Mississippi River cruises on the American Queen
Welcome aboard the largest paddleboat steamboat ever built – the iconic American Queen. Journeys on this vessel are designed to transport you back to the USA’s opulent Victorian era. The boat is modelled in the style of a traditional Mississippi riverboat, and its interiors are as elegant as they come – think grand sweeping staircases, regal-looking carpets, and glittering chandeliers.
Despite its smaller size – the passenger capacity is a little over 400 – the vessel doesn’t scrimp on facilities. There’s a spa and wellness centre, a sleek outdoor pool and whirlpool bath, and a string of plush entertainment venues, including a movie theatre, a glamorous cocktail bar, and a show lounge modelled after Washington’s famous Ford's Theatre.
Book an American Queen voyage with Saga, and you’ll sail between Memphis and New Orleans, experiencing the history, music, and cuisine of this captivating part of the world along the way.
