Break out the accordion and washboard because American Cruise Lines will christen their new paddlewheeler, Queen of the Mississippi, in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday August 25. The godmother of the new 150-guest paddlewheeler will be Phyllis Dale, a nationally-recognized travel agent and small-ship cruise expert.
“The christening of Queen of the Mississippi is a meaningful way to celebrate the official launch of American Cruise Lines service on the Mississippi River,” said Charles A. Robertson, president and CEO, American Cruise Lines. “Guests now have access to the industry’s best amenities aboard an authentic paddlewheeler with a historic appearance.”
Following the ceremony, Queen of the Mississippi, the first authentic paddlewheeler built for the Mississippi River in nearly 20 years,will sail sold-out eight-day voyage from Nashville to St. Louis.
