Great American Steamboat Company

America has given rise to many forms of music but few are recognized as being more quintessentially homegrown than country music. The melodies of Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton have shaped generations of new artists ranging from Garth Brooks to Carrie Underwood. Country music is more popular than ever, and this cruise takes you right to Nashville, Music City and home of the Grand Ole Opry.

American Queen

American QueenThe largest steamboat ever built, the grand American Queen is a gracious and elegant triumph of American ingenuity. Although filled with today’s modern amenities, her rooms and accommodations display all the opulence of the American Victorian era. Glistening woodwork, fresh flowers and antiques adorn her interior spaces. Outside, lacy filigree evokes memories of the many stately river steamers that preceded her and so inspired her designers.View ship details...
