American Empress

American Empress

Proudly serving America’s western rivers, the American Empress delivers classic elegance and modern luxury on a grand scale. One step onboard and you will quickly discover that there is far more to this vessel than her welcoming appearance and signature red paddlewheel.

Boasting a vast collection of some of the finest historical artifacts and artwork of the Native Alaska, Russian, Gold Rush and sternwheeler eras, the corridors of the American Empress hold nearly as much beauty and intrigue as the dramatic scenery unfolding on the river outside.

Join the American Empress for a paddlewheel cruise through America’s Pacific Northwest. Indulge yourself with delicious, onboard dining choices, welcoming staff and country club ambiance.

American Queen Steamboat Company is strongly committed to preserving the marine environment and continually strives to do our part in keeping America's waterways cleaner.

Each American Empress cruise includes:
• All meals
• Hop-On Hop-Off shore excursions by a fleet of dedicated deluxe motorcoaches
• 1 night pre-cruise hotel stay
• Complimentary wine & beer with dinner on board
• Free on board internet
• 24 hour room service
• Complimentary cappuccino, expresso, bottled water and soft drinks throughout your voyage
