  1. Would AQSC be able to assist - at least with info? Might be worth a call.
  2. Wow...right when J&J is on "pause" due to reports of blood clots.
  3. My cruise isn't until this summer and the app is showing excursions for last week. On two different cruises! A couple of excursions on two different cruises are on the same day!
  4. This is pre-pandemic but, here is an album of images of the Empress from our cruise in 2016 - westbound Clarkston to Vancouver.

  6. Installed the app on March 29 (received an email to that effect). Once logged in it shows my itinerary for this summer's cruise with correct dates and guest info. It was not showing "My Excursion Tickets" yet. OK, the app is new! Checked the app today and now it shows a series of excursion tickets for 2 different cruises with this weeks dates! I contacted AQSC and am waiting to hear back. BTW...the app also has a "Motorcoach Tracker" - not active yet.
  7. I just book several (paid) excursions for August; hopefully the HoHo are re-instated by then. Perhaps the July 1 vaccination requirement will be a factor for that.
  8. Posted yesterday (3/24)... Returning to Cruise Onboard a River Ship: Live From American Countess https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5984/
  9. American Countess River Cruise Ship Christened in New Orleans https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5974/
  10. Begins about 3:15 into the segment: https://www.today.com/video/what-does-the-future-of-travel-look-like-108752965608
  11. Clarkston, Washington October 2016....here is one of their HoHo buses.
  12. Afterwords, I could have kicked myself for not doing the premium Hanford tour! When I went through the museum on the HoHo tour I realized it might have been pretty interesting.
  13. We sailed the Empress in October 2016. "Hop on, hop off" buses were used for the complimentary tours in each port. Occupancy could vary from crowded to light. Passenger load varied; more crowded early less at later times. We enjoyed the HO-HO tours; didn't do any of the paid tours. While reduced occupancy and social distancing is mentioned on their Health and Safety page, I don't see that in the section regarding Shore Excursions. https://www.americanqueensteamboatcompany.com/health-and-safety/
  14. American Queen Steamboat Company announced last month this vaccination policy: VACCINATIONS COVID-19 vaccination is required for all guests and crew for all sailings beginning July 1, 2021.
