American Pride to Pacific Northwest

Most river cruisers travel in Europe and Asia, but American Cruise Lines — the largest operator of small ships in the U.S. — is sending a second ship to the Pacific Northwest.
American Pride will be joining Queen of the West to sail the Columbia and Snake rivers next year.
The repositioning of American Pride is the latest in growth and expansion of this cruise company. The 150-passenger ship, built only three years ago, has been the leading cruise ship on the Mississippi River. To meet the high demand for cruising on the Columbia and Snake rivers, this authentic paddle wheeler was re-named and will offer 7-to-10-day cruises, beginning April 2.
The American Pride will be replaced on the Mississippi next year by the larger America, currently being completed at Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, Maryland.
American’s reputation — according to the cruise line —rests on its service and attention to guests. Chefs source local ingredients, and programs are led by experts in the fields of history, nature and culture, sharing their knowledge and passion for the region’s best-kept treasures.
The American Pride will boast the largest staterooms on the Columbia and the Snake. All suites offer expansive views (from anywhere within the stateroom) of the Columbia River Gorge’s lush landscapes, volcanic Mount St. Helens and brilliance of Multnomah Falls, on the route pioneered by Lewis and Clark over 200 years ago. There’s an abundant selection of all-inclusive onboard features: finely styled mahogany clad lounges, complimentary cocktail hours and locally celebrated musicians.
