American Heritage (2015-built as "Queen of the Mississippi", renamed after major drydock refurbishment in 2021-2022) is an authentic late 1800s design Mississippi River steamboat paddle-wheeler owned by the American Cruise Lines company. The company's other riverboats with paddle-wheel design are American Splendor/fka America (2016 as "American Eagle", sistership), American Pride (2012, the old "Queen of the Mississippi" ship) and American West/fka Queen of the West. With similar design are also the American Queen Voyages ships American Queen and American Empress. All these classic American paddle-wheel design ships were known in the past as "paddle steamers". They were powered by steam engines driving paddle-wheels (one at the stern or two at the sides) that propel the ship through the water. The new Queen of the Mississippi ship is powered by two diesel engines, and its propulsion system has 3 Azimuth thrusters.
Queen of the Mississippi/American Heritage river cruise ship deck plan shows a total of 84 staterooms for 150 passengers served by 50 crew/staff. The boat has 5 passenger decks (accessible via 2 elevators), 7 bars/lounges, 1 restaurant.
Among the riverboat's main features are:
- historically accurate design and decor
- large collection of artworks on display throughout
- modern maritime technologies
- luxury hotel amenities and comfort
- historically-themed onboard activities and entertainment
- uniquely designed excursions and tours themed on USA history, heritage and culinary
- top-quality river travel vacation experience along the Mississippi River cruise itinerary route.
Note: In August 2015, the shipowner announced that the old “Queen of the Mississippi” ship (launched in 2012 on Mississippi River) would be renamed "American Pride" and relocated on Columbia River (USA Pacific Northwest).
