Ambassadors Creates Majestic America Line

Ambassadors International said its wholly-owned subsidiary, Ambassadors Cruise Group, has combined its American river and coastal cruising companies—American West Steamboat Company and Delta Queen Steamboat Company—in to one new brand called Majestic America Line. The combined companies will start operating under the new name later this year. Majestic America Line will have a fleet of six U.S.-flagged, American-crewed cruise ships plying the coastal and inland waterways and rivers of America. Vessels include American Queen, the Mississippi Queen, the historic Delta Queen, as well, the Queen of the West, the Empress of the North and the Executive Explorer. In 2007, Majestic America Line will offer more than 215 departures and call at 70 port cities and destinations.
