River Cruise Newsletter Dated July 1, 2015

Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

The beautiful, modern-day paddle wheelers of the American Queen Steamboat Company sail the Mississippi, Ohio and Tennessee rivers in the heartland and the Columbia and Snake rivers in the Pacific Northwest. Every cruise includes complimentary wine and beer at dinner and bottled water, soft drinks and specialty coffees throughout the voyage.

The company is offering Vacations To Go customers fantastic savings for last-minute summer travel and on cruises this fall when you book and pay in full by July 31. Click the links below for applicable departures and rates.

Here are a few more specials.

Save $800 to $1,000 per couple ($400 to $500 per person) off 2016 sailings when you book and pay in full.

Receive one free hotel night before your cruise when you book select departures 60 days in advance.

Enjoy free shore excursions on every sailing.

The 432-passenger American Queen is the world's largest riverboat sailing overnight on the Mississippi River and its tributaries. It's a remarkable sight on the water, sporting white gingerbread trim, black fluted stacks and a giant red paddle wheel. The staterooms and public areas reflect Victorian elegance, with antiques, Tiffany glass and polished mahogany.

All of the American Queen's sailings follow a theme. For example, you can celebrate the simple joys of summer (complete with apple pie, lemonade and kite-flying off the top deck) on last-minute Good Old Summertime departures traveling between dynamic St. Louis and the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Or, take a nostalgic journey on Big Band Swing cruises departing this September. Singer Lynn Roberts, who has worked with the Dorsey Brothers, Harry James and Doc Severinsen, will perform on board and share stories about the golden years of this musical era. Also, The Great American Swing Band, a 13-piece ensemble, will inspire singing and dancing with celebrated tunes played in their original arrangements.

On the Columbia & Snake rivers, the 237-guest American Empress glides through a magnificent panorama of plunging waterfalls, soaring mountains, deep canyons and rolling, green hills.

At state and national historic sites, you'll learn about Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery through their interactions with the Nez Perce people and Native American interpreter Sacajawea. Stop at the Sunshine Mills Winery in The Dalles or the Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center near Stevenson. Included "hop-on, hop-off tours" allow you to explore each destination at your own pace.
