Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

American Queen Steamboat Company and sister brand Victory Cruise Lines recently merged to become American Queen Voyages.

The combined company continues to operate cruises aboard elegant paddlewheelers on the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, Cumberland and Illinois rivers in America's heartland and the Columbia and Snake rivers in the Pacific Northwest.

Now, in addition to river cruises, the line will also operate small-ship coastal cruises and expedition sailings in North America under the American Queen Voyages name. These ships visit inland harbors, secluded bays and charming ports in destinations like Alaska, the Great Lakes, Eastern Canada and New England, the southeastern United States and Mexico. To see these sailings, click here.

Here's an attractive offer from American Queen Voyages for our customers.

Save up to $2,000 per stateroom on 2022 and 2023 river cruises. Book by October 31.

The line has a number of new themed river itineraries for 2022. Discover the Lower Mississippi's storied past and explore the favorite hangouts of former inhabitants on Exploring Haunted History, or pack your best tie-dye shirts and bell bottoms and get ready to move to the rhythm of the 1970s on Celebrate the 70s.

Cruise fares include a pre-voyage 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 with your cruise.

Last, American Queen Voyages is offering a "Risk-Free Booking" program that gives customers who book now through October 31 for travel through March 31, 2022, the flexibility to switch to a different cruise in 2021 or 2022 up to 21 days prior to departure without penalty. Customers would just need to pay any difference in price if the second cruise costs more than the first.
