Enjoy 19th Century Decor on Classic Mississippi River Steamboat

The American Queen steamboat has 222 cabins and suites and accommodates 436 passengers. She's the largest steamboat ever built, and is a real beauty with her wedding cake-tiered decks and fancy latticework.

The interiors and accommodations also have the Victorian look of the 19th century. Although the ship was built in the mid 1990's, the cabins feel more like an historic old bed and breakfast or hotel than they do a cruise ship. There's wallpaper on the walls, and not a piece of modular furniture to be found in the cabins. Thankfully, the beds are new and very comfortable.

Each of the cabins has its own distinct name, adding to the elegant ambiance. Many of the staterooms are named for states, others for famous people, and some for river ports of call.

The American Queen has 5 types of cabins in 13 different categories. These photos show some of the various cabin categories and decors.

It's wonderful to be able to open the French doors in the morning and look out over the river.
