The 166-passenger American Duchess will be the first all-suite paddlewheel boat in the US! The suites range in size from 180 sq ft to 550 sq ft. The boat was created from a 1995 hull, reconstructed into a luxurious river cruise vessel. A completely new concept in river cruising, the American Duchess will have Loft Suites! The lower level will feature a lounge and dining area with full bathroom and sliding doors to a private balcony. The upper level is a semi-private bedroom, full bathroom and closet.
