Video script – Queen of the Mississippi Christening

Nashville, Tennessee – known for Country Music, The Grand Ole Opry,  Blues, the world famous “Broadway honky-tonks” and – after today — home of christening the Mississippi River’s first paddlewheeler in nearly 20 years.

American Cruise Lines christened their 150-passenger paddlewheerler Queen of the Mississippi today in downtown Nashville, Tennessee on the Cumberland River in front of a sold out sailing. Godmother and small ship expert Phyllis Dale christened to vessel by busting the traditional bottle of champagne over the bow of the ship.

After the celebratory bottle of champagne was broken the CEO of American Cruise Lines, Charles Robertson, presented the emotional godmother with a plaque celebrating the milestone. (OMIT)


American Cruise Lines will operate the new authentic paddlewheeler over the entire Mississippi River System, including the Ohio and Cumberland Rivers, taking guests as far north as St. Paul, MN on the Mississippi River and as far east as Pittsburgh, PA on the Ohio River.


Queen of the Mississippi boasts multiple public areas, free shipboard wifi, complimentary beverages, in room dining, floor to ceiling glass balcony doors and an average stateroom space of 300 sq. ft.

For these guests today, it’s smooth sailing with a Dixieland Band heading west on the Cumberland River.
