Repositioning cruise follows early completion of American Cruise Lines’ 'Queen of the Mississippi' authentic riverboat construction

 

Newly built and completed, American Cruise Lines' Queen of the Mississippi docked at Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, MD, before leaving for New Orleans.

 

American Cruise Lines announce that its brand new authentic paddlewheeler, Queen of the Mississippi, has received its Coast Guard certificates and six weeks ahead of schedule has left Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, Maryland and is en route to New Orleans, from where her first cruises beginning in early August will depart.

 

The Queen of the Mississippi carries 150 guests in spacious staterooms. Almost all of the staterooms feature large private balconies with sliding glass doors and all of the amenities today’s travelers expect, while maintaining the elegance and Victorian style of classic late 1800s Mississippi riverboats.

 

American Cruise Lines will operate the new authentic paddlewheeler over the entire Mississippi River system, including the Ohio and Cumberland Rivers.

 

The Queen of the Mississippi will also be able to travel at higher speeds than all other Mississippi riverboats, minimizing night travel and making more itineraries possible with longer visits to the river towns. A number of unique riverboat journeys are planned that take guests as far north as St. Paul, MN on the Mississippi River and as far east as Pittsburgh, PA on the Ohio River.
