Default American Queen - December Cruise

My husband and I are contemplating a cruise on the American Queen. We are both 45 years old and have been on three Caribbean cruises and want a change of pace. Has anyone been on the American Queen and what is it like? Types of activities during the daytime? Meals, etc.? Thank you for any advice

Hope I can shed some light on these trips. I've travelled on the American, Mississippi and the Delta Queen. At the time of these trips I was in my early 30's and other than some younger children, I was definitely the youngest adult. These trips are not for everyone, but I really enjoyed the slower pace, seeing this great country from the backs of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, and the wonderful food. Most of the onboard activities are geared towards the older crowd, but I managed to find plenty to do. The paddle wheelers are incredible trip!!
It's unfortunate that this cruiseline is soooooo expensive though, I will probably never go again! I was the companion of my cousin who is in her 80's (we had great fun with everyone confusing her for my grandmother), and this is the reason I was able to go.

We enjoyed the American Queen. It is the largest of the Delta Queen family. The food was good with good service. The bar service was a little slow at times. The evening entertainment was good as was the daily "River Historian" talks about the river and its history. We enjoyed every one of the daily land tours. Our cruise was from New Orleans to Memphis. The ship is smaller than your Caribbean ships but it many ways that is better. On our cruise it was interesting to watch the ship lower its smokestacks to pass under several bridges. Also, this ship can stop at ports without major docks by using its passanger tram located on its bow.
