A less than perfect cruise!

Review for Queen of the West to U.S.A.

We had been receiving mailers from American Cruise line for years and chose them for our return to cruising after a hiatus due to Covid. We were promised the ship would be no more than 80% occupancy due to Covid. This was not the case as several other passengers commented the ship was at 100% of capacity. Our next problem arose at the Red Lion hotel in Portland. We had been informed ...

We wanted to see the river and escape our Las Vegas heat. Except for a couple of hot days in the east, mission accomplished. We learned there were terrible forest fires to our south, but we never saw the smoke. The Oregon scenery, seen from the Snake and Columbia Rivers, is spectacular. Passage through locks included. A river cruise is the way to do it, although ACL is still getting its act ...

First the good points - the American Harmony is brand new, and the cabin & bathroom are a great size. The Housekeeping, Shore side & Excursion Teams were good. All the crew were courteous and friendly. Unfortunately the Restaurant team for the most part had no prior experience or training. Dinners were particularly disappointing in selection, quality, lack of imagination and limited options (3 ...

LOVED THIS RIVER CRUISE!!! Every meal was outstanding and the staff was incredibly attentive! We met so many new friends with the ability to sit with new people whenever you wanted. We loved the plantation tours and the USS Kidd in Baton Rouge. We already came home and watched Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte that was filmed in Houmas House and plan on watching Tom Hanks in Greyhound that was filmed ...

Horrible cruise for the money.

We wanted to cruise the Columbia River & Snake River because of the scenery. Red Lion Hotel pre cruise 1 night was filthy and lots of bugs in our room. Breakfast was very slow & limited to $12.00 unless we pay the extra. Embarkation day was ok. Our room was not clean & no towels until late that evening. After 5 days we asked to have the room vacuumed. It was done the next day. Only time ...

Bumpy start, but the staff onboard and the scenery along the rivers made the cruise special.

This was was my first river cruise, but I traveled with three others who had traveled with AQSC before and love river cruising, especially the HO-HO opportunities offered by AQSC. They agreed, this cruise was a letdown. We sailed from Clarkston to Portland and I’d recommend that sailing, especially if you are a Lewis & Clark fan. You get to experience the changing scenery and follow their ...

No real regard for the needs of a handicapped passenger

Booked this cruise for my mom's 90th birthday celebration. When I requested a handicapped room, I was told all rooms are handicapped accessible. They were not. We spent the first day and a half waiting for an accessible room. I requested and received confirmation that we were seated for early dining as my mom needed to eat at a particular time, not at 8 pm in the evening. We boarded the ...

This was the third actual cruise for the American Empress after the reopening. We started from Clarkston WA and sailed down the Snake and Columbia Rivers. The cruise was fairly full and the crew was slightly short handed. But the officers and assigned people filled in marvelously well. The cabins are small and compact on the Empress but most have private verandas. Food was American style, ...

I loved American cruises so much that I just came back from a second one. I took one earlier this year. I felt safe from Covid- everyone has been vaccinated on board, and we all had covid tests before embarkation. That made for a very comfortable, secure trip. It's nice to get to travel after all this time and not feel worried about the virus. The ship itself had a lot of old world charm. ...

Not Worth the Money

The food was poor to say the least. The airline chicken consisted of an unseasoned piece of meat with BBQ sauce poured on top. To make matters worse, it was raw in the middle. The short ribs were cold when they came to the table and heavily laced with fat and grizzle. The portobello mushroom sandwich consisted of two burnt pieces of toast and a mini mushroom in the middle. The baked potato was ...
