American Queen Voyages has announced updates for 2024, which will see the cruise line focus on its fleet of riverboats on the Mississippi, Snake and Columbia Rivers and its expedition vessel, Ocean Victory, cruising Alaska and British Columbia.

American Queen Voyages has also announced that after November 2023 it will not return to the Great Lakes and the intention is to sell its identical small ships, Ocean Navigator and Ocean Voyager.

Rupert Thomson, managing director of American Queen Voyages representative in the UK & Europe, Light Blue Travel, said: “American Queen Voyages is best known for its hugely popular, paddlewheel steamboats which traverse the lower and upper Mississippi and also sail the Columbia and Snake rivers in the Pacific north-west. Whilst sorry that the Great Lakes will no longer be featured it has always been the rivers of the USA that have attracted the European market and our forward bookings reflect this. We’re also seeing increased interest in responsible, expedition cruising and will continue to promote Alaskan cruises on American Queen Voyage’s innovative Ocean Victory, which combines the perfect comfort of guests with respect and protection of the delicate environment.”
