In addition to river cruises, American Queen Voyages also operates small-ship coastal cruises and expedition sailings in North America. These ships visit inland harbors, secluded bays and picturesque ports in destinations like the Great Lakes, Eastern Canada and New England, the southeastern United States and Alaska.
