The AQV Experience™ About Us

American Queen Voyages brings together three experiences: Rivers, Lakes & Ocean, and Expedition, to unite the North American continent. On American Queen Voyages, mighty rivers, lakes, and oceans transport you to unforgettable places, accompanied by an on-board experience to match.

American Queen Voyages River

Inspired by the great steamboats of the 19th century, our four vintage-style paddlewheelers relive the experiences of a previous generation on a range of cruises to the historic Deep South or Pacific North-West, with all the modern, luxurious amenities that today’s travellers expect.

Experience the romance of the river in a boat as gloriously ornamental as the white ‘wedding cakes’ created in the Victorian era, but with every modern amenity. With four remarkable paddle wheelers in our fleet, we are able to provide a unique vantage point from which to experience the unfolding panorama of American history along the river banks. Join us on board one of these iconic vessels and connect with America’s history in authentic style and luxury.
