American Queen Voyages has published its 2024 brochure, featuring four completely new itineraries for the UK market.

The company is famous for its fleet of iconic paddlewheel steamboats, American Queen, American Countess and American Empress, which cruise the Mississippi, Ohio, Cumberland and Tennessee rivers in the Deep South and through America’s Heartland, and the Snake and Columbia rivers in the Pacific Northwest.

Also featured in the new brochure will be Alaskan expedition cruising onboard the company’s 186 guest, new generation, environmentally friendly expedition ship, Ocean Victory.

14 itineraries are featured in the UK market brochure and the four new itineraries that haven’t been available to UK customers before are cruises on the Upper Mississippi and its tributaries -Ohio, Cumberland, Illinois and Tennessee Rivers. These are:-

  • Upper Mississippi 

-10 days St Louis to Minneapolis – Mississippi & Illinois Rivers – from £4,399 pp

  • America’s Heartlands 

-10 Days Memphis to Louisville – Ohio & Mississippi Rivers – from £5,399pp

-10 Days Louisville to Pittsburgh – Ohio & Mississippi Rivers – from £5,099pp

-10 Days Nashville to St Louis: Mississippi, Tennessee & Cumberland Rivers -from £4399pp

In addition, American Queen Voyages has added new 5, 6 and 10-Day New Orleans round trip itineraries on the Lower Mississippi, and a 9-Days round trip Portland itinerary on the Snake & Columbia rivers.

American Queen Voyages’ UK representative Rupert Thomson said: “Up to now cruises on the Lower Mississippi, between New Orleans and Memphis, have been the most popular with UK travellers.  It’s really exciting to now be able to offer cruises on the stretch of the Mississippi above New Orleans, and also the lesser-known tributaries of the river.

“The Upper Mississippi and its tributaries, as depicted in Mark Twain’s novels, bring a changing lush landscape, combined with small-town America historical towns and sites, alongside famous cities such as Nashville, St Louis and Minneapolis.”

The all-inclusive cruises* are mostly seven nights, packaged as nine or ten-day itineraries, with pre-cruise hotel nights. Prices start from £3,999 pp.

The brochure also includes a double page spread on the American Queen with her highlighted facilities, plus a timeline of the birth of the steamboat and American Queen Voyages’ history.
