This week on Avid Travel With Britton Frostwe are joined by EVP Hotel Operations & New Construction at American Queen Steamboat Company, David Kelly. Kelly and I sat down to discuss what American Queen Steamboat Company has to offer on the Mississippi, as well as what its sister company, Victory Cruise lines, has to offer in the rest of North America.
Having cruised a lot of the world, the US feels the most foreign to me in terms of river cruising. Sure, cruise guests can sail through Alaska, California, up the east coast, and more; but there are few river cruise options for guests wishing to sail within the US. In fact, there are only two cruise companies that operate on the Mississippi. Kelly speaks to the experience aboard American Queen Steamboat Company’s fleet, and what guests can expect from a Mississippi River cruise.
Later in the podcast, Kelly speaks to the cruises that Victory Cruise Lines, owned by AQSC, offers guests in Canada and the Great Lakes.
