American Countess

The newest addition to the American Queen Voyages fleet, American Countess will honor the traditional romance of river cruising onboard a modern and spacious craft. Refitted substantially from a former hull, the Kanesville Queen gambling boat, American Countess now spans four decks with a theater, pool, two dining halls, and several common areas for guests to mingle.

Travel the Ohio, Cumberland, Tennessee, and Mississippi rivers in the style and comfort of a smooth paddlewheeler holding 245 passengers. Although it’s newer, this ship doesn’t sacrifice the brand’s classical charm synonymous with river cruising. Just like on its three sister ships, American Countess will delight travelers with cozy cabins, savory cuisine, and an eager-to-please staff.


There’s no shortage of options for American Countess itineraries. Sailing from six departure ports, multiple journeys are available across the American heartlands. Explore landmarks and hidden gems alike when visiting iconic cities such as Memphis and New Orleans. You can also dive deep into Civil War history or celebrate the holiday seasons on special themed voyages.

On-board enrichment programs led by expert “Riverlorians” will further immerse you in each location’s culture before embarking on guided Hop-On Hop-Off shore excursions.

Dining Options

American Queen Voyages has quite the reputation for its culinary delights. American Countess will honor that tradition with locally sourced dishes and comfort food tailored to its Southern itineraries. Savor a multi-course meal at the lavish Grand Dining Hall, designed to treat you to a panoramic view with floor-to-ceiling windows. The River Grill provides a more casual atmosphere with an array of pleasing options for all pallets.


Along with its extensive enrichment opportunities, there’s plenty of entertainment to keep you occupied onboard American Countess. Enjoy nightly Broadway-caliber shows at The Theater, or gather for drinks, live music, books, or board games at The Library. A refined Fitness Center, sun deck, and spa also provide more options than other classical river vessels.

Your dream vacation is just one click or call away. Don’t miss out on the exclusive savings and limited-time deals you’ll get by booking with us. Contact us now to start instantly saving on your next voyage aboard American Countess.
