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.

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.

Grand scale luxury and classic style await you aboard the American Empress. Join us for a paddlewheel cruise through America’s Pacific Northwest. Indulge yourself with delicious, onboard dining choices, welcoming staff and country club ambiance, and then view the vessel’s collection of North American regional artifacts from the Gold Rush and sternwheeler eras and more.
