Sail Date: Oct 2022

This cruise goes from Clarkston to Portland. The first excursion we took was the JetBoat Tour of Hell’s Canyon. I have never seen anything like the terrain. We saw BigHorn Sheep, Deer, Turkeys, and a bald Eagle. The river is clear and beautiful.

This cruise was wine themed so we had wine tastings onboard and two dinners with wine pairings. We also did the Red Mountain Vines to Wine excursion.

The boat is smaller than the Countess but perfectly functional and our cabin was roomy with plenty of storage. Big closets (two of them!) and a private balcony. The bed was so comfortable I hardly wanted to get out of it in the morning.

Response from BriannaH, Guest Relations @American Queen Voyages

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your American Empress sailing. We are so glad that the excursions, food, and onboard experience...

Cabin Review

Beautifully decorated. You feel like you are staying in a mansion vs a hotel room. Very spacious with a lot of storage room. The bathroom is adequate and the water was instantly hot!

Port Reviews

Wonderful port! Maritime Museum and the Column, The Victorian Houses, the Lewis and Clark experience are all excellent experiences. We did it all!

Definitely go on the JetBoat Tour of Hell’s Canyon.
