Thank you for your honest feedback and review! We deeply appreciate all comments and consider them when planning for the future. While the Pacific Northwest fires were unexpected and devastating in many ways, our team worked around the clock to provide the best possible revised itinerary that met all logistics needs for the cruise on very short notice . We are sorry that your cruise did not meet expectations, but hope that this does not deter you from considering us in the future. We would love to see you onboard again (hopefully without any natural disasters interfering) so that you and your group can experience a full American Queen Steamboat Company journey that we consistently receive rave reviews about.
Thank you again, for taking the time to share your thoughts and comments. We are grateful for feedback such as this, so that we can continue to make improvements on all of our journeys.
