The first all-suite paddlewheeler on U.S. rivers.
A floating, intimate masterpiece that can carry up to 166 guests through America's heartland, the American Duchess paddlewheeler, created from a 1995 hull, has been completely reconstructed to become one of the most luxurious river cruising vessels in the country.
Featuring 5-star main dining and entertainment venues, soaring ceilings, and all of the features guests have come to expect on other American Queen Steamboat Company cruises, American Duchess is sure to impress.
Her suites range from 180 to 550 square feet, allowing guests to stay in some of the largest accommodations on the rivers. Unique to the American Duchess are her spacious Loft Suites. The lower level features a full bathroom, small dining area, a beautiful lounge section furnished with a queen sofa-bed and desk area, along with sliding doors to access a private balcony. The loft area upstairs is a tranquil retreat with its semi-private bedroom, a full bathroom and gracious closet space.
Featuring a single-seating schedule in the beautiful Grand Dining Room, dining onboard is an experience. Enjoy exquisite cuisine that blends local flavours and fine culinary traditions. A more casual atmosphere is offered at The River Club and Terrace, which can host over 80 guests who wish to dine at their own pace.
Combining the best of the old and the new, this beautiful lady of the river epitomizes the grace and grandeur that has made River Cruising a cherished American tradition for more than two centuries. One voyage and you’ll see why.
