CRUISE DEAL OF THE WEEK – January 6, 2023


Happy Friday, Cruisers! 

As the holidays come to an end, you might begin thinking about your 2023 travels. Well, you’re in luck! American Queen Voyages has just announced its 2023 Winter Savings Event, offering prospective guests up to $2,500 in savings and free roundtrip airfare. 

American Queen Voyages is offering guests newly crafted all-inclusive fares, including a one-night pre-cruise hotel stay, unlimited guided tours, unlimited beverages, and more. These all-inclusive fares will include pre-paid gratuities, port taxes, and fees for the first time. The 2023 season will feature new itineraries, themed cruises, a resident Lakelorian program on the Great Lakes, and much more. 

“We are looking forward to an exciting kickoff to Wave season and 2023, where American Queen Voyages will be offering even more extraordinary experiences for our guests who are looking to deeply discover North America with us,” says Cindy D’Aoust, American Queen Voyages president. “Travelers can expect the same incredible Rivers, Lakes & Oceans, and Expedition voyages, now elevated with even more inclusions.”

American Queen Voyages’ new Lakelorian program is debuting aboard Ocean Voyager and Ocean Navigator on the Great Lake itineraries. Similar to the Riverlorian program, the Lakelorian program’s goal is to immerse guests in the history and culture of each destination. American Queen Voyages has partnered with The National Museum of the Great Lakes to create the program, featuring a lecture from the museum on display. 

This year, American Queen Voyages will also launch new City Stay packages between the Pacific Northwest, Northeast, and Southeast U.S.A, which includes a new 2023 Official Glacier National Park Pre-Cruise Experience. The Official Vancouver/Victoria Post-Cruise Experience will stop in popular spots across the cities, including the Butchart Gardens & Butterfly Gardens.

The cruise line will also debut new Themed Voyages and Special Events Cruises in 2023, offering guests a more immersive experience discovering each region. American Queen Voyages will offer guests Culinary Cruises, accompanied by Culinary Ambassador Regina Charboneau. Guests can enjoy wine cruises, bourbon cruises, and Holidays on the River cruises.
