Enjoy an included one-night stay at a hotel in Vancouver before boarding the elegant American Empress. Next, discover Astoria, the oldest city west of the Rockies, where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean.

Cruise the river and spend a day in Richland, part of the Tri-Cities metropolitan area that’s known for its outdoor recreation and natural attractions. Visit Sacajawea State Park where Lewis and Clark and their Shoshone guide camped in 1805 during their famous expedition.
