About American Queen Steamboat Company’s 4th of July Memphis Cruise Celebration

The American Queen Steamboat Company is offering river cruises aboard its beloved vessel and you can join in the fun, which will include celebrations of Americana complete with patriotic decor, activities, food, drink, music (and, of course, fireworks).

All of the river ships that American Queen Steamboat Company operates are great representations of the celebratory spirit of America, but the American Queen is the cruise line’s quintessential patriotic vessel. The ship provides fabulous cruises (rare opportunities) that let passengers relish time aboard a period boat, all while taking in sights of beautiful Memphis and enjoying shore excursions to visit local vendors.

Plus, the unique American Queen 4th of July voyages give you the chance to mingle with fellow cruises over pre-fireworks gatherings, and then secure ideal spots on deck to see a fireworks show to perhaps beat all fireworks shows. The colored lights that illuminate the night sky take place over the stunning Memphis skyline, offering a tribute to America that is truly special.

It’s not every day that a ship like the American Queen sails with flags flying, music abuzz, and patriotic festivities taking place one after the other. Which means you should secure your spot on this journey while you can. The following is just a bit of what’s in store for you on a 4th of July river cruise on the American Queen.
