  3. Queen of the West
The Columbia River scenery was nice, the locks and dams were interesting. The pros: Laid back Quiet not crowded Casual The cons: Cabins are really small Food is very marginal and little choice Snacks are very salty, pretzels etc., not good for seniors Waiters are really young and inexperienced. Some real surprises here. Shore tours are pricey, save your money Not much to do on board, just relax and read Entertainment was really lacking Mostly old folks, some friendly, some are not Grossly unfair? They allowed some folks to reserve tables, bummer Hot food is cold, service is really poor Young kids who do not really fit in, some of them are trying Actually, the kids are overworked, do food handling then the restroom cleaning

Over priced and not too good

Cabin Review

Cabin 300
Cabin was small and obsolete. Almost impossible to get the cabin made up.Dining service was slow and problematicalObviously, this company is cutting costs on management, there is none, none!Food choices were minimal, food was cold or overdone. Sort of like going to a poorly mom and pop casual food service.Columbia river scenery was good, the Garden Hotel in Spokane was fabulous!!!
