Sister ship to the ‘American Splendor’, the American Heritage made its debut in 2015. This paddle wheeler has recreated the grandeur of past riverboats while possessing the latest safety, environmental, and construction technologies.
The American Heritage has the look of a traditional riverboat along with more amenities, a faster speed, and an unmatched level of comfort. Features include six unique lounges, a library, an elegant dining salon, elevator service to all decks, and exceptionally large staterooms.
From the staterooms and suites to the lounges and dining rooms, American Heritage will be completely remodeled with new color palettes, luxurious textiles and linens, new furniture and carpets, and artwork and flourishes, celebrating the Mighty Mississippi River.
Queen of the Mississippi/American Heritage river cruise ship deck plan shows a total of 84 staterooms for 150 passengers served by 50 crew/staff. The boat has 5 passenger decks (accessible via 2 elevators), 7 bars/lounges, and 1 restaurant.
