Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

American Queen Voyages celebrates its 10th anniversary of sailing the great rivers of the U.S. this year. The company's modern, elegant paddlewheelers cruise the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, Cumberland and Illinois rivers in America's heartland and the Columbia and Snake rivers in the Pacific Northwest.

Our customers can take advantage of these terrific offers on the line's cruises:

Enjoy huge savings of 50% on cruises departing this year. Also, get $100 per couple in onboard credit. Book by May 26.

Save up to $2,000 per couple on cabin upgrades for many other river cruises and receive $100 per couple in onboard credit. Plus, on select departures, you can save an additional 10% as part of the company's Anniversary Sale.

American Queen Voyages' river vessels resemble classic 19th-century steamboats but boast all the comforts of contemporary cruising. The American Queen is the largest steamboat operating overnight cruises on the Mississippi River and its tributaries. It serves as the company's flagship and features a beautiful steam calliope on board.

The company's newest ship, the American Countess, debuted last year. It features a sleek, contemporary design and plenty of open space for guest gatherings, especially the portside bar, which offers expansive panoramic views.

Rounding out the collection of authentic paddlewheelers are the American Duchess, a boutique-style riverboat that features four two-story loft suites, and the American Empress, which explores the picturesque Columbia and Snake rivers and houses a unique collection of Native American art. The American Empress is the largest overnight riverboat west of the Mississippi.

American Queen Voyages has a number of themed itineraries available, including its Special Edition sailings. These thoughtfully planned cruises pair lively onboard events with exclusive shore excursions. Sample flavors of the Pacific Northwest on wine cruises this fall or visit special holiday markets featuring local artisans on Holidays on the River. There are also American Culinary Experience sailings hosted by the line's Culinary Ambassador, Chef Regina Charboneau, offering onboard cooking demonstrations and port explorations with regional chefs.

The line also operates small-ship coastal cruises and expedition sailings in North America. These ships visit inland harbors, secluded bays and charming ports in destinations like the Great Lakes, Eastern Canada and New England, the southeastern United States, Alaska and Mexico. To see all of these sailings, click here.

Cruise fares include a pre-cruise hotel night, guided tours, regionally inspired cuisine, live onboard entertainment, all-day room service, Wi-Fi and unlimited soft drinks and specialty coffees throughout the trip. Enjoy choice spirits, wine and local craft beer -- all included in the price.
