American Queen Steamboat Company has announced the release of its 2018 deluxe brochure, which includes a 100 page full-color overview of its new itineraries, as well as the routes of its river cruise offerings for the seventh season of the line’s U.S.-flagged routes.
The vessels include American Queen, American Empress and the new American Duchess riverboats.
The brochure aims to highlight American Queen Steamboat Company’s itineraries. Guests can begin planning 2018 trips on the American Queen, American Empress and American Duchess, scheduled to debut in June 2017, exploring the waters and towns throughout the United States and the Pacific Northwest.
New offerings to the brochure for the 2018 season include:
- Family Suites onboard the American Queen, with amenities including single-room suites, as well as accommodations for families and friends vacationing together.
- New itineraries on the Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers aboard the American Duchess as well as on the Upper Mississippi and Illinois River, which include a nine-day Kentucky Derby-focused itinerary from Louisville, Kentucky to Cincinnati, Ohio. Other new itineraries include Cincinnati, Ohio to Memphis, TN; Louisville, Kentucky to Pittsburgh, PA; and vice versa; and Nashville, TN, to Chattanooga, TN and vice versa.
- Pacific Northwest Adventure theme cruises on the American Empress, offering soft-adventure activities designed for guests of all ages, such as tandem rides on a kayak or ziplining.
As the first all-suite paddle-wheeler on U.S. rivers, the American Duchess can carry up to 166 guests. It is expected to host 49 sailings in 2018, with routes that aim to highlight the history of America’s heartland along the Mississippi River with new stops and overnights in ports including Nashville and Chicago.
