The Newly Redesigned Paddlewheelers

American Cruise Lines paddlewheelers have gone through a major redesign and renovation. The new interior design has brought our paddlewheeler fleet up to the same high standard of our fleet of modern American Riverboats, while retaining traditional elements true to steamboat history.

The interiors have been reimagined, while maintaining the nostalgic touches that are iconic to classic American paddlewheelers. From staterooms to lounges and dining rooms, each ship has been redesigned with serene color palettes, luxurious textiles and linens, new furniture and carpets, and artwork and flourishes that reflect the region in which they are sailing. 


Explore the best of the Mississippi River on board American Heritage and American Splendor. The d├ęcor of these paddlewheelers celebrate the musical genres of the river from jazz and blues to country and rock ‘n’ roll, as well as literary figures like Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain).

Those on board American West or American Pride can cruise the Columbia and Snake Rivers in sublime comfort, enjoying Western and Native American themes, including the famous Lewis & Clark expedition.
