You’ll be rested and ready to go! Your breakfast and transfers to the boat are also included.

Hop-On/Hop-Off Bus

You’ll spot the buses right away – they look just like the ship! Two buses travel alongside the boat from port to port. At every port, you’ll be able to board these buses for the Hop-On Hop-Off shore excursions. The bus will have a set route in the town, and you can ride until you see someplace you want to go. Then catch the bus the next time it comes thru.
