Source: American Cruise Lines

Cruising close to home™ just keeps getting better and better. American Cruise Lines will add another brand new modern riverboat to its fleet on the Columbia & Snake Rivers in 2021.

In just the past few years, American has introduced the first modern riverboats in the U.S.A, built 5 new small ships, and doubled its capacity on both the Columbia & Snake as well as the Mississippi River. Next year, when American adds its second new 190-guest modern riverboat to the Columbia & Snake, the Line will operate 2 paddlewheelers and 2 modern riverboats in the region.

“Our fleet has grown substantially in recent years, and with more ships under construction, we are not slowing down anytime soon,” said Charles B. Robertson, President and CEO of the Line. “The modern riverboats have been received wonderfully and we look forward to continued expansion on both the Columbia and the Mississippi River systems.”

American’s range of small ship styles allows them to offer the widest variety of cruises on the Columbia and Snake Rivers. The Line offers 5, 8, and 11 Day itineraries from early April through October each year between Portland, OR and Clarkston, WA. American’s cruises are carefully curated and explore all the beauty and history of the American West. Each cruise includes a complimentary pre-cruise hotel and transportation package from either departure city.
