Victory Cruise Lines (VCL), operated by American Queen Steamboat Company (AQSC), announced its all-new Risk-Free Booking Policy: Come Home to America in 2021. As part of the new offer, guests who book their 2021 voyages by Sept. 30, 2020 can receive up to $1,400 in savings when they pay in full.

In addition, guests have the option to change or cancel their voyage up to 121 days prior to departure and receive a full, 100 percent refund. Per the offer’s terms and conditions, the $250 administration fee associated with VCL brand cruise bookings will be waived for all 2021 bookings made prior to the September 30 expiration date and cancelled at least 121 days prior to departure. The policy is valid for future and existing 2021 cruise reservations, including group bookings, and is not valid for re-bookings from 2020 to 2021.

These new savings follow VCL’s recent unveiling of its enhanced health and safety protocols, as well as its all new itineraries for the 2021 season, including the highly anticipated Ocean Victory sailing in Alaska and new routes on the Great Lakes, Canadian Maritimes, New England and the Southeastern U.S.

“Victory Cruise Lines is committed to providing not only a safe cruise experience for our guests, but also greater transparency on our policies and peace of mind through more flexible booking policies,” said John Waggoner, founder and CEO of American Queen Steamboat Company. “In times of great uncertainty, we hope that our Risk-Free Booking Policy, in addition to our new health and safety protocols, will help guests and travel agents book with confidence knowing that their investment is protected.”

Guests can take advantage of the Come to America in 2021 promotion on Victory Cruise Lines’ brand-new itineraries including the 12- and 13-day Discover Beyond Alaska Expedition Cruises on the upcoming Ocean Victory between Vancouver, B.C. and Sitka, Alaska. In addition, the Victory I and Victory II will return to sailing with updated routes, including a 12-day Southeastern U.S. cruise, which will sail roundtrip to Amelia Island, Fla. (Fernandina Beach). In the coming weeks, VCL will also be announcing plans for new winter itineraries for both the Victory I and Victory II.

VCL has also created enhanced health and safety protocols to keep guests, crew and the communities the vessels visit safe in the face of COVID-19. New steps being implemented include pre-cruise screening, crew screening, updated boarding processes and increased sanitation measures. These new policies are in place and ready to be implemented when VCL resumes operations in 2021. For more information on VCL’s policies, please visit:
