Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

American Queen Steamboat Company features a collection of modern, elegant paddlewheelers that cruise the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, Cumberland and Illinois rivers in America's heartland and the Columbia and Snake rivers in the Pacific Northwest.

The company resumed sailing the Mississippi River in March with the American Countess and American Duchess and the Columbia and Snake rivers in June with the American Empress. The company's largest vessel and namesake, the American Queen, restarted cruises on the Mississippi River last month.

All of the company's ships are now operating, and vaccinations are required for all passengers and crew on every sailing. Some 2021 cruises still have space available as of now.

American Queen Steamboat Company has these terrific offers for our customers.

Save up to $2,200 per stateroom on 2021 sailings. Book by September 30.

Save up to $2,000 per stateroom on 2022 and 2023 cruises.

American Queen Steamboat Company has a number of new themed itineraries for 2022. Discover the Lower Mississippi's storied history and explore the favorite haunts of former inhabitants on Exploring Haunted History. Pack your best tie-dye shirts and bell bottoms and get ready to move to the rhythm of the 1970s on Celebrate the 70s, or visit special holiday markets featuring local artisans on Holidays on the River.

Cruise fares include a pre-voyage hotel night, unlimited shore excursions, regionally inspired cuisine, live daily entertainment and enrichment programs, 24-hour room service, Wi-Fi service and unlimited soft drinks and specialty coffees throughout the trip. Enjoy choice spirits, wine and local craft beer -- all included with your cruise.

Last, American Queen Steamboat Company is offering a "Risk-Free Booking" program that gives customers who book now through October 31 for travel through March 31, 2022, the flexibility to switch to a different cruise in 2021 or 2022 up to 21 days prior to departure without penalty. Customers would just need to pay any difference in price if the second cruise costs more than the first.
