American West

Ship Overview

A veteran of the Columbia and Snake Rivers, American West, formerly Queen of the West, will receive a total redesign, allowing our guests to experience the nostalgia of classic paddlewheeler travel, while enjoying perfect comfort and the most modern amenities.

In time for the 2022 cruise season, American West will be completely made-over with new color palettes, luxurious textiles and linens, new furniture and carpets, and artwork and flourishes. From the staterooms and suites to the lounges and dining rooms, the new d├ęcor will pay homage to the legendary Columbia & Snake Rivers.
   
American West will feature well-appointed staterooms with private balconies offering unobstructed views of the beautiful Pacific Northwest landscapes. In addition to the amazing scenery, our master chefs have been busy preparing menus that are tailored specifically to this captivating region.
