Beyond Expectations

American Empress Cruise Review by beldingi

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2015
  • Destination: North America River

Everything was beyond what I expected. Larger cabin, comfortable bed, excellent food. And the service - bar manager, cruise directors, Carmen the Maitre D', the housekeepers, Anton in Astoria Room, Richard and Jill and Shade and Michael in the River Grill - all were wonderful and treated everyone like they were royalty. Food was locally sourced and inspired, and of course delicious.

Weather was great that week, and the locks and dams provided great views. Last day in Astoria offered a nice 'Lewis and Clark Experience' excursion that I would recommend. Would also recommend travelling east to west, following the L&C passage. Davenport Hotel in Spokane is beautiful, and the check-in easy as could be. Unlike a previous reviewer, my (very comfortable) bus had wi-fi and a bathroom.
