VICKSBURG — After more than three years, the American Queen riverboat again will dock at Vicksburg’s City Front.

The Vicksburg Post reports that the American Queen will return to the city when its new owner, the Great American Steamboat Company, resumes Mississippi River cruises in April.

Bill Seratt, executive director of the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau, said tourism officials are eager to get the riverboat back.

Jeffrey Krida, Great American’s chief executive officer, said some of the trips will make Vicksburg an overnight destination.
