American Queen Voyages reported a 2022 single day booking record on Feb. 25, surpassing the previous high mark by 10%.

The line also said travel advisor inquiries were up over 20% for the second half of February and the most brochure requests were received in its history since releasing the 2022-2024 Voyage Atlas.

‘People want to cruise now, without complications and uncertainty’

‘The resounding feedback from guests and our travel advisor partners over the past two weeks is that people want to cruise now, without complications and uncertainty, and our experience checks those boxes,’ said Shawn Bierdz, chief operating officer, American Queen Voyages.

Spring Savings Event

The line announced a Spring Savings Event beginning today that offers up to $4,800 in bonus savings on select voyages for bookings made by April 30. Eligible sailings are here

Pre-cruise antigen testing

In addition, Amercan Queen Voyages will provide free COVID-19 antigen testing — rather than PCR testing as before — at the pre-cruise hotel prior to embarkation beginning March 19.

Alternatively, passengers may provide proof of a negative test by an accredited third-party with results from within two days before embarking. The line maintains its 100% vaccination environment for passengers and crew.
