The Mighty Mississippi

Traveling on the Mighty Mississippi and its tributaries aboard the iconic American Queen or the all-suite American Duchess, you will be transported back in time to an era of leisurely and romantic travel. Storybook American towns and vibrant, bustling cities provide a bit of excitement between peaceful fields of gold, majestic, soaring mountains and high bluffs which inspired the works of Mark Twain. There is no better way to see America than from the perspective of the river, for the river has played a tremendous role in the shaping of this beautiful country and the lives of the people who inhabit it.
