The primary distribution strategy for American Queen Voyages within the Australasian market will be Journey Beyond’s network of trade partners.
The all-inclusive and immersive nature of these voyages matches the elements being sought by guests travelling on Journey Beyond’s rail journeys, such as The Ghan, or small-group 4WD expedition operator, Outback Spirit.
‘Guests can expect superb southern hospitality and itineraries curated to discover North America’s diversity, while travelling in the height of luxury and comfort,’ says Tallent.
Itineraries include dining with menus influenced by flavours of the region, live entertainment and shore excursions.
American Queen Voyages offers itineraries along the Lower Mississippi, the Upper Mississippi, Columbia and Snake Rivers and The Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers. The flagship tour, Memphis to New Orleans, is a nine-day all-inclusive river cruise, filled with a soundtrack of Memphis blues and New Orleans jazz. www.aqvoyages.com.au
