We took the American Queen from Memphis to Louisville. The stateroom and bathroom were larger than most other cruise lines we've experienced, but the food was mediocre, and the service was definitely not up to snuff. Some examples: (1) Promised free wifi was almost nonexistent,...More

Cost depends on time of travel and of room. Queen Steamboat Company brochure listed our April 2018 cruise from New Orleans to Memphis as $6,000 for a small inside room and $10,000 for a larger one with veranda.
