American Queen Steamboat Company invites guests to experience the rich history and cultural diversity of the old South during the fall season on its American Queen and American Duchess riverboats. From carefree New Orleans to vibrant Memphis, the lower stretch of the Mississippi is the river of legends where guests can experience centuries-old shaded oak trees, elegant antebellum plantations, picturesque cobblestone streets and Victorian mansions. Now through Aug. 31, 2019, guests can save up to $1,000 per stateroom on select 2019 voyages.
The history of the Lower Mississippi River comes to life in pristinely preserved river towns such as New Orleans, Oak Alley, Nottoway, Baton Rouge, St. Francisville, Natchez, Vicksburg, Greenville, Memphis and more.
