American Cruise Line - Queen of the West Renovations

American Cruise Lines, a leader in small ship cruising, announced today that
the multi-million dollar renovation of the Queen of the West, which operates one week cruises
from Portland, Oregon, is now nearing completion. Reconstruction of major areas including
passenger staterooms, community areas, the galley and engine room, continues in Portland
and progress remains ahead of schedule.

The renovations will provide a more comfortable and elegant atmosphere for cruise
passengers. New furniture for the entire ship, custom built in North Carolina, is ready and has
arrived in Portland.

A new authentic paddle-wheel has been built along with additional propulsion equipment that
allows for quieter, smoother cruising while having less impact on the environment.
Other additions such as larger staterooms, more private balconies and a new library have
already been completed. New carpet is being laid and decoration throughout the Queen of the
West is being revamped.

“American Cruise Lines is delighted with the work being performed on the Queen of the West,”
said Timothy Beebe, Vice President, American Cruise Lines. “We are excited to welcome
passengers aboard this spring for cruises on the Columbia and Snake Rivers.”

  1. Hi all,

    One of the delights of sailing with American cruise lines is the lack of hassle. There is no need of ID cards for passengers just walk on and off, with the crew member at the gangway recognizing everyone by face. It is a small-ship cruise line based in the united states. Thanks a lot!
