American Queen Steamboat
If you were down near Sawyer Point and the Ohio river on August 8,2013, you most likely saw a big steamboat. The American Queen was docked there. The American Queen is the largest river steamboat ever built. It was built in 1995, and is 6 decks high. It has 222 staterooms and holds 436 passengers. It also has a crew of 160. It offers 3 to 10 night voyages from a variety of homeports, which includes Saint Paul, New Orleans, Louisville, Cincinnati, Baton Rouge, Vicksburg, Natchez, Pittsburgh, Memphis, and Saint Louis.
This was a neat boat to see up close. It was big. If you were down on the river on August 8th and you saw the boat let me know what you thought of it.
