Ohio & Tennessee River Cruises

In the wake of wayfarers, meet adventure on the Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers


Coursing nearly 1,000 miles, the Ohio River forged through the surrounding valley and opened the West to early explorers and pioneers. Feel the same sense of wonder and possibility that fueled their courageous journeys. From small towns crowned by church steeples to polished urban landscapes brimming with culture, adventure awaits by the mile. Join us on our Ohio ,  Tennessee and Cumberland River cruises for historic cities and regions that house rich culture and history.

In America’s heartland, nature unfolds the beauty of each season as we peacefully drift past rolling meadows, charming farms, rustic railroad bridges and towering bluffs along the Ohio River. Friendly locals on shore greet our elegant craft like cherished friends as we cruise by.
 
Hospitality is a priority for American Queen Steamboat Company, and on these rivers, guests will be delighted to experience the professionalism and unique atmosphere at accommodations such as The Brown Hotel and Gaylord Opryland Resort on select pre-cruise hotel stay nights. The residents within each town we visit have the same welcoming demeanor; fall in love with the friendliness that flows through the streets in stops such as Madison, Indiana, and Chattanooga, Tennessee.
 
Both optional premium experiences and included excursions offer travelers the opportunity to visit iconic sites along the riverway: Louisville’s Churchill Downs; Paducah, Kentucky’s, National Quilt Museum; and Huntington, West Virginia’s, Huntington Museum of Art await. From Memphis to Pittsburgh and everywhere in between, the adventure is unending.
 
Stepping off in each beloved and historic port will leave you enriched, for each one has a story to tell about the soul of this great land.
