American Empress has 4 decks and the Astoria Dining Room is the main restaurant where you can enjoy a formal dinner while if you prefer a more informal style you can go to the River Grill which is located on the top deck. At the Show Lounge every evening you can enjoy fantastic shows, relive historic moments or listen to famous river stories originally told by Lewis and Clark.
Alternatively, make sure you bring your dancing shoes to get wild at the Paddlewheel Lounge to enjoy a late night live set. With American Empress, you can explore famous port cities like Vancouver and Astoria as you cruise along the Columbia River, or choose to sail from Portland to Spokane. Thanks to enrichment programmes, you can learn more about the places you travel to, see the highlights of each port on one of the guided tours or attend interesting lectures on local history and culture.

Beautiful cruise and beautiful landscapes

I liked

I didn't like


A beautiful cruise on the American Empress board to discover Washington, Idaho and Oregon. The ship is not very big but still comfortable to enjoy moments of relaxation after days of exploration. Check-in was quick and easy. The food was very good and well served, but above all there was a lots of choice. The bar service was efficient as well. In the evening there was a show in the theatre and then a hall with a pianist who played good music. As for the destinations, the scenery was breathtaking and the excursions were accompanied by friendly and very knowledgeable guides, a cruise that combines beautiful destinations and very friendly service, I recommend it to everyone!
