The American Queen Steamboat Company has introduced new adventure cruises and larger family suites in its just-released 2018 Voyages brochure.
The US river cruise line offers adventure excursions including hiking, kayaking and zip-lining on American Empress's new Pacific Northwest Adventure itineraries along the west of the Mississippi to Portland.
Five luxury suites have been created on the American Queen by combining existing suites with inside rooms and adding bathrooms, looking to attract larger family groups on the cruise from New Orleans to Memphis.
The new brochure also features itineraries on board the new ship American Duchess which commences sailings in July 2017. Options include trips along the upper Mississippi and Illinois rivers, including a nine-day Kentucky Derby itinerary from Louisville to Cincinnati.
Duchess sailings start from £3,975 including flights from the UK, one night pre-cruise hotel stay and seven nights on board with all meals, wine at dinner and shore excursions in all ports. Empress sailings start from £3,219 and those on Queen from £2,895. These also include flights from the UK and pre-cruise hotel night accommodation.
