Queen of Mississippi

We are delighted to have chartered the Queen of the Mississippi which was launched in 2012. Accommodating 150 passengers, the vessel brings a new high standard to America’s most iconic river. Beneath her gleaming woodwork and brass fixtures is a framework of modern cruise ship technology that provides passengers with the comfortable surroundings and personalised service whilst cruising the Mississippi. The Queen of the Mississippi features an authentic paddlewheel, offers spacious staterooms and provides more space per passenger than many other river cruise ships operating on the Mississippi.
