American Countess

American Queen Steamboat Company's American Countess Ships

The latest addition to the American Queen Steamboat Company’s fleet of authentic paddle wheelers, the American Countess, offers many of the same exciting heartland and deep South itineraries as her sisters the American Queen and American Duchess. Built from an existing hull, the American Countess underwent significant reconstruction, including lengthening the boat by 60 feet. Guests will enjoy the signature distinctions that have made American Queen Steamboat Company the most award-winning river cruise line in America.

With four decks, including a Sun Deck, and 123 comfortable, inviting staterooms in four categories, this lovely paddlewheeler will become a home away from home on six- to 15-day itineraries, including her own epic Mighty Mississippi cruise. Cabins feature a sleek and modern design that will provide guests with the perfect place to relax after enjoying an included shore excursion or an evening Broadway-calibre performance presented in The Theater onboard.

As an award-winning culinary team takes full advantage of each region’s diverse bounty of fresh, local ingredients to fashion authentic dishes, the gracious staff charms guests with friendly, courteous attention to their needs in the Grand Dining Room. A more casual atmosphere is offered in the River Grill, which allows guests to dine at their own pace.

It’s easy to stay active onboard the American Countess in her well-appointed Fitness Center, while the Card Room provides a perfect spot for guests to mingle with fellow travellers and newfound friends.
American Queen Steamboat Company is strongly committed to preserving the marine environment and continually strives to do our part in keeping America's waterways clean.
Each American Countess cruise includes:
• All meals
• Hop-On Hop-Off shore excursions by a fleet of dedicated deluxe motorcoaches
• Free on board internet
• 24 hour room service
• Complimentary cappuccino, expresso, bottled water and soft drinks throughout your voyage
