Ports

New Orleans

New Orleans is a Louisiana city on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico.
Nicknamed the "Big Easy," it's known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures.

Nottoway

Oak Alley

Oak Alley Plantation is a historic plantation located on the west bank of the Mississippi River, in the community of Vacherie, St. James Parish, Louisiana, U.S. Oak Alley is named for its distinguishing visual feature, an alley (French allée) or canopied path, created by a double row of southern live oak trees about 800 feet (240 meters) long, planted in the early 18th century — long before the present house was built. The allée or tree avenue runs between the home and the River. The property was designated a National Historic Landmark for its architecture and landscaping, and for the agricultural innovation of grafting pecan trees, performed here in 1846-47 by a slave gardener.

Ship info

American Queen

She is the largest steamboat ever built - a triumph of modern American ingenuity, combined with 19th century machinery and marked by the delicate beauty of an elaborate wedding cake. Richly appointed and offering the contemporary amenities of a luxurious boutique hotel, her atmosphere is one of American Victorian opulence. You are warmed by polished mahogany and pristine antiques, charmed by fresh flowers and festivites. From the lacy filigree of her exterior to the spaciousness of her staterooms, she impresses. On board, you easily find the perfect setting to fit your mood. Steal away for lattes and intimate conversation with your special one, or make new friends over cocktails and canapes. Curl up with a book from the vast collection in the Mark Twain gallery. Take a few laps around the deck or a dip in the pool. Share in the celebration of a sing-along in the lounge. Then, sit back and enjoy the show in the two-deck-tall Grand Saloon, a stunning replica of the famous Ford's Theatre in Washington, DC. Combining the best of yesteryear with the comfort and convenience of today, the Steamer American Queen is your escape from the rush and fuss of every day. One voyage and you will understand why Steamboating is a beloved American tradition.
