Blue Spruce LLC, a subsidiary of Connecticut-based small-ship operator American Cruise Lines, has purchased the 142-passenger paddle wheeler Queen of the West from the former Majestic America Line.
The Queen of the West last sailed for Majestic America Line on Columbia River itineraries up to the end of 2008. There is no word currently on what American Cruise Lines will do with the ship, if anything. However, it sounds like an opportunity to expand to other popular American waters.
Stay tuned for more in the future on Queen of the West.
