See the real Canada, the original Canada, as unspoiled as when the voyageurs moved up and down its waterways, as modern as the great St. Lawrence International Seaway and its spectacular locks and man-made canals. Sail on a replica steamboat. The Canadian Empress is a grand ship with a warm and friendly personality. The interior is designed in charming early heritage style. Whether it is the heritage furnishing, or the brass handrails complemented by ornate metal ceilings, your ship recaptures the grace of a turn-of-the-last-century lifestyle.
St. Lawrence Deck
The St Lawrence Deck is the main accommodation level on the Canadian Empress. The St. Lawrence, Sterling and Premier Category staterooms can be found on this deck. All staterooms on this deck are above the waterline with opening windows to the fresh river air. Also located on this deck is our Corner Store. This is where you will find a nice selection of souvenirs a few toiletries and at the end of your journey this is where all outstanding accounts are settled.
St. Lawrence Staterooms
All 8 Ottawa category staterooms are accessed from this level as are both of our outdoor observation decks. It is also on the Ottawa deck you will find our Grand Saloon. The Grand Saloon in its Turn-of-the-Century warmth is where all meals are served and all of our nightly entertainment is enjoyed.
Lounge & Bar
Sit back relax and enjoy some of Canada's most beautiful scenery. From your comfortable deck chair or lounge watch as each scene unfolds. Join your Cruise Director on the sun deck for some fun activities including shuffleboard or kite flying.
