Ship Facts: Queen of the West Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen of the West Deck Plans
American Cruise Lines Columbia & Snake Rivers Cruise

Cruising the Columbia and Snake Rivers, from Clarkston, WA to Portland, OR, on the Queen of the West, our fifth trip with American Cruise Lines (ACL), was fascinating. The scenery was often breath-taking, especially in the Columbia Gorge, and the many examples of the awesome power of Nature were humbling, particularly learning about the formation of the gorge and the Mt. Saint Helens eruption.

Most impressive of the shore excursions were the Mt. Saint Helens interpretive center, especially the two videos, the Astoria maritime museum and Ft Clatsop.

The Queen of the West, while not quite as impressive as ACL's new Queen of the Mississippi, was very comfortable and immaculately maintained, the staterooms had all the comforts one would wish.

As always, the relaxed but pampered experience provided by the staff was a highlight. The friendly, skilled and caring attitude of the staff has been one of the best features of all our cruises with ACL.

The small number of passengers (106 on this trip), open seating dining and the wonderful cocktail hour enabled meeting lots of new people in a very convivial setting. As on previous cruises, we met people with whom we'll keep in touch and cruise again.

All in all, it was a very enjoyable cruise.
