The American Queen Steamboat Company has purchased a steamboat to explore the Columbia River and Snake River.

The former Empress of the North, built for and operated by the now defunct American West Steamboat Company / Majestic America Line, will be renamed American Empress, and begin sailing the Columbia River and Snake River starting April 2014, offering seven-day trips between Portland and Clarkston, Wash. Ports of call include Astoria, Wash.; Stevenson, Wash.; The Dalles, Ore.; Umatilla, Ore.; and Richland, Wash.

Built in 2002, the U.S.-flagged riverboat measures 360 ft. with five towering decks and accommodates 223 guests in seven stateroom categories.
