Ship Facts: Queen of the West Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen of the West Deck Plans
Queen of the Worst

It rained the first 3 days of the trip which was not the fault of ACL.This meant we could not go to Astoria. They didn't seam to know what to do and we traveled about 35 miles in 3 days. The cabins on this boat are so small that the bed takes up about 75% of the room. The tv is on desk next to the bed with no place to sit to watch it. A lamp next to the bed was connected to an extension that went across the room to a outlet. This was in front of the door that led to the small balcony. If you wanted to sit and read you had to go to the library as there was no room in the cabin.

I called ACL twice to find out the cost of excursions and they said you will find out when you board the ship. The booklet said $20 to $90. They charged $40 to $120. The per diem cost of the cruise was more than some luxury cruises we have taken.

Some the most scenic parts of this cruise were traveled at night or during a lunch or dinner hour.

The food choice was minimal but basically well prepared The kids serving the meals also cleaned the rooms. They were hard working and enjoyable.

In summary this the most over priced bare bones cruise we have ever gone on.
