The American Queen Steamboat Company announced an agreement with Pleasant Holidays that will make 2013 voyages available through the tour operator as part of its U.S. product line. The partnership is part of the American Queen Steamboat Company’s ongoing commitment to the travel agency community.

“Time flies, even on the world’s largest steamboat, and it seems impossible the American Queen Steamboat Company’s inaugural season is coming to a close this month,” explains its CEO Jeffrey D. Krida. “Our new partnership with Pleasant Holidays will put the heartland’s rivers center stage for our travel partners in 2013 and help their clients discover authentic steamboating at our paddlewheel pace.”

Pleasant Holidays will provide a $160 per stateroom onboard credit based upon double occupancy for all 2013 American Queen bookings. Travel agents bookings with Pleasant Holidays can also take advantage of airfares available from cities nationwide, special one-way and roundtrip Hertz car rentals featuring unlimited mileage for those who prefer to drive to the cruise departure city.  Group discounts are available for a minimum of 10 staterooms.
