Welcome to the Pacific Northwest—where the Columbia and Snake Rivers wind through gentle hills, imposing mountains, dramatic canyons, and fertile fields. The land appears today much like it did to Lewis and Clark in 1805: majestic, unspoiled, and unimaginably glorious. From the awe-inspiring beauty of the Columbia River Gorge and the cascading majesty of Multnomah Falls to the masterfully crafted wines of Washington’s celebrated wine country, treat yourself to the region’s unforgettable natural wonders and attractions.
The incredible scenery and intriguing history of the Great American West come to life on board the American Empress, your floating boutique hotel. Enjoy casual elegance and sweeping river views aboard the largest and most elegant riverboat in the Pacific Northwest that combines Victorian inspired decor with frontier flair. Unwind in the Paddlewheel Lounge, sample regional cuisine in The Astoria Dining Room, and, at the end
of the day, retreat to the comfort of your fine accommodations. Discover one of America’s most treasured, bountiful regions on a journey aboard the 209-passenger American Empress, specifically designed to celebrate the centuries-old tradition of exploration in the West.

River Cruise: American Empress
Proudly serving as the largest overnight riverboat west of the Mississippi River, the American Empress delivers classic elegance and modern luxury on a grand scale. One step onboard and you will quickly discover that there is far more to this vessel than her welcoming appearance and signature red paddlewheel.
Boasting a vast collection of some of the finest historical artifacts and artwork of the Native Alaska, Russian, Gold Rush and sternwheeler eras, the corridors of the American Empress hold nearly as much beauty and intrigue as the dramatic scenery unfolding on the river outside. You needn't be an art enthusiast to appreciate the captivating display of Pacific Northwest heritage that this unique collection represents.
A river cruise aboard the American Empress incites moments of sheer perfection with her seamless blend of stunning backdrops, exceptional dining venues, dynamic public spaces and stunning décor. We invite you to step aboard and delight in the luxurious modern amenities, gracious service and endless authentic experiences that await you.
