Your Itinerary

    1Deluxe Hotel Stay in Minneapolis, MN

    2Embark in Red Wing, MN
    Welcome aboard the American Queen!

    3River Cruising
    Enjoy the mighty Mississippi! Take a dip in the pool, visit with friends over drinks, or learn about life on the river from the Riverlorian!

    4Dubuque, IA
    Dubuque is the oldest city in Iowa, named for the first permanent settler, a fur trader named Julien Dubuque. River towns have a tendency to attract whoever and whatever is floating on the river, so Dubuque has a long history of immigrant groups settling here, including Irish and German immigrants moving away from the overcrowded cities of the east coast. Included shore excursions will visit the Dubuque Museum of Art, the Fenelon Place Elevator, Grand Opera House, and more. The optional premium shore excursion will visit Galena IL, including the home of Ulysses S. Grant.

    5Prairie du Chien, WI
    After you learn how to properly pronounce Prairie du Chien, spend time exploring the local history, including a visit to Villa Louis Residence and Grounds, a Victorian estate originally built in the 1840’s.

    6La Crosse, WI
    This city on the river was originally built for the lumber industry, but found new life in beer. Today, the architecture, statues and views of the river make it an artist’s dream.

    7Winona, MN
    ‘Island City’ was built on a large sand bar. There’s evidence of people living in the region as far back as 9500 BC, but the present town began as the village of Keoxa in 1851. The limestone river bluffs are stunning as they plunge into the Mississippi River below.

    8Red Wing, MN
    Listed as a National Geographic Traveler’s Most Historic Places in the World, Red Wing was built on a thriving pottery industry. You can still admire the craftsmanship at the Red Wing Pottery Showroom and the Pottery Museum of Red Wing.

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.
