A veteran of the Columbia and Snake Rivers, Queen of the West underwent a major renovation in 2011, with upgrades throughout. Onboard you’ll find an intimate atmosphere with multiple lounges and cozy staterooms, just smaller than other American Cruise Lines ships. Only 120 guests allows for congenial camaraderie, and the attentive service of American Cruise Lines shine brilliantly.
