LAUNCHING A RIVERBOAT AND A WINE PROGRAM

When we first set our sights on the Pacific Northwest, we knew that when we entered the region we wanted to do so with a big splash. We were fortunate that the largest riverboat west of the Mississippi River was on the market, that she had been tailor-made to cruise along the Columbia and Snake rivers and that her standard of design and interior finishing was on par with our beloved American Queen. The elegant 223-guest American Empress, which will be named at a special ceremony this Saturday in Portland, Ore., is the perfect addition to our fleet.

PREPARING FOR THE BIG DAY

In just 16 days, one of the biggest events in the history of the American Queen Steamboat Company will take place in Portland, Oregon. On that date, our newest addition, the 223-guest riverboat American Empress, enters service on 9-day Pacific Northwest cruises voyages on the Columbia and Snake rivers between Portland and Clarkston, Washington. From the moment we reintroduced the grand 436-guest American Queen to Mississippi River cruising two years ago it was always our intent to add another vessel and to sail in other areas of the United States. In two and a half weeks, that dream becomes reality and everyone here at the American Queen Steamboat Company couldn’t be more excited.

Even more exciting, a whole new world of savings opens up as well.
