Tracing the history of the legendary Mississippi river, the American Queen Steamboat Company provides extraordinary journeys on board the world’s largest working steamboat in service, the American Queen.
Provided by Cosmos Tours and Cruises, guests will be guaranteed an expert level of service that ensures the experience is smooth and unforgettable.
Join the American Queen on its path through the beautiful country of the US and experience the colourful cities of St. Louis, Memphis and Cincinnati, or let your self be immersed in the river’s deep past of exploration.
As the grand lifeline of North America, the Mississippi holds the tales of its ancient inhabitants, the Native Americans, as well as hundreds of explorers and settlers who traversed the river during America’s early years.
The Mississippi river was most significantly an agricultural haven to the settlers, who previously suffered from the harsh weather of America’s plains, and a strong trade route that, during the Civil War, provided an advantage for the Union forces and helped secure victories against the Confederacy.
