American Queen Columbia and Snake River Ships

Although we are experienced ocean and river cruisers, we've never been on a river cruise in the USA. We're thinking about doing an American Queen Columbia and Snake River cruise in October. Does this cruise line allow smoking? If so, how can I find out where the smoking areas are? I've had my veranda rendered unusable by smoke coming from nearby locations on other cruises and would like to avoid that if it's an issue.

I don't recall the particulars of the American Empress from a few years ago but, on the Duchess last August the only smoking area was one corner (outside) of the River Club and Terrace (all the way aft). Smoking was not allowed anywhere else including verandas.

We are on the American Empress right now. They allow smoking in some area (I'm not sure where up on top), but I haven't smelled smoke yet (thank goodness). Absolutely no smoking on the balconies. Yay! FYI last night they had to cancel Clarkston (we're Portland to Clarkston) due to high current on the Snake.
