Great Pacific Northwest - Steamboat Cruise

September 17, 2017 to September 25, 2017

Incredibly beautiful and wildly bountiful, the Pacific Northwest presents a miraculous geological masterpiece where lush forests blanket dramatic slopes, imposing mountains cradle mighty rivers, and sparkling waterfalls cascade into breathtaking gorges. Experience this spectacular region that captivated intrepid explorers as you cruise the Columbia and Snake Rivers aboard the American Empress, the largest and most elegant riverboat west of the Mississippi. Begin with a stay in lovely Vancouver, Washington, before embarking on your voyage in Portland, the “City of Roses.” Sail to the oldest city west of the Rockies, Astoria, delve into the unique pioneer history of The Dalles, take in splendid scenery in Stevenson, and explore the fascinating exhibits at Sacajawea State Park. Conclude your journey in Clarkston, Washington, a gateway to Hells Canyon, North America's deepest river gorge.
