American Queen Steamboat Company Re-Launches Steamboating Society Loyalty Program

The American Queen Steamboat Company announced the re-launch of the Paddlewheel Steamboating Society of America loyalty program. For many years, the Paddlewheel Steamboating Society of America hosted its travelers from the Delta Queen, Mississippi Queen and American Queen on specially arranged insider experiences ashore prior to voyages and the tradition has returned once again with the re-launch of the American Queen.

When guests reserve the Old Fashioned Holidays cruise aboard the American Queen from Dec. 14 to 21, 2012, they will be invited to a pre-cruise Reunion Celebration in New Orleans from Dec. 12 to 14. The package includes two nights’ accommodations at The Roosevelt New Orleans and a gala cocktail in the hotel’s famed Blue Room. Other exclusive features include brunch at The Court of Two Sisters in the heart of the French Quarter, motorcoach city tour, holiday party at the private residence of Houmas House Plantation owner Kevin Kelly, dinner and dancing with the Dixieland Band at the Palm Court Jazz Café and tour of the WWII Museum.

Upon boarding the American Queen, guests will experience a seven-night New Orleans roundtrip voyage  calling on Oak Alley, La.; St. Francisville, La.; Natchez, Miss.; Vicksburg, Miss.; Baton Rouge, La.; and Houmas House, La. The Old Fashioned Holidays fare begins at $1,995 per person, based on double occupancy. In addition to pre-cruise festivities, all shore tours onboard deluxe SteamcoachesSM in all ports are included along with complimentary wine and beer with dinner and a host of other amenities.
