Oregon River Cruises

Step back in time on an elegant paddlewheel steamboat

With her iconic red paddlewheel and Victorian charm, the American Empress steamboat is one of the most elegant and grand ways to travel in the Pacific Northwest. Traverse the Columbia and Snake rivers on an Oregon river cruise to experience the most beautiful scenery between Portland and Clarkston.

An American Empress cruise is as memorable for the sights onboard the ship as for the sights on the river banks. With a vast collection of some of the finest Native Alaskan, Russian and Gold Rush era artefacts as well as stunning décor and exceptional dining, this cruise is an experience to remember.
