American Queen’s double victory
TRAVELLERS will soon have new choices in overnight river cruising, with American Queen Steamboat Company (AQSC) closing on a deal to acquire Victory Cruise Lines.
The deal sees the identical 202-guest Victory I and Victory II join the AQSC fleet under the Victory Cruise name and provide “old world luxury on intimate coastal cruises”.
The vessels will re-enter service in May following a multimillion-dollar refurbishment and upgrade program and offer 10-day, all-inclusive sailings on the Great Lakes.
Victory I will sail between Montreal and Detroit while Victory II will cruise between Toronto and Chicago.
