An over all good trip. The food was good, the personnel very friendly and interested in providing us an enjoyable cruise. The entertainment was phenomenal. The best we have ever experienced on a cruise, including Celebrity, Viking, Carnaval, Disney and Royal Caribbean. Kudos to cruise director Ryan and the entire musical staff.

Interesting, comfortable trip

The ship is beautiful and comfortable. The staff were excellent. They greeted us with an upgrade having determined that we'd be more comfortable in a larger room. Service was excellent. Food was varied and very good. The included excursions were a little redundant. I guess there's not much to see except museums, historic homes, plantations and museums. The "riverlorian" lectures were very interesting. Entertainment was good. Great musicians and singers. Some of the bigger shows were a bit "hokey" A highlight was a Samuel Clemons enactor.

Cruising the Columbia & Snake Rivers

By: Anne P


Reviewed on: 17 Jun 2019

Our boat was Queen of the West, and older paddle wheel boat. The rooms were small, but very clean, and who spends time in their room anyway? The staff was amazing as well, very attentive to anything you need. There wasn't much to do on the boat except sleep, eat and drink, but there were included excursions at every stop. We took advantage of those and they were very well planned and timely. A few of them cost extra, and most of them were worth it. Just don't do the wine tasting, that was a bomb. The food on the ship was good, but not consistent in portion sizes, the dining staff was obviously new, young, and not to experienced. But they worked really hard and tried their best. This cruise we took on the Columbia was so worth the money you paid. It was interesting, beautiful and easy. We went through a few locks which was neat too. I would highly recommend it. It was good enough that several people we spoke to already rebooked onto another cruise for next year!

Steaming down Big Muddy

By: DeeJee


Reviewed on: 19 Jun 2019

The Pre-cruise program and the cruise itself were both well organized. Off-ship tours were excellent, meals were varied and very interesting. The on-board entertainment was a bit spotty--the bar performers were great-- but the stage performances in the Grand Salon could have been better and more varied.

American Pride

Scenery on the Columbia and Snake River was spectacular. The food was excellent, as well as the service of the staff. Accommodations for the single cabin #311 was a nice surprise. The entertainment really, really needed some improvement. By 9:30 p.m. the Ship had died and gone to heaven. I was too young for this trip. If I live long enough, would re-consider in my mid 80's. The dress code in the book "Country Club Casual" needs a definition. What 80% of the people wore for dinner was more like "Country Club Sloppy" In other words, dirty tennis shoes, jeans & gray tee shirt , shorts & a top that you've worn since breakfast. You certainly don't need a coat & tie or a long dress, but IT SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO DRESS APPROPRIATELY FOR DINNER. THE ATTIRE AT DINNER WAS A DISGRACE, WHY BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT ENFORCING "COUNTRY CLUB CASUAL". Would I recommend this trip Yes and No depending on your age.
