American Queen Steamboat Company 2016 Voyage Highlights

American Queen Steamboat Company has announced its new brochure highlighting some incredible voyages for the 2016 season.

The 75-page brochure showcases the NEW Commodore River Butler Service, two Mighty Mississippi Voyages, and expanded theme programming including Presidents & Politics, Five Rivers of the Heartland and Holiday Markets.

American Queen , the longest riverboat in the world, will be embarking on her fifth season in 2016. She effortlessly transports her guests back in time with her antebellum décor and stops along the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers. Her 2016 season features a total of 45 itineraries.

Commodore River Butler Service – NEW for 2016

Guests booked in luxury suites aboard the American Queen can enjoy the Commodore River Butler Service. This brand new 24-hour personalized butler service includes private check-in, laundry services, shoe shines, afternoon in-suite tea, breakfast and dinner service, in-suite canapés and post-dinner sweets along with a personal escort to reserved balcony seating in the Grand Saloon theatre. This service also applies to guests booked in suites aboard American Empress.

Mighty Mississippi Voyages

2016 will feature two Mighty Mississippi Voyages, traveling the length of the entire river with a southbound and northbound itinerary spanning three weeks. Departing on Aug. 14 southbound or on Sept. 4 northbound, the 23-day sailing is an epic opportunity to discover or rediscover America. The two Mighty Mississippi voyages have been added at the request of our guests.

2016 Themed Voyages

Building on a rich tradition of themed voyages led by Bourbon Voyages, the Antebellum South and the Civil War, three themes for 2016 are adding to the highly anticipated season.

- Presidents & Politics

This voyage coincides with the dates of the 2016 Republican and Democratic National Conventions. The American Queen departs Cincinnati during the GOP convention in Cleveland, and guests will enjoy special presentations from guest speakers and historians addressing such topics as American presidents, politics and elections. A chance to really immerse yourself in the history of the American Presidency.

- Holiday-Christmas Markets

Guests can revel in the Christmas spirit as carolers perform on the levees during the Holiday Christmas Market sailings. An exclusive line-up of Christmas markets offers something for everyone including music, seasonal goods and locally produced crafts. These voyages are always incredible popular, so we do advise you secure your stateroom early to avoid disappointment.

- Five Rivers of the Heartland

This itinerary embarks from St. Louis before traveling southbound on the Mississippi with a stop in Lincoln country at the mouth of the Illinois River. Continuing on her journey, American Queen will sail the Ohio River where guests can enjoy scenic views of the Tennessee River before concluding on the Cumberland River in Nashville.
