Select 2015 American Queen & American Empress departures only

American Rivers  Are  Beautiful and Interesting!  I can tell you from experience that I have sailed on The American Queen Steamship and she is exquisite and transports you back 100 years.  The food is gourmet and wine and beer flow freely.

 My next sailing will be on the American Empress along the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington just like Lewis and Clark sailed over 200 years ago.  Here’s a history lesson in case you’ve forgotten.  WHAT AN ADVENTURE THESE JOURNEYS COULD BE FOR YOU!
