About American Countess

The American Countess, offers many of the same exciting heartland and deep South itineraries as her sisters the American Queen and American Duchess. Built from an existing hull, the American Countess underwent significant reconstruction, including lengthening the boat by 60 feet. Guests will enjoy the signature distinctions that have made American Queen Steamboat Company the most award-winning river cruise line in America.

With four decks, including a Sun Deck, and 123 comfortable, inviting staterooms in four categories, this lovely paddlewheeler will become a home away from home on six- to 15-day itineraries, including her own epic Mighty Mississippi cruise. Cabins feature a sleek and modern design that will provide guests with the perfect place to relax after enjoying an included shore excursion or an evening Broadway-caliber performance presented in The Theater onboard.

As our award-winning culinary team takes full advantage of each region's diverse bounty of fresh, local ingredients to fashion authentic dishes, our gracious staff charms guests with friendly, courteous attention to their needs in the Grand Dining Room. A more casual atmosphere is offered in the River Grill, which allows guests to dine at their own pace.

It's easy to stay active onboard the American Countess in her well-appointed Fitness Center, while the Card Room provides a perfect spot for guests to mingle with fellow travelers and newfound friends. It's also a joy to browse for souvenirs in the Gift Shop with which to remember your treasured journey.

Join us as we experience the U.S. rivers from the decks of the American Countess.

American Queen Steamboat Company is strongly committed to preserving the marine environment and continually strives to do our part in keeping America's waterways clean.
