American Empress

Cruise on board American Queen Steamboat Company's American Empress

Wind back the clock and step into a world more refined, more luxurious and more relaxed aboard the American Empress. This traditional paddleboat sails the historical route from Portland to Oregon, Clarkston and Washington, retracing pioneering footsteps through quaint towns and esteemed vineyards on the Columbia and Snake Rivers.

Aboard, the atmosphere reflects all the opulent fixtures of Victorian times, with ornate chandeliers, sumptuous décor and luxurious accommodation. While the ambience is distinctly old world, the amenities are not, with modern luxuries seamlessly blending with the elegant paddle-steamer style.

Marvel at the vast collection of artifacts aboard including pieces from Native Alaska, Russia, and the Gold Rush. Heralded as almost as majestic as the scenery beyond the windows, these pieces add beauty and intrigue to an already stunning voyage of discovery.

When it comes to accommodation, all staterooms are elegantly decked out and feature either a balcony or picture window. Public spaces include the show lounge, Paddlewheel lounge, River Grill and Bar, and Astoria Dining Room. Each voyage is accompanied by an expert on the history and culture of the regions visited, while nightfall sees the ship come alive with Broadway-style revues, solo performers and dancing.

The American Empress is the largest, most elegant riverboat in the American Northwest, combining the new and the old for an authentic and memorable voyage.
