Spacious luxury awaits aboard the floating masterpiece that is the American Duchess. This boutique-style riverboat offers exquisite dining, beautiful decks and exceptional amenities. Her suites range from 180 to 550 square feet, allowing guests to stay in some of the largest accommodations on the rivers. Unique to the American Duchess are her Loft Suites, which feature two stories enhanced by floor-to-ceiling windows, two full bathrooms, a comfortable dining area, a beautiful lounge with a queen sofa-bed, a private balcony and an upstairs bedroom.

Combining the best of the old and the new, this beautiful lady epitomizes the grace and grandeur that have made cruising on the Mississippi River a cherished American tradition for more than two centuries.

DINING
Inspired by America’s heartland and our Southern heritage, our menus showcase the varied cultural and culinary influences of our nation. In the elegant J.M. White dining room, any meal will keep you savoring the memory of the flavors and sharing your excitement for our excellent service – even after you leave the boat. If you are looking for a more casual atmosphere, the Front Porch Café is for you. Meals there feature favorite main dishes, such as roast prime rib alongside irresistible sides – roasted new potatoes, classic mac-and-cheese and fresh salads.

ENTERTAINMENT
Entertainment on the American Duchess is one-of-a-kind. Make plans to spend your evenings with nightly river cruise entertainment. Live entertainers will bring down the house in The Show Lounge. Catch world-class entertainment, relive a historical moment or hear a famous river tale originally told by Mark Twain. And be sure to bring your dancin’ shoes to the Lincoln Library to enjoy a late-night live set by our talented musicians.

ENRICHMENT
Learn more about the region in which you are traveling with a number of enrichment programs we offer. See for yourself the highlights of each port that we visit on one of our guided Hop-On Hop-Off shore excursions, or elect to take part in one of our expertly designed premium experiences. And our onboard historians – we like to call them Riverlorians – provide interesting lectures on the history and culture that surrounds you as you roll down the river.

RELAXATION
The rhythm of the river is slow as a southern drawl that invites us all to take a deep breath and enjoy the simple moments. The Lincoln library is more than just a space to gather for morning coffee and your favorite book. And the Art Walk, a passageway alongside The Show Lounge, features a series of paintings by Claude Monet. It’s the perfect place to soak up some beauty or simply curl up with a book in one of its window seats.
