The American Duchess is the first all-suite paddle wheeler on U.S. Rivers, a floating, intimate masterpiece that can carry up to 166 guests through America's heartland. 

The paddle wheeler, created from a 1995 hull, was completely reconstructed to become one of the most luxurious river cruising vessels in the country, featuring single-seating main dining and entertainment venues, soaring ceilings, and all of the features guests have come to expect on other American Queen Steamboat Company cruises.

Cuisine and Dining on American Duchess

Served by an all-American crew, dining on the American Duchess is an absolute treat. In the grand and beautifully decorated Grand Dining Room, you’ll find a delicious feast that includes hot beignets, bananas foster, and French toast for breakfast while having a sumptuous five-course dinner.

The Grill Room is an equally exceptional opportunity for Al fresco dining, with delicious BBQ grill meals and fresh salads available whenever you want.

Entertainment on American Duchess

Night after night, top entertainers bring down the house in the American Duchess's majestic Show Lounge/Auditorium. Each evening the lights dim, the curtains rise and our talented performers offer you entertainment worthy of Broadway.

As history plays such a large part of your cruise experience, a Riverlorian is on board for each voyage to impart the history and lore of the river on which you are cruising. In addition to the ever-present Riverlorian, American Duchess often features a diverse line-up of guest historians who take to the stage and transport you to another era. 

Relive a tale from Mark Twain for an enchanted evening and you will retire to your room convinced that you've just had a conversation with history.

Spa & Fitness on American Duchess

Besides giving cultural and historical experiences for the mind, the American Duchess has a state-of-the-art gym to ensure that your body is also being looked after, as well as an expert spa and masseur that gives you a selection of refreshing body treatments.
