Wind through the canyons and forested vistas of Cascadia on this seven-night journey aboard the American Empress. Enjoy an included one-night hotel stay in Vancouver, Washington at the beginning of your adventure. Explore the city’s bounty of craft breweries, farm-to-table restaurants, and charming gardens. Board the American Empress and cruise to Astoria, the oldest city west of the Rocky Mountains. Stroll its historic downtown to browse the chic cafés and shops. Spend a day sailing the idyllic Columbia River, then stop in Stevenson, a laid-back town in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area with peaceful riverfront parks and energetic pubs. Discover the history of frontiersmen and gunslingers in The Dalles, once known as the end of the Oregon Trail. Make a stop in Richland, a city nestled in the Tri-Cities metropolitan area, which is known for its outdoor recreation and attractions like Sacajawea State Park. Nearby is a renowned winemaking region sprinkled with award-winning vineyards. Before your journey comes to an end, immerse yourself in the history of Clarkston—learn about the time Lewis and Clark spent here, see gold fever memorabilia, and take in views from Hells Canyon, North America’s deepest river gorge.
