Dear Vacations To Go Customer,
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, river cruises around the world
temporarily stopped operating. River cruises in the U.S. are expected to
resume soon, however, and American Queen Steamboat Company plans to
start on August 2 with a "Columbia & Snake Rivers" itinerary.
American Queen Steamboat Company features a collection of modern, elegant paddlewheelers that cruise the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland rivers in America's heartland and the Columbia and Snake rivers in the Pacific Northwest. The line has released its itineraries, dates and rates for 2021.
Vacations To Go customers can save up to $3,000 per stateroom on 2021 cruises with American Queen Steamboat Company.
Cruise fares for 2021 dates include a pre-voyage hotel night, superb cuisine, world-class entertainment, comprehensive Hop-On Hop-Off shore excursions, onboard enrichment programs, select wine and beer with dinner, 24-hour room service, Wi-Fi service and unlimited soft drinks and specialty coffees throughout the trip.
New for 2021, the company will introduce The Queen's Collection, a group of thoughtfully planned cruises that highlight special experiences. These sailings pair lively onboard events with exclusive shore excursions. Celebrate Independence Day and enjoy a performance from American musician Lee Greenwood on a Star-Spangled Cruise, visit the National Quilt Museum and Discovery Park of America on The Art of Discovery or play at four prestigious golf courses along the lower Mississippi on an American River Golf Classic.
American Queen Steamboat Company's newest riverboat, the 245-passenger American Countess, will embark on new cruises along the Illinois River in September 2021. Tour the historical site of Lincoln's New Salem in Havana, amble among butterfly gardens and elegant boutiques in Ottawa and explore Peoria's bustling art and culture scene. The American Countess also cruises the Mississippi, Ohio, Cumberland and Tennessee rivers.
The 426-passenger American Queen is the largest steamboat sailing overnight cruises on the Mississippi River and its tributaries. It serves as the flagship of American Queen Steamboat Company.
Rounding out the collection of authentic paddlewheelers are the 166-passenger American Duchess, a boutique-style riverboat that features four two-story loft suites, and the 221-passenger American Empress, which cruises the scenic Columbia and Snake rivers.
Victory Cruise Lines is the sister company of American Queen Steamboat Company, and its ships are designed for discovery cruising. In 2021, the company will explore Alaska's spectacular landscapes on the new 200-passenger Ocean Victory, built for cruising this pristine region.
The 202-passenger M/V Victory I and M/V Victory II navigate inland harbors, secluded bays and remote ports that larger ships can't reach in destinations like the Great Lakes, Canada and New England and the Southeastern United States. To see all departures for Victory Cruise Lines, click here.
Victory Cruise Lines' fares include shore excursions, enrichment programs, evening entertainment, onboard meals, afternoon tea, a daily cocktail hour, non-premium beer, wine and spirits, coffee and soft drinks and Wi-Fi, as well as a pre-cruise hotel night in the embarkation city.
